One of greatest pleasures of Cres is to explore side roads winding among dry walls, in slavonic languages know as suhozid, on Cres as gromača. Nowsadays they are merged with environment as inseparable unit offering shelter to numerous wild species of both flora and fauna and yet they are among the most vital aspects of landscape aesthetic and identity. They're worth to preserve. Originally they were built to divide pastures on which sheeps were grazing, it was heavy work done by hands and there are literally hundreds of kilometers of suhozid accross Adriatic coasts laid like a huge lace as seen from the higher views. Now there aren't that many sheeps, the walls are getting overwhelmed by wilderness, at some spots broken and times are different yet suhozid excellently exhibits vital intelligence of the ancient men whose lives were closely connected with nature and they 'designed' with her help.
There is a great article on the web site below which explains much in detail but unfortunatelly not in English.

One of best things about Lošinj is that you can easily get away to outlying islands by public transport, boat or catamaran. Both are run by Jadrolinija and cost few euros per one way, which is cheap alternative to guided tours and beside everything, you're travelling with locals so it's not exclusive way to get around.
The only problem is that they aren't so frequent so best be at 6 am by the pier in Lošinj and head straight from there (or exit in Ilovik) to Susak if you want entire day somewhere away from crowds at Lošinj and Cres.
Another departure from Lošinj is by public boat at 1 pm and that one needs 2 and half hours before you get to Susak, but it stops a Srakane (tiny islands of Small and Great Srakane, only couple of houses there, a church and no shadow) and Unije (one bigger village there, few beaches and nice shade).
You can get back to Lošinj by catamaran arriving from Rijeka, it leaves Susak at 8 pm and Ilovik later, it needs almost 1 hr altogether.
Actually you can do round trip by 1 pm boat just seeing the islands and without touching their ground, but I nevertheless suggest you take a break somewhere to swim in some nice lonely beaches.
