Explore Lastovo by bicycleWay to Hum - the highest peak on LastovoLastovo is a small island - 9.8 km long and only 5.8 km wide, with numerous bays and fields sitting amongst gentle hills. Everyone who appreciates untouched nature, and who wants to spend an active holiday will enjoy the cycling trails and hiking field paths, most of which are marked and criss-cross the entire surface of the island. Wherever you go, at the end of each trail or path you will be left breathless by the beautiful views. Along the way you will inevitably pass some of the 40 or so mediaeval churches.

The best times for such ventures are in spring and early autumn, when it is not so hot and the breeze will cool you.

For the ambitious. Numerous old paved and gravel roads, built in times when the island served as an army base, will greatly enrich your experience of Lastovo. You will have a chance to immerse yourself in traces of rich history left by Greeks, Romans, Slavs, Venetians, Dubrovnik army, Napoleon army, the English, the Italians and the Yugoslavian National Army (JNA). Of course, for this adventure we highly recommend durable shoes.
Hiking trails to the Middle Ages. Nearing the end of laying out hiking paths, we come to old churches and mediaeval buildings. And along the way one can be intoxicated by the scent of Mediterranean herbs: mint, rosemary, sage, laurel St. John's wort...

Fortress of peaceful and safe navigation

The little island of Sušac is about 13 nautical miles away from the west coast of Lastovo. Its south-west coast is steep and harsh, while others are gentle and hilly.

Vegetation is scarce because rainfall is extremely rare - this is most likely how it acquired its name. The sea around Sušac has a transparency of about 30 metres. There are many coves ideal for swimming and diving on the island.

Excursion to SaplunActive holiday. Lastovo is a small island, ideal to be explored on foot, by bicycle or by scooter, which can be rented at all times. Those who love the sea, can take a whole day trip to the sandy island of Saplun in the archipelago of Lastovnjaci, a trip to Mljet, or even further to the remote but extremely attractive Palagruža. Enthusiasts who prefer the sea and fishing can a boat, or attend one of the two diving schools on the island. Everything you need for an active holiday in untouched nature.

Unforgettable Palagruža! The most attractive excursion from Lastovo is certainly a trip to 48km (26NM) remote island of Palagruža. Although it is neither easy or cheap to get there, because one must rent a well-equipped boat with a skilled crew, don't hesitate for a second - it is certainly worth it! It is a trip you will remember forever. The family of Tin Frlan (+385.20.801.164) is the most reliable choice. They have a safe and fast boat, and they are real experts in the secrets of the sea. They will take care of everything - the transport and the food!
