GREAT NEWS! 💙🙏🏼🏝 The emergency services have now cleared the fire, reopened the road and deemed the route and Zrce Beach to be safe. Shuttle buses are also running as scheduled from Novalja. We are therefore pleased to confirm that Fresh Island will continue as planned with no further disruptions, starting with *Tim Westwood’s Notorious after beach party at 4pm in Papaya.
