The islands of Ilovik and Sveti Petar are located south of the island of Lošinj, and the Ilovik Gate separates them. The island of Ilovik has an area of 5.8 km2 and there is only one village of the same name. The coast is easily accessible from all sides, with many gentle bays. The largest bay with a sandy beach is Paržine on the island's southeast side. On the island, you will find a shop, post office, bakery, pastry shop, and several quality restaurants.
Between the two islands stretches a channel 2.5 km long and 300 meters wide. Its waters are naturally protected from all winds, except to some extent from the south, and can provide a safe stay for yachts and small boats. Due to its position on the northern and central Adriatic border, it is very suitable for overnight stays. It's just a few hours of sailing from Istria, Krk, Rab, Pag, Kornati, and other central Dalmatian destinations.
The islands are overgrown with Mediterranean vegetation. All over the place, you will find a variety of flowers, colorful oleanders, palm trees, and two-hundred-year-old eucalyptus trees, after which Ilovik is often called "Flower Island".
Ilovik is connected to Lošinj daily by boat line via Mrtvaška bay and by fast ferry line to Rijeka. During the summer, daily excursion boats depart from Mali and Veli Lošinj to Ilovik.
