Croatia Sailing Destinations

Croatia sailing destinations: Pomena

Pomena is harbor on the NW coast of the Mljet Island protected from north by the island of Pomestak which is also a local naturist beach. Village has around 50 permanent inhabitants and they live from tourism, fishing and farming. Pomena is, together with Polace, one of the entrances to the National Park Mljet and it is located only 15 minutes walk from the Malo Jezero (Small Lake) of the Park. Bay is very good shelter except in the case of strong W and NW winds. In that case, it is recommended to anchor on the south side of the Pomestak or in the bay Lokva half a mile west of Pomena bay.

Other than anchorages, there is a quay on the east side which is taken by restaurant moorings. Usually, moorings with water and power supply are free if you use their restaurant’s service. Other quay is in front of the Hotel Odisej on the west side of the bay which is used by tripper boats and ferries, but there is enough place for 5-6 yachts next to it. Although a bit expensive, these berths are quickly taken in hot summer months because of amazing nature of the National Park.
