The Forgotten Isle

Lastovo is the forgotten isle. Croatia’s loneliest island hosts 286 households, two ATMs and a pharmacy that opens one hour per day. Secreted in Lastovo’s centre is its semi-abandoned capital. Café tables are hidden by wild fig trees, while yellowing postcards depict deserted bays. Residents aren’t familiar with Anna Wintour or Victoria Beckham. Yet the island’s timeless production of organic vegetables and line-caught seafood never went out of fashion.

Your Guide to Lastovo

Peace. Silence. Harmony.

Lastovo isn’t one island, but 46. The micro-archipelago explodes into unnamed islets populated by geckos and finches. From a drone, these forest green specks appear haloed by topaz sea, which shelves into deep navy. The sardines and squid you can see with a mask and snorkel look good enough to eat - just ask your chef. The 'busiest' island in the Lastovo Archipelago is Susac. Its lighthouse is perfumed by maquis herbs, while its miniature beach is frequented by a flock of sheep.

Distant Land

The 21st century simply hasn’t arrived on Lastovo. That’s because the 10km-long island sits midway between Split and Italy. It was battled over by French, Turks, Brits and Austrians but never made the tourist map. After World War Two, Lastovo became a sealed military base. By day you can kayak inside a submarine pen. By evening you’ll be the sole hiker on 200km of fragrant trails. By night the skies serve an astral light show best seen by telescope. It’s atmospheric, in every sense.

Calm Escape

There’s only one island more off the map than Lastovo. Palagruza is superyacht-only territory. An ultimate Mediterranean escape that welcomes Adriatic dolphins and sea turtles in 170m deep seas. Astonishingly, the Austro-Hungarian Empire constructed a castle-cum-lighthouse on Palagruza’s 110m peak. It was built to shock and awe sailors of yore - a task it still performs today.
