Music, atmosphere, dancers, light effects, sunrise view.. Name it, all of those gives you absolutely amazing feeling of moment, summer and clubbing by the Adriatic Sea. Only negative are waitress that sometimes have some "math" issues so make sure you count twice ;) Otherwise Papaya is really one of the top clubs in the world, as they've already been rewarded.

The pebbled Zrce Beach is the center of fun for thousands of youngsters on the island of Pag (close to the small towns of Novalja and Gajac). Once there, you will find 4 disco/beach clubs on a few hundred meters long walkway. Papaya is among the most popular, probably famous for its amazing animation girls. Parties are on from 4pm...

Had such a great time at this night club, did some serious dancing in here until 6am. Careful of the bar staff on the first bar at the entrance they WILL over charge for drinks

It is 10000 boys and 10 girls. It is a boy club. I don't recommend it . If you are a grill is a paradise.
