In the case of N or NW winds, you can use this bay as a safe anchorage and enjoy traditional Dalmatian cuisine in a restaurant just couple of meters from the beach. Please avoid this bay in a case of E and SE winds and proceed to Sesula cove on the island of Solta. Main industries on the island are fishing, agriculture and tourism. The only village on the island is Drvenik and there you can find few grocery stores and restaurants. Everything else is beautiful non-polluted nature with numerous inlets and hidden bays.
