Sveti Ante/island of Silba
Sveti Ante is a spacious bay, named after the small church dedicated to St. Anthony which stands nearby. The coast is mainly rocky and the sea bottom is a combination of rocks, gravel and muddy sand. The attraction of the bay is a dense forest with lots of shade.
The bay is very well protected against the bura wind, which can cause a lot of trouble in this area. When a strong jugo wind blows, it is better to take refuge in the small harbour of Mol near the village of Silba.
The pier for mooring boats and the village of Silba are connected by a beautiful path through the woods. It is a leisurely 20-minute walk.
There are 36 buoys in the bay. Nice sandy beaches can be found in the immediate vicinity of the bay on the western side of the island.
It is best to tie boats to a buoy and go to one of the swimming locations on foot or by dinghy. It is a 5-minute slow walk to the nearest beach.
You can reach the sandy beach in the neighbouring bay to the south by dinghy.
Sveti Ante Bay on Silba should definitely be visited if you find yourself in this area.
