Podskolj (Mljet)

Podskolj is a handy bay on the southeast corner of Mljet Island. Blessed with clear water, Podskolj affords good protection from the afternoon northwest summer winds in very pleasant surroundings. This is a popular area for bareboat yacht charters and flotillas so get in early if you want a buoy.

Sailing Choices Top Tip

Restaurant Buoys: It is important to be sure that all the ropes etc. are in good condition when using buoys. If a visual check is not possible, gently motor in reverse once you are attached to check the buoy is capable of holding you.

There are two restaurants in Podskolj. Both have buoys available for use. In 2015, a partly sunken wreck was also in service as a mooring buoy!

It is also possible to anchor but room is limited and good holding patchy. Make sure your anchor is well in before leaving your yacht. If you are unsure it is better to head around the corner to Saplunara Bay where there is more sand to take your chances on.

There are no shops here but it is only a short walk to the little grocery market at Saplunara.

There is also a lovely walk up the hill directly behind the bay to a high point with a cross on it. From the top you get great views out over the island, the mainland coast and surrounding sea.
