Novalja, a small town on the island of Pag, is known for its beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife. The island also happens to be home to one of Croatia’s most obscure locations. 

The Pag Triangle is a peculiar geological formation that forms a perfect isosceles triangle, as though something large left an impression on the ground. The triangle was discovered in 1999 and has remained unchanged ever since. What makes this site even more strange is that the rocks found inside the triangle are vastly different from those found in the surrounding area. The rocks have unique properties and appear to have been superheated at some point. Several UFologists have suggested that the rocks changed do to the landing of an ancient UFO. However, no scientific evidence has been discovered to add validity to that claim or as to why the rocks are so different 

Know Before You Go

A road was built in early 2009 connecting the nearby villages, Caska and Vidalići to the triangle. However, you will still have to cover most of the distance on foot. The map code is HX45+44 Kustići.
