Croatia: Find Solitude
If you’re in the depths of breakup despair, sometimes you
need to be by yourself. Croatia’s craggy Adriatic coastline is the perfect
spot: it’s dotted with old lighthouses, which the government began renting out
to tourists in 2000. The keepers are often your sole company at these isolated
beacons, many of which are accessible only by boat. Décor tends toward the
spartan, but there’s a certain gothic romanticism to the moaning winds and the
storied histories of local shipwrecks.
Heartbreak Hotel: Plovput, Croatia’s national
lighthouse authority, rents lighthouses through lighthouses-croatia.com,
starting at $299 per week. The most remote is Palagruza, a three-hour boat ride
from the southern island of Korcula.
