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.

Podškolj Bay is one of the most beautiful places I stopped at when sailing southern Adriatic. It is situated between Mljet Island and two smaller islands Školj Veli and Školj Mali overlooking Jakljan and Šipan Islands of the Elafiti Archipelago.

Between the small islands and Mljet Island there is a weak current that makes swimming a bit of a challenge.

The bay is a nice place to spend the night in stable weather and not so much when bora (NE) or jugo (SE) are pounding the rocks. Anchor held ok and the depth varies from 3 to 7 meters in between the islands.

There is a cute restaurant there but we didn’t try it out because we just stopped there to take a swim.

Prožura is a beautiful Bay on the NE side of Mljet Island. I even found a roadmap of Croatia with the cover photo of this bay on it.

Prožura is quite safe for anchoring except for the depth, which is too deep. You can tie your boat to a buoy of one of two restaurants or anchor by one of two smaller islands Planjak or Snjevci. The second restaurant has no buoys. You can anchor in the inner most part of the bay at about 4-10 meters.

Along Planjak the depth quickly deepens to 15 and more meters so you have to be close by. Snjevci is better but there is room enough for only two or three boats. Seabed there is sand and anchor holds well at about 3-4 meters.

Snjevci is an interesting island with stairs and a path that climbs to the top of it where view towards Elafiti Islands and towards Prožura opens up.

When we stopped at Polače Bay and had that magnificent dinner we also went to Sv. Marija Island on Grand Lake where there is a Benedictine monastery.

Tourist board holds various events; concerts, plays etc. on the terrace of the restaurant there and we went to listen to Ibrica Jusić – the legend of Croatian Chanson.

There were about three boats worth of spectators and the concert was great. Ibrica always brings along his dog Bond.

There are interesting events held there as a part of Mljet cultural summer festival so it’s worth checking out the calendar.

There are quite a few restaurants in Polače Bay on Mljet. Last year we went to Konoba Antika which is situated by the ruin where you can buy tickets for Mljet National Park.

We had fish soup for starter and then lobster and gilthead fish for main course and salt potatoes. With that we had a portion of shrimps in buzara sauce which is delicious and superb for dipping bread.

We had 1.5 l of white wine and a Coca Cola and we had pancakes for desert. The price: 1322 kn for 5 persons which is more than acceptable.

When you sail to Polače Bay on NE part of Mljet Island you are greeted by restaurant owners lifting moorings and inviting you to come and try their cuisine. Indeed most of them offer nice meals including brunches and breakfasts.

We tried ham and eggs for brunch and roasted goat for dinner in between we took a walk to the lakes and took a ride to Sv. Marija Island with the monastery .

I've been in Korcula many times, but only during summer time, when it's very crowded. This time we visited in April and I loved it. Everything was almost empty, no people untherneaththe the pine trees or on the famous tower staircase. A whole new picture for me!

There is only one bad thing about tourists not overcorwding Korcula: restaurants are closed, there is hardly any place, you can get anything to eat. We settled for pizza at the top of the town by the cathedral. Pizza was OK, but they obviously didn't clean the beer pipes for a while, becasue it wasn't too tasty.

I also tryed to make some night photos of Korcula and here they are.

Just west of Skrivena luka, there is a narrow bay we anchored at once.

We bought a nice fresh fish off a fisherman in Ubli where we poured some diesel into our tank (luckily the fishing boat was docked there otherwise we wouldn’t be able to fill up our tank because it is very shallow by the gas station – around 1.5 m) and we made a nice dinner in Uska.

Uska is a nice bay very safe if the forecast is bora (NE wind) and pretty ok in stable weather as well. I wouldn’t spend the night if winds from SW are blowing because Uska is open towards SW and the swells are pretty big.

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.

When visiting Lastovo Island there are quite a few places for you to spend the night.

Anchoring here in Veli Lago is not recommended because the depth is about 30 meters. Jurijeva luka just west is better or you can go to Mali Lago or Zaklopatica or Skrivena luka. Depends on the wather forecast.

We were there in low season and there was no one to be found at Veli Lago and the moorings in front of hotel Solitudo. The divers were fixing the moorings, but other than that, there was nobody there.

We couldn’t even get a cup of coffee anywhere. But the silence and the peace… it really is worth sailing Adriatic off season.
