The 130,000 square yard islet of Galesnjak came to prominence after its unusual shape was highlighted on Google Earth.

 Even the owner of the uninhabited island - now known as Lovers' Island - didn't realise how perfectly heart-shaped the island off the Croatian coast was until he was swamped with requests from couples to stay there.

 It seems many lovers from around the world consider it the ideal spot for a romantic Valentine's Day break.

 Vlado Juresko said: "It has been incredible. We think it is the most perfect heart-shaped island in the world. Nobody lives there so if lovers really do want to spend time alone it's the perfect desert island.

 "We always thought it looked a bit like a heart but since it's been on Google Earth everyone else has seen it too and the whole world seems to want to stay here."

 The island is located in Zadarski Kanal between Zadar and the Island of Pasman.

 Croatia is ranked as the 18th most popular tourism destination in the world, proving especially busy during the summer months.
