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.
