Lošinj and Susak Islands
Lošinj is a Croatian island in the northern Adriatic Sea, in the Kvarner Gulf. It is known for its lush vegetation, charming bays and tall pine forests. Visitors have been coming to this island known as ‘the island of vitality’ for centuries, to revitalise mind, body and spirit. Mali Lošinj is the island’s largest town, and it is the center of the island. The natural harbour in Mali Lošinj is surrounded by the beautiful Mediterranean town houses and green hills.
Susak is famous for it’s sandy beaches, beautiful folk costumes and yellow dust from which the island is made. It is this yellow dust which makes Susak unique – even the the most experienced seamen will agree there’s no similar island in the whole Mediterranean!
During winter island is practically deserted. The only 200 people who live there throughout the year are the people who stayed behind during the big emigration wave to he United States. On Susak a special dialect is spoken, which is so different from standard Croatian that nobody in Croatia understands it.
