Croatia has over 1,000 islands, and Losinj, floating in the northern Adriatic, could be the most memorable of all of them. Often overlooked for the likes of Dubrovnik and Split, this is to its advantage as it’s much more peaceful.
Losinj boasts the beauty that Croatia is renowned for, with stunning baroque fishing villages being one of its biggest draws. Spend time in Mali Losinj, the island’s largest town. Its heart is the large crescent harbour. While away the hours walking and sitting waterside – many of the restaurants here double up as the perfect viewing platform for the Croatian sunset.
The island is blessed with quiet, beautiful beaches. Uvala Engleza Beach conjures up images of Croatian beauty – impossibly clear turquoise waters and polished pebbles guarded by bottle-green pine trees. The best bit? It can only be reached by boat, so it’s the place to escape to.
Then you have Veli Zal Beach, which has Blue Flag status. This beach comes with all of the above, plus plenty of facilities around the area for you to grab a bite to eat or drink.

When to go
July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit. It's less busy, plus the weather tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).
Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.
Introduction to languages
The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
