Lastovo Island

Lastovo is one of Croatia’s most remote and undeveloped islands. It is quite isolated, positioned south of Korcula and west of Mljet. Every year, visitors flock to Lastova Town- home to a striking collection of stone houses and aged churches that cling to the island’s hillside.

Along with dozens of smaller surrounding islets, Lastova is protected by the Lastova Archipelago Nature Park. It is famous for its crystal-clear waters that house sea corals, sponges, lobsters, rare sea snails, dolphins, and even green turtles.

Now that it is open for business, Lastova has become a popular destination for clued-up yachties who moor in its blissful bays.

You will see

While exploring Lastovo, you will discover hidden coves, isolated beaches, beautiful bays and the oldest lighthouse in the country. There is also a huge area of forest home to an abundance of local wildlife meaning it has been labelled a protected natural park.

In the middle of the southern side of the island of Lastovo, at the entrance to the bay of Skrivena Luka, lies the Cape of Struga. Here, the lighthouse of the same name was built in 1839 and is open all year long.

At the bottom of the lighthouse driveway, visitors are invited to swim. Furthermore, you can also go swimming on the splendid rocky beaches in some of the numerous secluded bays with shallow waters.
