Uvala Luka: Fishing boats wait their next trip in this rather functional looking village

If you want to see what a Croatian fishing village looked like before the tourists came, Vrgada is probably pretty close.

Uvala Luka is the small harbour of this fishing community on this small one village island. The island is covered with pine trees and has several pebbled beaches.

Originally a fortress island (the ruins of the fort are still visible), the village is now reliant on fishing, a few visitors from the mainland, and passing yachtsmen.

It’s a rather functional looking place with few concessions to tourism – a couple of restaurants and basic provisions are about all that’s on offer. Which is really the attraction.
