EXCURSION TO PALAGRUŽA
Palagruža is an island 42 nautical miles away from Komiža, and since it is an island completely exposed to the sea and winds, stable weather is necessary for this excursion. We set off by a motor boat in the early morning hours, and in an hour and a half we will already find ourselves in the heart of the Adriatic, on the furthermost Croatian island of exceptional beauty and rich history. 1400 metres long, 300 metres wide and 90 meters high, Palagruža is the largest island of the Palagruža archipelago. On Palagruža there is an archaeological site and findings have proven Palagruža was the island of the Greek hero Diomedes. The island is a nature reserve with plant and animal endemic species.On Diomedes’s island, along with a visit to the largest lighthouse on the Adriatic, you will find out everything about the rich history of this open-sea island and hear some of the most interesting fishermen stories.
Return to Komiža in the afternoon hours.
