Unije – A small island for a big holiday
Although small, with only one inhabited village, the island Unije attracts more and more tourists each year. The reason for this are the cultural-historical sites, beautiful beaches and walking trails, preserved nature, exquisite hospitality, good infrastructure and the absence of cars and crowds.

By its surface it is the largest of the islands surrounding the Island of Lošinj and thanks to the good position at the entrance to Kvarner, the natural sources of drinking water and the fruitful soil, Unije has been inhabited for a very long time.

Proof that it has been inhabited since ancient history comes in the numerous archaeological findings on land and the waters surrounding the island. A good example is the remains of a Roman villa. The waters surrounding the island have always been the crossroads of nautical trails that lead from Istria towards Dalmatia and deeper into the Kvarner bay.

Because of the large number of cliffs and reefs scattered around the island it is not a surprising fact that many lost their lives while their boats sank.

The remains of such a shipwreck can be seen at the entry to the port of Unije.
On the island there is only one village that bears the same name as the island. It is located in the west part of the island, famous for its olive-groves, where it is protected from winds.

It has a few restaurants, a patisserie, a bakery, a post office and a grocery shop. Accommodation (rooms and apartments) can be sought in the local houses with their characteristic wide gable-fronted houses.

There is also a small airport on the island, 30 km from the airport in Pula and 8 km from the one in Lošinj.

A regular boat line connects the island with Lošinj while a few times a week it is possible to reach Rijeka by a catamaran.
