I have cleaned up the grammar of this article. Someone with good knowledge of Croatian/Dalmatian history should check the history in this article, perhaps making it more specific or accurate. The article seems to rely on one external web site about Rab.--Iacobus 03:03, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Confused[edit]

Rab is also known as a pioneer of naturism after the visit of King Edward VIII and Mrs Wallis Simpson.- Can someone please explain the connection, I can't find anything in any of the relevant pages...Norgy (talk) 21:23, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Kandalora beach (sometimes reffered as English Beach or Engleska Plaža) popular and well appointed naturist beach... [1]
Some famous people, although not born here, liked to come to Rab, such as the English King Edward VIII, who came here with his wife Wallace in 1936. Enchanted by the beauty of the town and the surrounding area, he swam naked in Kandarola Bay. This did not astonish Rab's citizens, since the first nudist beach was opened on Rab two years prior to the king's arrival. Nevertheless, the moment when Edward VIII stepped into the sea without his swimming trunks was accepted as the official beginning of nudism on the island. Thus Rab became a forerunner of nudist beaches on the Adriatic. The nudist beach is situated in Kandarola Bay even today... [2] Zenanarh (talk) 08:50, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
