MALI LOSINJ, LOSINJ ISLAND - LOCAL AND TOURIST INFORMATION

Mali Losinj

Mali Losinj is located at the end of a long and beautiful natural harbour on the island of Losinj, itself one of a group of islands the largest of which is Cres and also includes the islands of Unije, Ilovik, Susak and Vele Srakane. Mali Losinj can trace its origin to the Neolithic era and its history is documented from the 14th century. The town expanded rapidly during the 19th century when it was one of the most important ports and shipbuilding centres in the Adriatic. The wealth created at that time is reflected in the many fine villas of the period often built for the sea captains residing in the town and Austrian nobility who holidayed there. Today the island scenery and many bays and beaches make Mali Losinj an important tourist destination. The town with its busy harbour, is packed with restaurants, cafés, hotels and villas and apartments for rent.


Lošinj was once connected to the large island of Cres by a narrow isthmus but is now separated by a man-made canal although still joined by a bridge. Mali Losinj can be reached by ferry from Pula (Jadrolinija line 310)or by driving down the length of Cres and having first crossed onto Cres at Porozina from the mainland or at Merag from the island of Krk. All ferry details can be found on the Jadrolinija website


The excellent beaches around Mali Losinj are frequently fringed with cool pine forests. Among the best beaches are those in the bay of Cikat and at Borik.
