Mali Lošinj (Italian: Lussinpiccolo, Venetian: Lusinpiccolo) is a town and municipality in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, on the island of Lošinj, in western Croatia. At the time of the 2001 census there were 8,388 inhabitants, of whom 83% were Croats. The favorable climatic conditions, the construction of hotels and resorts, foresting and maintenance of beaches have led to an intensive development of tourism. The village is located in the most protected part of the Losinj bay. The town lies mostly on the eastern, sunny side of the island.The town was first mentioned in 1398 under the name Malo selo ("small village"). In 1868 it experienced its golden year.
