Polace Mljet

The Mljet National Park lies between the villages of Polace and Pomena at the northern end of the island of Mljet, said to be the most beautiful in the Adriatic. Luka Polace is a spacious anchorage located at the end of a long inlet protected by four wooded islands lying in its approach. The ruined castle overlooking the bay probably dates from the 3rd or 4th century AD. It is said to have belonged to Agesilaus who was exiled by Emperor Septimus Severus, and was later pardoned by Emperor Caracalla. Next to the castle are the ruins of an early 5th century Christian basilica. The present village dates from the 18th century.

Luka Polace is virtually landlocked and therefore very well protected. Polace is the best place to leave your yacht while you explore the two deep, forest-shrouded saltwater lakes of the National Park on land. It’s about a forty five minute walk over to the lakes via Montokuc hill. Alternatively you can hire a bicycle. Malo jezero (Small Lake) and Veliko jezero (Big Lake) are surrounded by cycling and walking paths and the clear green waters just cry out to be swum in. The Benedictines established a monastery on St Mary’s Island in the middle of one of the lakes in the twelfth century. Overlooked by a sturdy defensive tower, the monastery church features chunky, brightly-coloured altarpieces carved from local stone.
 

 

Mooring:

  • Moor bow to the quay near the castle, staying clear of the ferry berth.
  • The quayside east of the ferry berth is claimed by the various restaurants, so if you’re planning to visit one of them you should not moor there.
  • Alternatively, anchor in the north part of the bay where the best shelter is to be found.  The bottom is mud, with excellent holding.
