The Cres and Lošinj Archipelago have beaches for every taste, including rocky and pebbled beaches, ones that offer sand and concrete, well-maintained and easily accessible areas, and, of course, the naturally wild and hard-to-reach locations.

The main hotel beaches, Veli Žal and Borik, are pebbled, shallow and child-friendly, divided by layered sheet rocks that act as natural sun loungers. Both beaches offer everything bathers might need, from deckchairs and showers to restaurants and cafe bars.

Those who prefer fine sand beaches should frequent the Bok cove on Susak to enjoy its warm shallow waters. Paržine beach on Ilovik is famous for its coarse sand and shady pine trees and is a favourite among boaters.

Anyone who has ever visited Lubenice on Cres has, with a gasp of admiration, observed the beautiful beach in the Sveti Ivan cove, located deep down below the Lubenice cliffs. This cove is hardly reachable from the mainland and it is best accessible by boat.
