Lastovo Island and Hidden Bay

Lastovo is an island in south Dalmatia and also the furthest inhabited Croatian island. For its untouched and extremely beautiful nature, it is the best choice for those who want to spend a completely relaxing and peaceful holiday. Its surrounding archipelago includes 46 islands spread across 200km of land and sea. Seventy percent covered by lush forest, washed by the cleanest sea in the Med, the Lastovo islands have been proclaimed a Croatian Nature Park.

The inland main village, also called Lastovo, sits picturesquely on a steep hill, and dotted around the island are small protected bays, popular with visitors to the island including Pasadur, Zaklopatica and Skrivena luka (Eng. Hidden Bay), where the perfectly clear and lake-like water provides perfect conditions for swimming, snorkeling & kayaking.

Skrivena luka, also a village, is a small bay on the southern coast of the island of Lastovo. It is so secluded that it is not possible to see it from the open seas. The cape Struga that forms the eastern part of Skrivena Luka has a lighthouse dating back to 1839, one of the oldest lighthouses in the Adriatic.

There are number of well-marked cycling and walking paths across the island through the forests and vineyards, where you will appreciate the natural beauty of the island. There are two scuba diving centers on Lastovo with opportunities for professional and novice divers to explore the sea creatures and plants below and visit ship wrecks.

For a tasty meal, walk to Zaklopatica and the cozy family restaurant at Triton.
