Polače/island of Mljet
Polače is one of the oldest inhabited places on Mljet. It was named after an ancient Roman palace on whose foundations the settlement was founded. In the 3rd century, the Romans built a villa in the bay, which was sheltered from all the winds. However, the most important factor when selecting the location for the palace must have been the vicinity of a spring with potable water, which is still in the village.

Anchorage in Polače
The berths on the quay and in front of the restaurants are well protected from the bura and jugo winds, the anchorage less so. If there is a strong gale, it is recommended to move to one of the berths on the quay.
The berths on the quay have moorings. Whether you will be charged for the berth depends on whether you make use of the services provided by one of the restaurants on the shore. In the bay, there are also several mooring buoys. The anchoring depths are between 12 and 14 metres. The bottom is muddy and holds anchor very well.
