The oldest evidences of the man’s existence on the island found in the Rača cave are dated to the fourth millennium BC. The excavations in Rača situated in the south-eastern part of the island , near Skrivena luka, revealed a human settlement inhabited from early Stone age till the Roman epoque. The large number of artefacts of the Neolithic Hvar Culture indicate continuous use of Rača over a long “pre-historic” period of time,whereas in the late Bronze Age the cave was probably inhabited only occasionally.
In the cave was found an, even for the east Adriatic area unique,double-bladed razor, round shaped with a cross engraved in the middle.
Rača cave is the only cave on the island in which you can go without fear, it is easy to enter, only bring a flash light !
Nalazi se na južnoj strani otoka Lastova. Jedna je od najvećih i najljepših uvala na otoku. Kao što joj ime govori, skrivena je od pogleda sa otvorenog mora pružajući zaštitu nautičarima od jakog vjetra i uzburkanog mora. Na sredini južne strane otoka Lastova, na morskom ulazu u uvalu Skrivena luka nalazi se rt Struga na kojem je 1839. izgrađen istoimeni svjetionik. Zbog svoje udaljenost od obale djeluje usamljeno, pa se čini kao da uranja u plavetnilo neba i pučine. Svjetionik je smješten na nadmorskoj visini od 90 m, na samom rubu strme litice s koje se pruža izniman pogled na otvoreno more. Prekrasni vidikovci i jednostavan pristup moru kroz borovu šumu sa sjeverne strane svjetionika čine ovu turističko odredište vrlo atraktivnim.
