The islands of Cres and Losinj used to be one island, but very early the Romans separated them by a channel. The climate of Losinj is very mild, due to its forests among other things, so it has developed into a health resort. Many of Europe's crowned heads came here in search of health and vitality, among them the Austrian Emperor, Franz Joseph, Prince Rudolph, and the Austrian heir-apparent Franz Ferdinand. So the building of summer residences started as early as the last century. There are many reminders of the island's rich maritime past: strange vegetation brought from overseas, museums of sailing ships in Mali and Veli Losinj and rich island houses adorned with souvenirs of distant journeys.
Intersting note: Losinj's special feature is a colony of dolphins, and there are some 150 registered so far. Dolphins are one of the best indicators of the clean sea. Losinj was the first one in the Mediterranean to be proclaimed the dolphin reservation.

Suncana Uvala - naturist beach

Suncana UvalaSuncana Uvala (Sunny cove) in the town of Mali Lošinj, naturist beach, 200m from "Vespera" and "Aurora" hotels and a large recreational and sport center of the name Veli Zal. It is a pebble and rocky beach with many small, sunny, pebble coves among rich Mediterranean vegetation. For naturists the most attractive coves are Cikat, Suncana Uvala (Sun Cove), Zlatna Uvala (Golden Cove) and Srebrna Uvala (Silver Cove). Very close to them are numerous other deserted bays ideal for nautical naturists and shy beginners. The Suncana Uvala (Sunny Cove) has often been described as a unique gift of nature. It is distinguished by its clear water and stone slabs scattered along the coast and around the strand surrounded by a dense, aromatic pine forest.

The island of Losinj has a very well marked network of tourist footpaths leading through makia and pine forests to many hidden coves that are just ideal for naturists. Detailed map of trails is available at free at local tourist offices or you can download a PDF file (250 kb) here.

Susak Island - naturist beaches Map

Susak is a small island (only 4 km/2) just west from island Losinj. The island, unique in the whole of the Mediterranean, is a geo-morphological phenomenon because it is made only from sand. The best way to get to know the island is to walk around it. The track is 11 kilometers long and runs along the shore. Wherever you stop you can have a swim. Most of the places are free for naturists. It takes a little over three hours to tour the island. There are no venomous snakes on the island or any other danger, for that matter. All you need to take on your walk is something to quench your thirst along the way. There are no roads or automobiles on the island, not only because the island is small but also because a road on the sandy soil would cause erosion. However, there is a sufficient number of interesting walking paths with stunning vistas opening to all four sides of the world.
