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.

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.

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 .

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 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.

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.

About a mile and a half SE from Milna on Hvar Island there is an interesting natural port with a breakwater made of rock.

There are buoys in this natural port which belong to a local restaurant. This natural port called Zub oz Zaraća is protected from winds from all sides, except from SW to SE.

It is a good thing that the restaurant owner put those buoys there, otherwise no one would be able to stop there, because the depth is too big to drop anchor.

If there are winds from the South it is better to hide in Malo Zaraće on the West side-towards Milna.

Moli Onte restaurant is where you feel like you’re visiting an old friend, where the food is great, especially grilled fish, and where prices are not as steep as at some places across Adriatic.

Do not ask for a menu. Take what has been caught in the morning and what they grew in their own backyard. They also offer delicious olive oil they produce themselves! We always leave with a couple of bottles.

There are buoys in front of the restaurant and if you are on a charter boat you don’t even have to lower your dinghy because they come and pick you up and deliver you back to your boat.

The bay itself is relatively open so there can be some swells from other boats and ships passing by as well as winds except bora (NE wind).
