Losinj Island

Life on Losinj offers the classic Mediterranean holiday: gourmet food, chilled Istrian wines, warm clear seas and uncrowded beaches.

The crowds flock to Croatia every summer – but one island has been curiously overlooked.

Once a shipping hub, Losinj Island is now perfectly located for yacht charters, with many small islands nearby and the famous Kornati Labyrinth a short sail away.

Why we like Losinj

With the opening of stylish, exquisite boutique hotels and a scattering of private villas, the tiny island of Losinj is finding its way onto the holiday map – up until now Croatia’s best-kept secret amongst the sailing fraternity.

How to reach Losinj

Losinj is located in the beautiful Kvarner Gulf of Croatia, in the Northern Adriatic and has no airport, a factor that has helped it keep its obscurity. The island is reached by flying to either Rijeka or Krk, followed by a transfer to the port to catch a ferry or catamaran. Getting there is half the fun. Losinj is 20 miles long by two miles wide – lending itself to hiking, biking and windsurfing with many trails crisscrossing the island.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Tom Frost

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.
