Croatia Question: Korcula or Lastovo?

Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for your advice! We are a group of 7, three generations of a family ranging in age from 75 to 4, who will be spending 2.5 weeks in Slovenia and Croatia late July and early August. We have a 3 night stretch which we will either spend on Korcula or Lastovo and I am looking for feedback on how these islands compare. Specific questions:

1. We know August is high season, but which of these islands will be more crowded? Any chance of some peace on either one?

2. We do not need sandy beaches but would like a good place to swim that is safe for children. Which island is better for that?

3. We will then be going on to Dubrovnik. While we see the catamaran is an option from either island (we'll be departing on a Thursday) we've received advice that this is a little risky as you cannot get advance reservations and we dont want to be closed out. We have found an option for a private transfer Korcula - Dubrovnik. Does anyone know if a similar service exists for Lastovo?

4. Any other pros and cons for these two islands would be great. We just want to relax (the rest of our trip is mostly in cities, so this is our "chill out" time). We have no interest in nightlife or a "scene"...just looking for beautiful surroundings, as quiet as possible but with decent transit connections.

Thank you!
