Lastovo is called the imperial Island, the island of dreamlike beauty, preserved landscape, and a unique Carnival tradition. Lastovo abounds in many cultural assets, both tangible and intangible, which testify to its rich past.

On the island of Lastovo, the isle of Emperor, for centuries, the kings and the emperors enjoyed olive oil and aromas of medical herbs.

One of the most interesting assets are the chimneys. On the island, dominant specific family houses dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. Each house carries a trademark, a richly embellished "fumar" (chimney). Even since Dubrovnik Republic times, people from Lastovo competed, whose "fumar" would be better, bigger, different.

Lastovo old town

Lastovo old town is located under high peaks, which form the base of the amphitheatrically shaped settlement. The town consists of medieval family houses full of character dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. Each home is featured with Lastovo's famous trademark chimneys known as Fumari.

Some houses also feature terraces called Sulari, which give a beautiful view of each side of the town. Stone steps or Skalinade branch through the houses and lead to the main church and center. 

Due to defensive reasons, Lastovo was exposed to attacks by pirates and invaders from the sea in the past. To protect the population, a settlement was built on the top of the hill and its inner slopes.

Because of its beautiful bays, pristine shores, and lush vegetation, it is an ideal destination for seafarers. There are several small ports and coastal villages on the island: Pasadur, Ubli, Lučica, Skrivena Luka, Zaklopatica.

Lučica

Lučica Bay is a protected historical site with a charming atmosphere. It was initially a fishing village, with 30 houses used for storing fishing equipment. The bay is encompassed by a beautiful stone promenade which provides a panorama view of Korčula, and given its size, it only allows for smaller boats to enter.

Lučica has become a hit among traveling families,  with its easy access to the sea – ideal for smaller children – and shade or sunshine options depending on one's preference. Lučica is an easy location to reach on foot or by car, just 1 kilometer from the center of the island.

Zaklopatica

Zaklopatica bay is located on the north coast of the island, just 2,5 km from the center of the island. Thanks to its excellent location, excellent gastronomic offer, and facilities for boaters, Zaklopatica is one of the most popular sailing destinations in this part of the Adriatic.

Skrivena Luka

One of the Lastovo`s largest and most beautiful bays is Skrivena Luka, located on the island`s southern coast.

In the middle of the south side of the island of Lastovo, at the sea entrance to the bay Skrivena Luka, there is Cape Struga, where the lighthouse of the same name was built in 1839. Due to its distance from the shore, it seems lonely, so it seems as if it is immersed in the blue of the sky and the open sea. The lighthouse is located at an altitude of 90 m, on the edge of a steep cliff with a beautiful view of the open sea.

Beautiful viewpoints and easy access to the sea through the pine forest on the north side of the lighthouse make this location very attractive.
