Anyone familiar with Prozura (Mljet, Croatia)?

We're chartering from Dubrovnik next week and planning a rough route. I know a lot of people are very familiar with Dalmatia, I know it better from Korcula and North/West and less so over to Dubrovnik.

We want a swim stop en route from Sipanska Luka to Pomena and the obvious place is Prozura on the north eastern coast of Mljet.

We've consulted our well-worn pilot and the interwebs, and anchoring may be a faff (deep water, would rather not long line for just a swim stop if we can help it). It's clear there are restaurant buoys and a small restaurant quay but given the lack of mooring (non-anchoring) options elsewhere on Mljet/Lastovo for overnighting, we'll be using a lot of restaurant quays over the week and don't really want to eat out again nor stop that long.

I've found some vague references to some mystical additional buoys:

The quay of Konoba Barba in the main cove has four laid moorings in depths of just 1.5 - 1.8 metres, plus a further four marked yellow mooring buoys in 5.0 - 6.0 metres for patrons. There are four additional (unmarked) orange mooring buoys further out in 10 metres, which can also be picked up.


anyone familiar and
a) are these "town"/official buoys where we can get on one and not be charged if not overnighting?
b) if not, is it in fact not so bad anchoring there for just a stop of an hour or two?

Thanks in advance!

The chart indicates anchoring in Prozura but have not done it. Why not anchor next door in Okuklje, there is definitely water shallow enough for anchoring. If the wind is unfavourable, it is probably the best shelter on Mljet along with Polace. Actually, eating in the Maran restaurant there would be on my list, have been there several times and not disappointed.

Thanks for the reply. Okuklje is an option, the only reason we weren't planning it is that we will overnight there late in the week as we head back towards Dubrovnik and wanted a different option for a simple swim stop.

We'll check out Prozura and see how it is. We don't mind paying to use a buoy per se, but just unlikely to want to patronise a restaurant that day/as we pass through around 11am!
