A bit inspired by Pocket Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Not Visited and Never Will I am giving the world some photos from some not-so-remote islands I’ve come across in my travels in this new feature.
Southern Croatia, Dubrovnik to be precise, is where someone dropped the little island of Lokrum into the sea, and its 0.8 square kilometres (or 0.31 sq mile) screams diversity more than a 90’s Benneton ad (apologies for the outdated references).
With everything from an animal kingdom stuffed with peacocks, turtles and the cutest bunnies, to a trip back in time to the crumbling fort atop its stone-laden hillside, topped off with its Dead Sea style lake and its Game Of Thrones sets – there’s a lot to see/do/explore. I could ramble on and on, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking (sadly the pictures won’t write my blog :[ )
Have you been to Lokrum, or any similar little island gems?
