Lighthouse Glavat


Glavat lighthouse is located on the easternmost island of the Lastovo archipelago. Its distance from Lastovo is 9 nautical miles to the east, and its distance from Korčula 12 nautical miles to the south. The Glavat lighthouse began operating in 1884. The building of the lighthouse represents one of the larger lighthouse facilities on the Croatian side of the Adriatic. Its surface is 220 square meters, with 60 square meters of usable attic space.
The lighthouse has a water cistern, and the lighthouse signaling system receives electricity from batteries charged by solar panels and converters. The light chamber is located at 45 meters above sea level, dominating the archipelago at night. With its many caves and stone blocks, the undersea environment around the lighthouse is very attractive for divers.
