Lounge
$$$
“Like from The Beach Boys song "Welcome to Cocomo!", a club with world class style. It is located in center of Novalja and offers you an open and closed roof top at the same time. It has very attractive interior and represents a stilish club with touch of Miami, Dubai etc. This is one of my favourite places to go out, especially because of amazing music and great atmosphere. ”

“The Big Yellow House is the most unique hostel experience in Novalja. Owned and managed by two friends who originally met on the island, the BYH soon became a local institution for travellers visiting Novalja . We offer something different for our backpackers and holiday makers that you cannot find elsewhere in Novalja. When visiting the BYH you will experience a unique atmosphere, friendly staff, live performances in their 24/7 bar or relax and chill out in a spacious garden.”
