      Supplies:

      Provisions can be purchased before taking the ferry in Split or in Vela Luka. Please make sure not to be late for your scheduled transfer. A supply of additional provisions can be arranged with Ante Petkovic at extra charge. Furthermore, sea food can be arranged with Captain Petkovic.

      Interesting to know:
      When choosing a room in the lighthouse, make sure to take the one placed in northeast corner of the first floor of the lighthouse building. At dusk, look for the light signals from the lighthouses Sucuraj on the island of Hvar and Lovisce on Peljesac. Enjoy Plocica and the play of light.

      Underwaters:
      The waters surrounding Plocica are among the most attractive breath-hold (free) diving areas in the Adriatic due to the magnificent underwater landscapes. Sports anglers can catch quite a lot of fish primarily at dawn and late afternoon on the southern and western sides of the island.

      Introduction:
      Plocica lighthouse, built in 1887, is placed on the island of the same name between the islands of Korcula and Hvar, and the Peljesac peninsula.

      Details of the lighthouse:

      The island was named after its interesting shape. Flat and low, it resembles a slate protruding out of the sea. It is one of the most beautiful landscapes on the Adriatic.

      Out of all lighthouses, Plocica, along with Struga, can accommodate the most people (max. of 14) and is perfect for a Robinson Crusoe type of holiday. Plocica does not have a lighthouse keeper and the waters surrounding it are great for diving. The ground and first floor have an area of 165 square meters, while the yard is paved with stone and the tamarisks and century-old fig trees offer shade all day long. A holiday on Plocica would not be the same without the host Ante Petkovic, who used to visit Plocica and help the lighthouse keepers as a child. After the lighthouse was automated, a lighthouse keeper was no longer needed, nevertheless Ante is still attached to Plocica.

      Beaches:

      The rocky seabed on the southern part of the island is completely different to the shallow sea on the northern side and to its sandy lagoon with boat hoist. The beaches are ideal for small children.

      Transfer:

      Bothway transfer for guests to the lighthouse is organized from Prigradica. Price of the transfer is 130 EUR per appartment and it is paid on the spot. Guests are transferred on a fast rubber dinghy. The transfer to Plocica takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending on sea conditions. In case of unfavorable weather conditions or if the number of guests exceeds 7, guests are transferred on a larger boat with cabin. This kind of transfer is slower and takes from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on sea conditions.

      You can reach Prigradica:

      by ferry line Split - Vela Luka and by car to Prigradica (in the direction of Blato until you reach the left turn for Prigradica).
      rom Dubrovnik by car or bus via the Peljesac peninsula to Orebic and then by boat to the island of Korcula. Guests that arrive by car head directly from the town of Korcula to Prigradica on the other side of the island. Guests that arrive by bus get off in Vela Luka, where Ante Petkovic can pick them up if arranged in advance.
      there is also the possibility that Ante Petkovic picks up guests in the town of Korcula. This service is charged 200 KN. Taxi services are also available.

        On Plocice there is absolutely nothing to do and absolutely no entertainment other than Nature and your fellow-travelers. Pitch-dark at night, sunny and hot in daytime. Some awesome thunderstorms and rough sea all around. And the most friendly and supportive host to take you there and back!

        A great place for holiday but not for everyone. For those involved in contemplative practices rather than for the very active ones

        Robinson-type of accommodation, great for people who do not have excessive demands concerning the little comforts of life and want to be in touch with nature. The only place I know where the distance between a gorgeous sunrise and an equally stunning sunset is less than 500 meters! Breathtaking beauty all around. The friendly boatman Tonci is both discrete and takes good care of his guests. Robinsons need to be ready for small discomforts, lack/shortage of hot water, thorny bushes all around and no shop/ no restaurant in sight!
