The village of Zubovići overlooks the impressive landscape of the Bay of Pag and its crystal clear sea. It is located in the north-eastern part of the island of Pag, in Barbati, a group of villages that, apart from Zubovići, consists of Vidalići, Kustići and Metajna. Zubovići is situated in the central part of Barbati, which is probably why in the 18th century, when the village was founded, it was called Sridnje Selo (Middle Village).

Barbati can be reached by a ten-minute drive from the direction of Novalja or from the direction of the ferry port of Žigljen. The road leading to Barbati is very picturesque, surrounded by the typical Pag landscape of sparse vegetation and numerous drystone walls combined with the blue sky and sea. The landscape of Zubovići is completed by the Parish Church of the Immaculate Conception from 1854.

Zubovići boasts a lovely pebble beach called Veli Žal, and the village of Dražica, which belongs to the area of Zubovići, is widely known for its enchanting Plat Beach. The interest of visitors to enjoy the beauties of the local landscape has caused the tradition of work in agriculture and fishing to be replaced by providing accommodation in apartments and holiday homes.

The Kozje berdo educational and recreational hiking trail starts from Zubovići and leads to the former bauxite mine and the beautiful bays of Vela and Mala Luka, which belong to the Upper Sea. The view of the Kvarner Islands and Velebit Mountain from the top of the trail cannot be easily forgotten. In the village there is a bakery, shop, several cafes and restaurants where guests can taste the island’s specialties.
