There is a terrace
which hides a restaurant and bar
in its shade, surrounded by pure nature. There is no loud music or wild cocktail parties, but a small and cheerful family restaurant offering you seafood delicacies. This place was formerly owned by a tourist company from Korčula, welcoming nudists from Korčula
. Afterwards, the bar and restaurant were abandoned because the company went bankrupt, while the lagoon and the beach were occasionally visited by random passengers.
Around ten years ago, the concession was renewed and the forgotten lagoon became a popular place
and having a delicious lunch
