Island Srakane | Mediteran Agency

West of Lošinj between Unije and Susak there are two small islands – Vele and Male Srakane. The larger of the two as the name suggests, Vele Srakane, is north of Male Srakane and south of the island of Unije.Vele Srakane is 2.5 km long, surface area is 1.2 km2. On the look-out hill of Vela, 60 m above sea level, there is a prehistoric hill-fort. The old citadel is the remains of a semi-circular wall of a former fortress which was used as a defence against sea raiders. In a corner of Skrivanić's house, there is a tombstone from Roman times.
There is not a single harbour along the coast and on a small pier in Gornja Trata bay the boat from Mali Lošinj lands.In Vele Srakane is a church dedicated to St. Ann and in Male Srakane a church dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and these feastdays are the only days when the parish priests from Susak and Ćunj come to say Mass.Arriving in Vele Srakane you leave civilisation behind. You cannot use your car on the island. Srakane is connected by ship with Mali Lošinj and in order for the ship to land at Srakane you must warn the ship offers loud and clear in advance.
There are no shops on the island so all provisions, including water, have to be taken with you. There are altogether 8 people who live on the island outside the tourist season. Then complete peace reigns.Srakane offers diversity and peace of a slightly deserted place which only comes alive in the summer months.
