In the port of Veli Losinj go to its east end. The way starting between a souvenir shop and a shop for swimming accessories is the right one. At the white church go right the small way along the church, on and cross the main street of Veli Losinj to a small chapel.

More tips:

When you come from direction west to the port of Veli Losinj and then turn around almost 180 degrees, you can see a fish restaurant. behind the fish restaurant there is a pizza restaurant with very good pizza :)

In the port of Mali Losinj, the first retaurants advertise a discount of 30 - 50%. Tourists told me that the discount is already woven into the menu. Because of that, we always went further to one of the cafes with no discount advertisement.
