Hi everyone,
I hope you are doing good.
I want to start a discussion :)
First of all, I'm from Croatia, and I'm 29 years old. I'm an entrepreneur, and when my dad died in 2018, I went from being dad's son to a man that needs to handle a couple of businesses.

My family owns a big piece of land on an island named Žut, which is near National Park Kornati and close to the place where I'm from, Murter. ( see the attachment)
On that island, many families own land and what they do is this: either they have a restaurant or rent a house. That is it. Some of them have sheep and do agriculture of some sort.

So, I was thinking a lot about this and what to do with my land, because now I'm just losing money there. We also have a house there, right next to the sea, which is beautiful. This year I will rent it, to get some money and cover all the expenses. But that is just a temporary solution, you know. I mean, we have around 50 acres over there, and I want to use it all, not just one tiny bit.

Obviously, there are lows where you can build something, and on my land, there are two places. So that is good.

Why I'm asking this here? Here, there are people all over the world who know so much more than I do and have seen a lot of crazy ideas and concepts that work. That is why.

So please, if you have ideas, questions, or anything that can help me, let me know :)

Create an instagram hotspot where you promote it as an all inclusive area where influencers pay you money and you have a cheap camera crew on hand to snap pictures.

Drum it up as the one place no one has ever been to - stick a huge price tag on the secrets of Croatians most exclusive island where only millionaires go add in some copy about Croatias very own love island.. picture some hunks that you photo-shopped on the cheap and one of these influencers with more money than sense will bite - easy money then you can do what you want :).

I can already tell the building restrictions you have on the lot. The idea to make this some kind of tourism hotspot is extremely unlikely. Its also super expensive.

If you have some kind of building permission I think some really low cost but super cool huts that people would love to escape to on Airbnb. These unique placse have the best reviews and are mostly booked out on airbnb.

I would love the retreat option

Regularly ferty boats?
You could build a wide Motocross track and have infrastructure for bikers.
What about Regulation here?

Yea, if I would go and build something, it would be super expensive. But huts are a good idea, and I wouldn't need any particular permit for that. So that is good.

No ferry, unfortunately.
I was watching Grand Tour the other day and I was just thinking the same thing. race track. That could work.
Regulation. I need to check but I think that is no problem.

If I had this property I'd create a cannabis resort and incorporate facets of the Instagram idea a few posts up. This place would be packed! Shame weed probably illegal as balls in that part of the world.

If there is weed, babes and access to The Fast Lane forum Id be game to stay in that prison.

But serious, weed tourism is becoming a huge thing and with the ability to have a farm and a resort with multi income streams and also social media possibilities to generate more income, this is a winner. Its happening in the state Im in and the first to get Mike Tyson weed resort media coverage coupled with awesome service, amenities and are solid players are gonna rake in.

I visited Croatia 3 or 4 years ago in the winter instead of summer as one might expect. I've never seen a more beautiful sunset. I seem to recall that Catamarans were a big thing there. Capitalize on rich Foreigners who want to summer in Croatia. They like drinking, partying, and feeling important.

You will never get a weed ...there.

The EU is subsiding big projects.
In Greece for example they subsided a Gulf area with awful amounts of money.
This gulf resort destroys the area because they need all th water now adn dont bring money to the country, only the investors.
(BTW: if you like gulf, its a nice area ((36.9961255, 21.6510279)KLX, helicopter to resort possible )

Ask the right lawyer, what you could do there to get a ridiculous amount of EU subventions!

Maybe you can get money to do NOTHING there!

You have to come by boat. I mean, you could build a place to land a helicopter. And then when they come, we have already built some roads so you could drive a car. And we would need to build more roads.

I thought the same but weed is, for now, illegal in Croatia.

I like that idea, A LOT, haha. Maybe in the future, when weed is legal to grow in Croatia. We can organize the Fast Lane forum annual meeting there haha

I was talking to my friend about this, the EU subventions. That is a good idea; I will look into that more. Thanks

Hi! That's a big property with some goldmines like those two seashores, do they have sand beaches? In Croatia is all rocky right? Still, if you want tourism those are great locations for that. Also, try to get a permit to dig a road, you could build a fun off-road track for 4x4 motos/cars from one shore to the other, that would be a cool tourist attraction, not to say all the other fun sea activities you could come up with, + rental vacation property or something.

You can also profit from SCALE, because the property is huge.

I couldn't see very well, are those lands rocky/hilly? I would divide the property in several areas and plant different cultures on them, timber, fruit trees, etc. Invest in forest and agriculture businesses, you have space for it.

Just start cheap and see how it goes, then grow. Start by getting an excavator.

Hi!
On one side there is a beach, on the other are rocks. In Croatia, all is pretty much rocky.
We already have one road, and we could easily dig more roads.
The land is rocky, and there is a hill, but when you come up, it is straight.
Maybe connect tourism and agriculture.

Hopefully within five years that would happen. I used to live in a small town in So Cal that had resorts and there were a ton of Croatian dudes they imported to work at the resorts and their mission in life was to smoke weed and play basketball and poker. That is one Fast Lane forum meeting I will attend!

I love Croatia and i spend some weeks a year there.
You get weed for sure. But believe me. In the next 20 years thats no LEGAL way to make money.

Nice, never been and while my 5 years may be a little ambitious, a low level medical system looks like its legal in the country and that is also a good starting point. Cannabis will be federally legal in the states soon enough and is a cash crop, other countries will crumble fast once the economical and medical benefits are more clear.
