Metajna is a village located in a protected bay on the inner northeast side of the Island of Pag
. Although the area seems rugged (this is one of the most naked parts of Croatia), it is actually rich with healing plants that are used by the locals and their sheep herds.

In Metajna, one should certainly mention the source of healthy mineral water and healing mud on the nearby beach, which is used to relieve rheumatic

Rucica is a popular beach in the area of Metajna, and within 10 kilometers of Metajna there are dozen beaches more, sandy, pebbled and some rather unusual beaches.
