JABUKA volcanic island, lies some 70 km northwest of Komiza on the island of Vis. Due to magnetite that can be found in the black, volcanic rocks on the island, compasses become completely useless in the vicinity of this island. Jabuka is a very large, steep, 97 meter high cliff in the shape of a pyramid. Placed in deep waters, isolated from other islands and channels, Jabuka is exposed to strong winds. Even moderate winds cause large waves on the open sea, therefore one needs a lot of experience and luck to dock on the island. The surrounding waters are rich in fish. Due to the harsh climate, there are only two endemic species: black lizard and the plant Centaurea ("zecina"). Till some 50 years ago, the island was home to an endemic type of carnation, nowadays extinct. The island is both a remarkable and frightening sight during nice weather in summer but in winter, when the winds blow causing large waves, Jabuka turns into a life-threatening adventure.

BOL on island BRAC
The ZLATNI RAT beach spreads to the west of Bol and is one of the biggest and most beautiful natural beaches on the Adriatic. Like a tongue stretching almost half a kilometre into the sea, it grows with the drifting deposits of tiny pebbles, changing its shape depending on the wind and the direction of the waves. Bol is a paradise for surfers because of the favourable wind, which always blows. There is an array of high-class hotel complexes and private apartments along the beach and the coastal promenade.In the vicinity of the town centre are a baroque summer house, castle, parish church and the small square “pjaceta”.On the eastern side, a Dominican monastery, one of the most beautiful in Europe, rises on the Glavici peninsula.Only two hours walk from Bol are sites of exceptional value - the Blaca desert (church and monastery from the 16th century) and Zmajeva spilja (a cave rich in reliefs, and home to Glagolitic priests).
The island of Brač is the highest and third largest island in the Adriatic Sea. The island is well known for its quality stone used to build many palaces. This is the island with the only stone mason school in Croatia.

PALAGRUZA island and lighthouse

PALAGRUZA island is situated 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. Lighthouse was built in 1875. This island 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.

According to church records, Pope Alexander III was on Palagruza on Ash Wednesday, March 9th, 1177. While traveling with his fleet of ten galleys, he was impressed with the archipelago's beauty and decided to make a stop. He was served dinner on a small plateau on the island of Palagruza Mala, that has ever since been called "Papina njiva" (Pope's Field). After its stay on Palagruza, the fleet headed for the island of Vis, then towards Zadar and finally Venice. There is an archeological site on the island Palagruza Velika, while numerous finds bear witness to the fact that Plagruza was the island of the Greek hero Diomedes. The island is a nature reserve with numerous endemic species of flora and fauna.
The surrounding waters are the Adriatic's richest fishing area.
