Reviews of Lastovo

Like Vis, Lastovo is one of the most isolated islands in Croatia and home to a particularly rich range of wildlife.

My suggestion:
If you are lucky enough to have a pleasure cruiser available or have have the possibility of hiring one, you will be able to explore the neighbouring archipelago and its 46 islets.

Like the island of Vis, Lastovo was formerly off limits to foreign visitors due to its use as an off-shore military base up until 1989. You can still feel the effects of this today as Lestovo remains a very secret, little-known island well off the beaten track. Lastovo is a paradise for tourists, walkers and divers, and I spent an incredible week here enjoying a sense of peace, tranquility and isolation that I did not experience on any other Croatian island.

The town of Lastovo itself is without a doubt the place to stay here, surrounded by a labyrinth of steep little medieval streets that seem to cling to the hillside, creating the impression that the town sits extending along the slopes like a vineyard. Lastovo is a little-known destination that should definitely be on the itinerary of anyone visiting Croatia.
