Situated north of Dubrovnik lies Slano, a deep bay sheltered from the winds and rough sea by surrounding hills and mountains. There is a good anchorage, as well as a waterfront mooring for yachts. A new ACI marina is opening there too. Riding a quad, cycling, trekking or just chilling out on one of the beautiful beaches in Slano are some of the activities you can do while staying there.
When people visit islands on their sailing trips, they oftentimes just stick to the coast and the nearby restaurants. That is a shame because island interiors can hide just as spectacular secrets as the coast. One of the great ways to discover entire islands is by bike. Read our skipper’s suggestion on what to see withing some of the Croatian islands!
If you are passing the Gate of Split, one of the busiest straits in the Adriatic, separating the islands Šolta and Brač, you will probably want to anchor in Livka. It is the southernmost bay on Šolta and a regular spot for swim breaks. Our skipper advises you where it is the best to anchor, so take a look!
Šešula is a small bay on the Croatian island of Šolta. It is popular among lovers of sailing because it is deep enough to protect from all winds. The old-fashioned way of anchoring with tying the stern ashore is still possible in the deepest and the calmest cove of the bay. A very good restaurant called Šišmiš is situated in the bay. Make sure you try their fish dishes, just announce your arrival in advance. They will even assist you with mooring and offer you free overnight stay on a buoy after the dinner.
Jorja is a small bay situated on the west coast of the Croatian island of Šolta. At first sight, it looks deserted, but is actually an excellent protection from northerly, westerly and easterly winds, and home to Kike’s taver, which serves perhaps the best brudet (seafood stew) in the Adriatic.
