The island of Cres in Croatia is the northern island of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago. With a surface area of 405 km2, Cres is the second largest island of the Croatian Adriatic, after Krk. Especially in the west and south there are beautiful bays and beaches along the 248 km long coastline. The coasts in the north and east consist of steep cliffs. The southern-most part of Cres is connected to the northern point of Lošinj by a small movable bridge. With a length of 31 km this island is the second largest island in the archipelago. Losinj has an erratic coastline with numerous bays and crystal clear sea, and is therefore a true paradise for boating enthusiasts. There are many dolphins in the waters around Lošinj. Chances are that you will meet them on a boat trip to one of the surrounding islands. The waters around Lošinj have therefore been declared a dolphin conservation area.
