    Great anchorage area. Not too well sheltered from any winds indeed, but the islands all around limit the waves to a minimum. The sea bottom is at 4 to 5 m, so if you give 30 m of chain, you're more than wellparked. Beautiful monastery on Badija bank with a huge mountain from the mainland in the backdrop make for a picturesque scenery. A small bar on Badija works from 10 AM to 7 PM and even offers carrots for the residential deer :-) The town of Korcula a short dingy ride away, but you probably don't want to go there on a dingy for quite some traffic from ferries and yachts. We've spent a very nice, quiet night here, but the winds were at 3 kn max. Not sure how this place would work in stronger winds. Especially an easter wind would come in here unobstructed potentially bringing noticeable swell too.

    Below the monastery, a well-kept sand and mud bed, on 3-5 meters of water. The bathroom is disturbed by the passage of taxi boats, which love to touch the bow of the boats at anchor. The water is crystal clear. We arrived with 20-22 knots of wind from the west and here we were calm and sheltered. We had no toll requests: luck! Good internet signal.

    Sotto il monastero, fondo di sabbia e fango di buona tenuta, su 3-5 metri di acqua. Il bagno è disturbato dal passaggio dei taxi boat, che amano sfiorare la prua delle barche alla fonda. L’acqua è cristallina. Siamo arrivati con 20-22 nodi di vento da ovest e qui siamo stati tranquilli e riparati. Non abbiamo avuto richieste di pedaggi: fortuna! Buon segnale internet.

    Magical anchorage with its magnificent monastery and its gently sloping white sand bottoms. Protection is good on all sides even though the weather was calm during our midday stopover and for the night. Few passages of the shuttle to Korcula. No one came to ask us for money. Early wake up with the 6 o'clock chime but we get back quickly. The panorama and the calm are worth it.

    Mouillage magique avec son monastère magnifique et ses fonds de sable blanc en pente douce. La protection est bonne de tous côtés même si le temps était calme lors de notre escale de midi et pour la nuit. Peu de passages de la navette pour korcula. Personne n'est venu nous réclamer de l'argent. Réveil matinal avec le carillon de 6h mais on se rendore vite. Le panorama et le calme en valent la peine.
