No Fear. It is important to point out to all the tourists and travelers on the island that Lastovo has no dangerous and poisonous animals. This also includes poisonous spiders, such as the infamous “black widow”, which is so frequently found on rocky shoreline areas. If you do see a snake, do not worry. The only snakes on the island are the non-poisonous “grass snakes” (lat. Natrix natrix, recognized by the white spot on the head).  You can therefore walk freely through the beautiful fields or lay in the shade of pine trees.
   
Lučica - sliding

Lučica is a small village/port with only 30 houses and is protected as an area of heritage. Originally, Lučica was a fisherman’s port and buildings were used as storage for fishing equipment. Lučica is just one kilometre from the town of Lastovo. You can reach it by an asphalt road or – there is 400m long short cut through the forest.

 

 

Lučica - protected by law

Mediterranean Architecture. It has been forbidden to build any new buildings in Lučica. Therefore, existing houses have been retro-fitted according to traditional Mediterranean architecture. For visitors, Lučica is a private, protected, peaceful and above all a joyful place, not damaged by modern concrete buildings and with rich vegetation.

 Lučica – view towards the sea 

Pristine and peaceful. The waterfront is made from stone, looking towards the island of Korčula, and the port is big enough just for small motor and sailing boats. This is a benefit for tourists, since they can swim without fear of pollution, fast motorboats or crowds.
