Right at the supermarket Super-Konzum there’s a bistro called bistro Vema in which you can have a nice lunch for cheep buck.
If you aren’t planing to go shopping you can have lunch at any of the many bistros and restaurants in the port (the prices are a bit higher though).
If after you’re finished with parking your vehicle, buying tickets and boarding the ship you still have some spare time before the ship leaves, there a couple of options to keep you busy.
The city center is an open market where you can buy all kinds of souvenirs, ranging from authentic handmade ones to cheep chinese junk. There a lot of cafés, ice-cream parlors and a few restaurants. The center is the best place to have a cold drink and relax in the shade, while watching people strolling by, ships gently rocking…
Most of the low to mid-range restaurants are located in the back alleys. Their offer ranges from seafood (deep fried anchovy, calamari etc) to grilled meet. Take a stroll and you’ll probably find something which suites you taste.
On the other hand if you want to take a swim, the best option is to go to Sunčana uvala (sunny bay). To get there you will need to use your car, since it’s a bit far from the center. In case you had enough of driving, or haven’t arrived to Mali Lošinj by car, there’s another small beach which can be reached by foot. Walk to the the opposite side of the harbor all the way to the INA petrol station. Then follow the road which runs left uphill. When you reach the top, go right and just follow the road. It will take you again downhill to this beech.
