Discover the Secret Island of Losinj | Croatia's Most Romantic Places

It doesn't take long to see why Losinj is known as the “island of wellness and vitality.”


Its soothing sub-tropical climate. Glittering cerulean bays. The natural aromatherapy of over 1000 indigenous plants and herbs. Little-known beaches. The jubilant welcome of bottlenose dolphins. Hot peach sunsets. Yummy Mediterranean cuisine. Delicious wines.


You start to feel good just thinking about it.


Lesser travelled than some of Croatia's most popular destinations such as Split and Dubrovnik, Losinj is one of Croatia's best kept and most romantic secrets: a Mediterranean idyll of picturesque fishing villages, hidden bays and summer sunshine.

#3 Travel back in time at the Museum of Apoxyomenas

In 1996, Losinj secured its status as a destination for art and history lovers when, after thousands of years, an almost perfectly preserved Greek statue of Apoxyomenos was discovered on its seabed. Twenty years later the Museum of Apoxyomenas opened in Mali Lošinj to celebrate this sensational find. Housed in the former Kvarner Palace the museum is a work of art in itself and attracts visitors from around the globe all of whom are eager to learn the secrets of this ancient bronze sculpture.
