Island of Losinj

Lošinj Island is situated in the northern region of the Adriatic Sea, and is considered to be one of Croatia’s most idyllic island destinations. Losinj is well known for its lush green hills and vegetation, stunning bays and natural harbour. It was once a popular holiday spot for royal families. The main resort on the island is Mali Losinj, which attracts the tourist crowds with its beautiful Cikat Bay, gorgeous beach, and excellent windsurfing conditions and watersports activities. Tranquil and scenic Lošinj has something to offer everyone, whether you’re a history lover, a culture vulture or a foodie.

Encircled with scented centuries-old pine forests and endemic plant species, the landscape of Lošinj is a breathtaking sight to behold. The Lošinj and Cres archipelago comprises of 36 islands, islets and rocks, only seven of which are inhabited. From the major vantage points dotted all over the island you can enjoy stunning vistas of the tamed wilderness, and panoramic views of Mali Lošinj. From the peak of St Ivan Mountain, you can admire the dramatic panorama of Veli Lošinj. The island also has beautiful pebble and coarse sandy beaches that are naturally wild and well maintained.

Learn all about Lošinj’s history and heritage on a visit to the Lošinj Museum. The sprawling museum comprises of three buildings that are located on two islands. Two of the buildings are situated in Lošinj, and the third is on the neighbouring island of Cres. Admire the permanent exhibitions on display and the collection of art treasures. Explore the charming village of Veli Lošinj, which was once an important port and fishing centre. Admire its indented coastline and the landscape that is covered with fragrant herbs. Get a taste of the island at one of the local restaurants that offer spectacular views on the summer terrace, and delicious classic Croatian cuisine.

Lošinj boasts some of the most impressive spas and wellness retreats in Eastern Europe. Many exclusive wellness zones are located in upscale hotels and offer an extensive range of relaxing massages, facials and body treatments. For sheer pampering indulgence, enjoy an hour-long ‘Hot Chocolate’ massage with warm cocoa butter oil. Alternatively, lie back and enjoy a gentle and detoxifying ‘Signature Cold Stone Massage’ which includes the placing of smooth, cold stones from the Adriatic Sea on various parts of the body.
