Manastir: Ruins of the Dominican Monastery, dating from the 15th Century

Manastir on the island of Scedro is a delightfully serene cove. Somewhat narrower than you expect, the head of the bay is occupied by the crumbling ruins of a 15th century monastery and a lovely restaurant. Surrounded by trees and ancient overgrown gardens, it doesn’t take too much imagination to understand why the site was chosen for contemplation.

The restaurant has provided a couple of buoys for clientele to use. If these are occupied, long-line to the shore where possible.

Ashore there is only the restaurant by way of amenities. However, one of the many walks that are signposted around the island should help you work up an appetite for its limited menu. It is only a short walk over the hill, to the west, to reach the bay of Lovisce. Here there are another three restaurants to choose from.

There is not much left of the old monastery buildings. The place has literally been left to go to rack and ruin so don’t expect too much if you decide to take a closer look. Also take care when walking around the site as some parts of the structure are very unstable.
