Island Unije

Unije - the largest of the islands surrounding Lošinj and car free. It was populated through all historical periods due to a favourable geographical and traffic position at the entrance to Kvarner, several sources of fresh water and vast fertile land. 

The northern and eastern sides of the island are steep and rocky, overgrown with evergreen holly oak, while the southern and western sides are flatter and form a bay.

The only settlment on the island is Unije village. In the village, there are several restaurants, patisseries, bakeries, a post office and grocery stores. The northern part of the island is of special ecological value because it is located on the path of migratory birds. Three species of chipmunks and the gray falcon nest on Veli and Mali rocks, which is also the westernmost population of the endemic Illyrian chipmunk. This area is rich in diverse flora and specific vegetation and was proposed for protection as a botanical reserve in the 90s.

If you would like to visit Unije during your sailing holidays you can find a berth in Unije village, which is a wide bay with long breakwater. However, it is extremel dangerous in the bay when there are strong winds from the 3rd and 4th quadrants and during summer squalls. Then you should leave the bay. More protected anchorage bay on the eastern coast of the Unije island is Maračol. The bay is sheltered of all but the strong south-wind Jugo.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, mostly untouched nature, the island of Unije is sailing haven.
