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!
