There are over 250 kilometers of promenades and hiking trails on five islands. Losinj was one of the first Adriatic tourist destinations with a 120 year old health tourism tradition. Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate with over 2600 hours of sun per year, pine forests and salt in the air, Losinj was declared a health resort in 1892.

with its 6000 inhabitants it is the largest Adriatic island settlement. Mali Losinj is also the main Losinj seaport that is connected to Pula, Zadar and Island of Cres by ferry service. One can also come by car from Cres, using the road that connects the villages of Nerezine, Sveti Jakov, Cunski, Mali Losinj and Veli Losinj. It is also possible to come by plane (Mali Losinj has an airport that is currently active only for small private aircrafts). Every guest will find their ideal accommodation on Losinj. Luxury, comfort, independence or casualness - one only needs to select an appropriate hotel, villa, apartment, room or a camp, and those who desire a more discrete island setting can look for apartments on the neighboring islands of Susak, Unije and Ilovik.
