Lastovo

Lying to the south of Korcula, the tiny island of Lastovo sits at the centre of an archipelago of forty five uninhabited islets. Isolated Lastovo was out of bounds to foreigners for many years and remains charmingly unspoilt by tourism. Even today the densely wooded and stunningly beautiful island has only eight hundred inhabitants.

The main settlement on the island is the amphitheatrically-shaped Lastovo Town which has two fine churches with richly decorated interiors dating from the 15th and 16th centuries and a French fort built in 1810. The town is a maze of narrow streets and flights of steps that wend their way between the old houses which are notable for their unusual chimneys shaped like miniature minarets. There are three main anchorages where you can make a stopover on your Lastovo yacht charter.

There is a bus up to the town of Lastovo from the ferry port at Ubli or, if you’re feeling energetic, you can walk up from either Skrivena Luka, a deep bay backed by sandy hills where there are places to swim or the small harbour of Uvala Zaklopatica. Ubli has a dive shop and a few restaurants, as does Zaklopatica. You can expect great grilled fish wherever you go.

 

Mooring:

  • There is a small marina at the far north-east end of Luka Velji Lago at Ubli where pick up lines are provided .
  • At Skrivena Luka, anchor in 10 – 12 metres (32 – 39 feet). The bottom is mud covered with weed and offers good holding.
  • At Zaklopatica, there’s a mini-marina run by the Augusta Insula restaurant and pick-up lines offered by the others.
