Šešula bay

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.

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.
