This is a must see if you like a nice view, clear water and snorkeling. The water was a little bit cold, though.

We went there by tourist boat trip. Place itself is beautiful and must see, but tourists will ruin the place. Sad but true. If you can, rent a boat and go with it, spend a few here. Don't take tourist boat trip, unless absolutely necessary!

Not much going on in Stinica and Jablanac but spending the day at this cove is worth it. Finish the day with dinner at the Lux restaurant in town. Nothing fancy but relaxing and good grilled fresh fish.

Beautiful secret spot. Amazing views. Worth to stay for a day/half a day. Good snorkeling place, espacially the shipwreck.

This hidden sea cove is well worth a visit. We had a beautiful day here, just chilling n snorkelling. Checked out the German shipwreck, walked a bit and had nice dinner in the village near buy.
