BOJČIĆ

Bojčić beach is a small beach with a big number of fans. Although the coast is rocky, there is a little pebble part to it which children enjoy very much.

Above the beach is a footpath leading to cafés, children’s playground, shops…. 

BOK

Location: cca 15 min on foot to the  villages  Donje Selo and Gornje Selo, on the island  Susak

Bok beach is kind of a symbol of the island Susak. A big area of sand and shallow water is the ideal choice for families with children. Other than the fun you can have playing in the sand, the sand also has a healing effect so it’s no wonder that it used to be the choice of beach for the Lošinj’s medical  institute in the beginning of the 20th century. Since there is no vegetation nearby, and therefore no shade other than a parasol, sunbathing lovers will enjoy it very much. 


BORIK

Location: Sunčana uvala, cca 1 km from the centre of Mali Lošinj

This pebble and fully equipped beach is the usual choice for families with children due to its easy approach to the sea. A beautiful pebble beach surrounded by flat rocks, ideal for catching those rays, sunbathing throughout the day and ending it with a romantic sunset. While the children are having their fun in the sea or participating in some sport activities, grownups can refresh themselves in the café right above the beach.

ČIKAT BAY

Lazily lying on the beach, you can rest your eyes on a whole spectre of wonderful views, like the islets of Oruda and Palacol, the immense blue, the mountain range of Velebit or, if you’re lucky enough, on a pod of dolphins. Or you can just close your eyes and doze off, warmed by the sun.
