Historiogeographical determinants of the development of the Lavdara Island situated in the Zadar archipelago (South Croatia), are primarily the subject of the paper. The author elaborates its geographical characteristics, some natural-geographical properties (relief, climate, waters, speleological objects etc.), but the most of his attention is paid to the interpretation of the archives concerning the island, which is of a great advantage for a valuable historiogeographical retrospect of this small island that belongs to the cadastral commune of Sali (Dugi otok island), and evaluation of the same. The paper is an example of microgeographical and historical analysis of economic possibilities of exploiting the island (quarrying, farming, cattle-breeding).
