Blue Cave

42.370426°N 18.599444° E

The Blue Cave is a must stop when you sail from Trašte Bay towards Boka Kotorska.

It is one of the most attractive in a series of caves located on the peninsula. Its beautiful blue color is the result of the reflection of sun rays on clear sunny days.

The cave has two openings. Smaller is to the south and larger which is 3 meters high and 15 meters wide is located on the southwest side. You can enter through the larger entrance by your dinghy and enjoy swimming it this natural phenomenon.

The ceiling is about 9 meters high and resonance of the cave turns every sound within it into an echo.

The best time for visiting is in the early morning before the tourist boats arrive.

Žanjic, Mirišta and Dobreč cove

You can moor your yacht either in Žanjic or Mirišta or you can sail further north to a narrow Dobreč cove which is less known. The small beachfront restaurant called VeStevuzo serves fresh fish caught locally. You should moor your yacht here only if the weather is calm without W i SW wind.

Buoys for yachts are provided in cove Žanjic, and between Žanjic and Mirišta you will find another nice restaurant called Ribarsko Sello (fishing village) with a little pier in front of it.

Island Lastavica (Mamula) - notorious Musolini’s prison

The name Mamula is given after Lazar Mamula, Austro-Hungarian general who built it in 19th century to provide defense from enemy ships. During the both of the World Wars it was a prison. If you wish to make a tour of the island sail there by your dinghy and bring solid footwear, not flip-flops.

Rose, a cozy fishing hamlet

Rose was mostly built in the 17th and 18th century, in the period of golden ages of Bokas Maritime when many people of Luštica used to sail with their sailboats through the Mediterranean and other seas.

It is a typical Mediterranean village with detached stone houses and a little pier. One of the building used to be a medieval fortress and today there is a restaurant called Forte Rose.

You can moor your yacht at a little pier or use the buoys but only if there is no strong W or NW wind.
