Brač Island also has interesting leftovers from ex Yugoslavian army. There are underground docks for submarines and battleships.

The docks are usually nicely masked with rocks with artificial rocks. You can dock there with larger sailboats and even go into the underground dock on foot or with your dinghy. The depth in the dock is usually about 5-6 meters. And it is about 8 meters wide.

The sailboat on the photo is Bavaria 36.

When you moor at Veli Lago in front of Solitudo hotel there are adverts for taxi cabs. We called one and the nice man took us on a joyride all over Lastovo Island.

We drove to the helipad at the Pleševo brdo (415 m above sea level) where nice view towards Skrivena luka and Struga lighthouse opens up. In good visibility Lastovnjaci and Vrhovnjaci Islands are visible towards Mljet Island as well. Towards west Bratin, Vlašnik, Kopište and Sušac Islands are visible.

Next we went to the town Lastovo, which is situated above Sv. Mihajlo port on NE coast of Lastovo Island. On the way Zaklopatica is nicely visible from the viewpoint by the road.

In Zaklopatica (last photo) there are a couple of good restaurants or so i heard from friends. I haven’t tried one yet.

Saplunara Bay is situated on the SW side of Mljet Island and it is very popular anchorage for those who sail southern Dalmatia. Saplunara is well known for its nice beach and Blaca lagoon just SE of Saplunara.

Saplunara is well protected from bora (NE) and pretty ok protected from SE – jugo but totally open towards south and SW so check the forecast before spending the night there.

Blaca is an interesting lagoon SE from Saplunara. If you go there by a sail boat you have to anchor in front of the entrance, because it is very shallow. You can then go into the lagoon with your dinghy and bath in the warm water. The depth in the lagoon is around 0.5 meters.

We climbed on the highest top at Smokvica Vela Island at Kornati National Park. The view is fantastic; you can see the whole Kornati archipelago. I strongly recommend visiting the island and climbing the hill which is not that difficult.

If you come from SE side I recommend mooring in front of Mare restaurant and climb the hill from there. You can get a bite to eat in the restaurant in you find it too exhausting.

Telašćica is always fun to visit and if you enjoy nice view I recommend taking a 10 minute trip to the cliffs and Mir Lake.

The stroll is nice and short if you don’t decide to go further along the edge of the cliffs. The path is nice, but do wear good shoes, because at some points the rocks are razor sharp.

If you come by a boat, the buoys are free of charge because each visitor pays entrance fee of 60 kn per person. Surprisingly not all the buoys were taken.

There are lots of donkeys there. They are your main hosts feeling quite at home there and they don’t let themselves be bothered by tourists.

You can stock up with fresh fruit and veggies and schnaps at Toni’s supermarket and Market Janko – both shops are floating (boat shops).

Experience taught me that bringing good shoes along on a sailing trip is worth wile.

One cannot only sit in the cockpit of a boat and occasionally jump in the water – that becomes boring, so we try and climb the islands we stop at and the view is usually rewarding.

This time we climbed on both hilltops on Levrnaka Island. We dropped anchor in Lojena Bay on SW side of Levrnaka which is well known as one of the most beautiful beaches on Adriatic. If you’re wondering why, check out the photos.

The view is fantastic to all sides. Towards NW you can see nearby islands Aba Vela and Aba Mala, and even part of Katina Island which is situated between Mala and Vela Proversa – the northern entrances to Kornati National Park. You can also see Sestrica Island where one of the nicest lighthouses on Adriatic is and Šilo Velo and Šilo Malo Islands.

Towards SE you can see all the way to the 126 m high hilltop at Piškera, where ACI marina Piškera is and Mana Island with its ruins that remained from a film shoot in the 70-ies.

In short it’s worth a bit of sweat to enjoy the nice view.

When sailing around Vis Island Green Cave is a nice place to see.

It is a cave with two entrances, connected by a stone pillar. There is a hole in the ceiling of the cave, through which sunlight comes in illuminating it bright green.

Green Cave on Ravnik Island is not as well hidden as Blue Cave on Biševo Island and not as famous as the Blue Cave. There is no problem getting in the cave with the dinghy but it is not as fascinating as in Blue Cave.
Still, it is worth stopping by when sailing by.

Stiniva Bay – a must see

Stiniva is a bay, you can easily overlook if sailing too far off the coast.

Solid cliffs on every side, around 15 meters depth in front of the entrance where most boats anchor and a beautiful pebble beach inside.

In the middle of the cliffs there is an entrance through which only smaller boats can sail.

There is a small "konoba" (a small restaurant/bar) right on the beach and you can get a cold beer there and they even grilled lamb and fish when we were there.

When anchoring there a little warning: seabed is rock and it is pretty deep so check your anchor whether it holds or not before swimming to the beach.

Southern side of Biševo Island offers a magnificent view and there is a cave you can go into with your dingy. The depth falls fast from 25 meters right by the cliffs to 95 and over 100 m only about 50 m or so away from the cliffs.

Under the highest peak of Biševo – Stražbenica (239 m above sea level) there is a large cave you can explore with your dingy but a part of the crew must stay on the boat, because the seabed is rock and it is very deep there so you probably won’t have enough anchor chain to anchor your boat anyway.

Blue Cave is situated in Balun Bay on Biševo Island. It is one of the most famous attractions on Adriatic.

Because of the underwater tunnel the cave lights up in magnificent blue color. The sunlight reflects from the white basin some 10 to 12 meters deep. The best part of the day to visit the Blue Cave is from 11AM ‘till 1PM.

The cave is 24 meters long and it has 15 meters ceiling. Just under the surface there is an underwater stone bridge connecting the two walls of the cave.

Blue cave was originally accessible only through its underwater tunnel through which the light comes in. Baron Eugen von Ransonet who first discovered the cave and painted it, suggested that a small tunnel is dug for small boats to te able to get in the cave. It was dug in 1884.

More than 10.000 tourists visit the cave each year through the 1.5 m high and 2.5 m wide tunnel on small dinghies.

If you visit the Blue Cave and anchor your boat in Balun Bay – a fair warning: it is deep and rocky bottom so anchor won’t hold very well. It is best for a part of the crew to stay onboard and see the cave in two groups.
