About Palagruža lighthouse
In the middle of the Adriatic sea, between the Croatian and Italian coast, lies Croatia's furthest island - Palagruža.
On this island of exceptional beauty, located 68 NM south of Split and 26 NM south of island Lastovo, the Palagruža lighthouse was built in 1875..
Covered in Mediterranean vegetation the island is 1400 m long and 300 m wide.
Placed in the middle of the island at the height of 90 m, the lighthouse building provides accommodation in two 4-bed apartments.
There are two well-kept trails on Palagruža. One of them leads to Stara Vlaka, a pebble bay on the northern side of the island. The other one leads to the southern side of Velika Palagruža to Veli Žal - one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic. Due to shallow waters and fine pebbles, these beaches are suitable for children.

Since the lighthouse building is placed in the middle of the island at the height of 90 m, we do not recommend holidays on Palagruža for the elderly or for those with health problems.
Transfer to the lighthouse with a speedboat is organized from the port in the town of Korčula (island of Korčula) and takes approximately three hours. We recommend to those who tend to get seasick to take an anti-nausea pill before departure. Since Palagruža is placed in the open sea and even during hot summer days access to the island can be difficult due to waves, it is important to follow the scheduled transfer time. Please make sure to purchase groceries on time. The transfer to the island is very interesting because the speedboat passes through Lastovo channel and by numerous cliffs and islets near the island of Sušac where it occasionally makes a stop-over to deliver provisions to the lighthouse keeper before reaching Palagruža.
On request, it is also possible to organize a transfer directly from Split airport to the lighthouse.
Food and beverages
Due to Palagruža'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 Korčula. Preparation of meals, including fish that the lighthouse keeper catches himself or buys from other fishermen, can be arranged.
