The Distant Islands of Croatia: Jabuka

Total Croatia News

With more than a thousand islands in the Adriatic, there is plenty of choice for sailors and tourists alike, but one island that very few people get near is the last island before Italian waters – Jabuka. 

Jabuka means ‘apple’ in Croatian, and the forbidding 97m cliffs are not the only reason the small island gets so few visitors. All sea lanes avoid the island, because its magnetic form confuses compasses. The island has some protected plants and was declared a geological monument of nature in 1958.
