Susak is a unique island in the Adriatic both in terms of its origin and appearance.
The island appears on nautical charts very early, first under the Roman name Sansacus or Sansegus. The first mention of the island in written sources dates back to the middle of the 9th century, when the Saracens and the Venetians clashed in its waters.

Most inhabitants live on the island of Susak after the end of II. world war. Since 1985, Susak has been celebrating Emigrants' Day, the last Sunday in July.

The first settlement, whose origins date back to Roman times, originated on a fertile plateau and is called Gornje selo, while Donje selo, located in the port, is more recent, built during the heyday of viticulture in the late 19th century.

Due to its isolation, Susak has preserved its archaic speech (protected as a movable cultural asset), specific customs and picturesque costumes.

I had a fun trip to Susak. I enjoyed the paddle boat trips and then later walked up the hills to the fancy hotels. The views were amazing and the fried shrimps, calamari, and fried fish always made my days better. I would highly recommend it.

Every place that visited in Susak seemed to be so enchanting. Especially a visit to the beaches was pleasant. The sand bathing and swimming in the aqua blue waters was an experience I will never forget.

I had a lovely time as I visited this town. The old Mediterranean houses, the stone streets, and the warm sun made my walks enjoyable. The wine places were perfect to pop in and have a rest.

We visited Susak with some pals of mine and we painted the town. Everything was superfun and the stops at the light houses to admire the views from the top were something else. I recommend this town to all, looking to have fun.

Susak is a very charming town. I loved the churches. The stillness and quietness inside was ideal for praying and enjoying the silence. I left feeling like a new man.

My girlfriend and I stayed in this town for a month and we have never forgotten the experience. We really loved the hotels that we were staying in that were located right next to the sea. It was nice to stargaze at night and enjoy the cool breezes.
