Milna is a very nice port on Brač Island with two marinas. One is ACI marina Milna, situated right in the port, and the other is Marina Vlaška. It is about 10 minute walk from Vlaška to the port.

We tried to fill up our gas tank in Milna on Brač Island and it was open only ‘till 1PM. Last year these opening hours lasted until May 15th. After that, the station was open until 7PM.

For those withput their own ride – there is a catamaran Karolina, that connects Milna and Split every day (almost). Check the timetable here: www.jadrolinija.hr

This is how the fight for fuel looks like during season :)

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.

ACI marina Vrbovska in strong Jugo

When we sailed along southern coast of Brač Island Jugo (SE wind) was blowing at 30 knots and it was too much to enjoy Zlatni Rat so we sailed to ACI marina Vrbovska.

It was amazing how Jugo faded in the marina and even in season you are likely to get a berth, because Vrbovska is well off standard routes tourists take during their sailing trips across southern Damlatia.

If you take a look at the last photo…this is how it was the following morning. Sea as if it were oil.

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.

Clean sea and a nice and helpful concessionaire

It was a late august afternoon when we sailed into Griparica Bay on Škarda Island. The island has no permanent residents but during season concessionaire lives in a small house on waterfront.

Compliments to the guy that takes care of the buys; it was the first time that he waited for us at the buoy and helped us with docking. Good thing too, because the buoy only marks the location of the mooring.

We didn’t even need our own ropes for he did all the work and tied us to shore with our stern and tied the mooring to our bow.

The price for a 41-footer (12 m boat) is 150 kn.
Griparica Bay is open towards south so I don’t recommend spending the night if the forcast is strong winds from the south.

Last weekend we went to the tavern Maruzzella in Zambratija. It’s right by the roadside, with a big parking lot, opened all year and accepts credit cards.

It is about half a mile from the Zambratija pear, where you can land with smaller boats.

In short – it was good. We paid the classic a little over 500 Kn, their home made brad is a big plus as is the fact that their mixed mussels really include a variety of different sorts and the buzara sauce is well prepared.

The black risotto had some spice issues, but the grilled sole made up for it. Sadly, the desert was store-bought so we would be better off to skip that.

All in all, it is well worth a visit, certainly in you are in Zambratija and the really acceptable price definitely outweights the small faults.

The most western point of Croatia and the former Yugoslavia is the Savudria lighthouse, built in 1818, when it was commissioned by the Austrian emperor Franz I. The antennas for the mobile phones and the IR sensors are of a later date, of course. And, judging by the clothelines, it is still populated.

Also, the Savidria autocamp seems to have expanded all the way to the lighthouse. It is really well maintained, with nice plots and garvel pathways. It must be nice to look at the beam at night….
