Veli Losinj Things to Do

    This area is a paradise for those who are fond of active holidays. Lots of possibilities for all kind of sports, but here I am to write about footpaths. There are lots of paths along the sea - the sea promenades. The sea-promenades are suitable for the widest circle of walkers.They lead along the island’s shores, bays and coves and through hundred-year-old pine forests.A walk along Čikat Cove, where Lošinj’s ladies used to wait for their seamen to return home, past beautiful villas of Austrian nobility, will remind you strongly of the past.On the other side of the island (15 minutes walk )a sea-promenade connects Mali and Veli Lošinj.I recommend all the visitors of the island to take a walk to Veli Lošinj, the first island settlement, which used to be a winter climatic health resort in Austro-Hungarian empire. For hikers there is a hiking trail to Osorsica, the peak above Osor ( 588m ). From Losinj it is about 5 hours walk to get there, but I recommend a climb from Osor or Nerezine, it would take you about an hour to reach the top. And then: enjoy the view!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Marina" lies on a beautiful location just by the sea in the very center of Veli Losinj. Menu is international with some local specialities. As soon as we took place at the table the tipical dalmatian waiter with mustaches came to clean the table although it had been already spotless.We ordered a "crni rižoto"( a cuttlefish risotto) which had been outstanding. But at first we got an apetizer - bruschettas ( grilled ) with tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and a drop of "acceto balsamico". Njami! Unfortunately we had beer instead of some local wine. But anyway - it was almost a perfect meal!

    Favorite Dish: Cuttlefish risotto, bruschettes
