Ilovik and Sveti Petar are two islands that can be found to the south of the island of Losinj and are separated from it by the narrow strait known as "Ilovaska vrata". Flower Island is a nickname given to the island because of the abundant vegetation found there, which includes palm trees, oleander bushes, and eucalyptus trees. The small namesake village of Ilovik, the sole town on the island, is distinguished by its vivid colours, charming stone houses, and lengthy fishing history.
The island's southern side is home to some of the island's most picturesque landscapes, in addition to many remote bays. Among these bays, Parzine Bay stands out not only because of its natural beauty but also because it was the site where the remnants of ancient ship wreckage were found.
The harbour located between Ilovik and Sveti Petar has been utilised as a secure anchorage since ancient times due to its geographic location of the port. On the island of Ilovik, there is a permanent population of about one hundred people. The majority of them earn a living by catching fish and tourism.
