The Adriatic Sea is a realm of beauty in the heart of Europe and Lošinj is one of its most beautiful destinations. Within easy reach of all major European towns and owing to its specific climate, Lošinj has become widely known as a favourite all-season holiday spot.
Many would think that a destination in this part of the Mediterranean would be attractive only during the summer months, but that is not the case. Lošinj’s weather is pleasant throughout the year. In this lovely marine environment the temperature varies very little, ranging from the average lowest 7.7 °C in February to the highest 23.8 °C in July.
Also, daily fluctuations in the temperature are moderate which is beneficial for health.
Lošinj Island is part of the Cres – Lošinj archipelago, the largest island group in the Croatian Adriatic.
It is the eleventh largest island in the Adriatic Sea. It is 33 km long and its width ranges from 4.75 km in the north and central part to 0.25 km near the town of Mali Lošinj.
The Lošinj archipelago includes the islands of Lošinj, Union, Ilovik, Susak, Vele Srakane, Male Srakane and some 30 smaller islands, islets and rocks.
The highest peak on the island is a wooded hill called Osorščica (588 m). The island hides a peculiar natural phenomenon, a freshwater lake used for supplying drinking water to Lošinj and all of the surrounding islands, which constitutes an attraction of itself.
Cres and Lošinj used to be one island. That was before the artificial canal in Osor was built, probably by the Romans, to divide the islands of Cres (north) and Lošinj (south). The two islands are now connected by a bridge.
The history of the oldest settlements on the islands of Cres and Lošinj (Lubenice, Osor, Beli) dates back more than four millennia and it is known that in the 9th century Osor was the seat of a Roman diocese.
Veli Lošinj was the first major settlement on the island of Lošinj, which is where the town takes its name from (veli = big, great). Today, the town of Veli Lošinj is smaller than Mali Lošinj (mali = small).
Mali Lošinj is the biggest town on the island known for its long tradition in tourism. Even though it is a vivid town, lovely beaches away from the bustle are only a pleasant 15-minute stroll from its centre.
In 1892 by the Decree of the Ministry of Health of the Austro-Hungarian Empire due to its exceptional climate Lošinj was proclaimed a health resort.
For a long time it was one of the favourite health resorts of the Austrian aristocracy.
The island’s picturesque villages, sandy beaches, numerous trails and promenades surrounded by lush vegetation, restaurants and cafés scattered along the shore and comfortable hotels and hospitable people make Lošinj a perfect holiday destination and training at Lošinj Tennis Resorts will help you reach the top of the game.
Lošinj Tennis Resorts tennis courts and other amenities are located near the hotels and surrounded by pine forests and gardens filled with native plants. All the facilities are located in the vicinity of the sea.
