If you are sailing from Vela Luka side, we recommend you to anchor bareboat in Jurjeva Luka bay on island Prežba. Jurjeva Luka is probably the safest bay on Velo Lago bay and north-west part of Lastovo Island. It is hidden from all winds so it is safe shelter for oversleep when the storm is approching. Jurjeva Luka is located on the east part of Island Prežba, second bay on left when you're sailing from south side.

By entering Jurjeva Luka you will notice a lot of devastated military objects. Lastovo was military base from World War l until the Independents of Croatia 1992. Ruins remains just a monuments on military which influent on island demography. You will notice also lot of Italians on island. It is because Lastovo was under Italian occupation from 1918 till 1943, so even today, when Lastovo is open for sailors, Italians are most common visitors.
Jurjeva Luka is quiet bay, without restaurants, stores or local houses. From the bay you may walk next to the seaside and reach Pasadur, village well known for bridge which connects Prežba and Lastovo Island. In Pasadur you may find restaurants and café. The passage over bridge (local pasadur) connects two salted lakes/bays - Malo Lago, situated at northern part of island Prežba and Velo Lago, south part of Prežba (Lago/Lake). Malo Lago is also great place to anchor but be aware by entering the bay, there are series of low, barely visible rocks and Hljeb Rock W of Veli Maslovnjak and N of Mali Maslovnjak. We recommend sailing between Prehodišće Point and Veli Maslovnjak.

For food supply we suggest you to go to Ubli. Ubli is village located in the Velo Lago bay on the southern part of the island of Lastovo. Ubli is main harbor of Lastovo island, a ferry port where passengers arrive at Lastovo Island by ferry from Split, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Mljet, and Vela Luka. At Ubli you may also fill fuel tank at fuel station, have a lunch at local restaurant or buy some local delicacies; wines, olive oils, sweets made by local fruits and spices etc. From Ubli also starts buses which connects two biggest places in Lastovo island; Lastovo place and Skrivena Luka.
