Heart-shaped Croatian island attracts curious, lovebirds
According to the Daily Mail, Croatia's coast is also home to another unintentionally romantic destination - a heart-shaped island recently highlighted on Google Maps. Though the island is uninhabited, tourists have recently caught on and have been clamoring for access. The island's owners, overwhelmed by requests to visit, have renamed the small landmass as "Lover's Island" to capitalize on the demand. I guess the original name, Galesnjak, didn't exactly roll off the tongue...
As romantic as it may sound to head off to this remote heart-shaped landmass, take note - the island has no buildings and no access to fresh water. February temperatures are also hovering in the high 30's. Still for some, access to one of the world's more remote destinations (and with a theme to boot!) is powerful motivation. I guess when it comes to love, emotion sometimes trumps proper logic.
