Lastovo Island

The small, mountainous island Lastovo - only nine kilometers long and up to five miles wide – seems to be the "end of the world". The natural, charming gem is the farthest island from the mainland in Croatia. Visitors will find a still unspoiled nature and an amazing calm here- ideal conditions for a relaxing holiday in an idyllic landscape.


Unique Landscape- in the Middle of the Adriatic

Lastovo is the largest island in an archipelago of a total of about 46 smaller islands and cays. Since 2007 the entire island group has been put under protected because of their valuable and sensitive flora and fauna. The Lastovo Nature Park is one of 12 in Croatia. The island of Lastovo is mainly covered by dense, green forests and offers ideal conditions for the cultivation of fruit and vegetables. In addition to agriculture, rural fishing and tourism are among the main sources of income for the locals. The rich fishing grounds ensure that visitors can enjoy delicious, freshly prepared specialties straight from the sea to the restaurants- and together with the excellent Croatian wines, you will have a real treat. Snorkelers and divers can come on their own and explore the magical underwater world in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic.
