Say "Yes" to holidays far from the maddening crowd - sunshine, the blue waters of the Adriatic sea, silky sands, rich wine and fresh fish… no cars and hotels… this is Your dream island - Susak.
The island of Susak is situated in the Northern Adriatic, some 10 miles southeast from the island of Losinj.
This wonderful natural phenomenon was created by the river Po which kept depositing its sands on the rocky surface of the island for thousand and thousands of years. The sandy cascades are home to its famous reed.
The island was appreciated by the Romans already for its excellent wines, hidden sandy bays, pristine clear waters and sands used for medicinal purposes. Tourism flourished during the Austro-Hungarian reign when doctor Hojs organized a health spa in the Bay of Bok.
