Accommodation Lighthouse PalagruzaPalagruza lighthouse was built in 1875 on the island of the same name, placed in the middle of the Adriatic sea, between the Italian and Croatian coasts, 68 NM south of Split and 26 NM south of the island of Lastovo. This island Palagruža of exceptional beauty is Croatia's furthest island. The island itself is 1400 m long, 300 m wide and 90 m high, and is covered in Mediterranean vegetation. Since the lighthouse building is placed in the middle of the island at the height of 90 m, we do not recommend holidays on Palagruza for the elderly or for those with health problems.
There are two four-bed apartments in the spacious lighthouse building. There are two well-kept trails on Palagruza. One of them leads to Stara Vlaka, a pebble bay on the northern side of the island, while the other trail leads to the southern side of Velika Palagruza to Veli Zal, one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic. These pebble beaches are ideal for small children due to shallow waters and fine pebbles.
Transfer to the lighthouse Palagruža is organized from the port in the town of Korcula. Return transfer in a speedboat, takes approximately three hours and costs 600 Euro per apartment. The boat leaves the marina of Korčula very early in the morning. We recommend to those who tend to get seasick to take an anti-nausea pill before departure. Due to Palagruza's distance from the mainland and other islands, provisions cannot be supplied. Before the transfer, we suggest that all provisions be purchased in grocery stores in Korcula. Preparation of meals, including fish that the lighthouse keeper catches himself or buys from other fishermen, can be arranged.
