Mrčara islet is small uninhabited island located west of the islands of Prežba. On the east coast of the island, in bay Konopljica is a small jetty with a small seasonal restaurant. Jetty is 50m long and 6m deep. Moorage is free for restaurant's guests. It is well sheltered from tramontane and maestral (northwest winds) but open on Bora. Much better shelter from Bora is bay Mrčara on the south side of island. Ships and ferries can generate heavy swells here. Therefore, it is advisable to make sure the anchor holds well and, if necessary, to keep sufficient distance to the pier. Depth in Mrčara bay is 10 - 15m. Island Mrčara has no water or electricity so prepare yourself for Robinson type of tourism and enjoy in untouched nature.

A group of islets located east from island Lastovo are named Lastovnjaci. Four biggest islets of Lastovnjaci are Saplun, Češvinica, Kručica and Stomorina. Mutually at the distance of few miles, this small group of islets can be your area to explore nature and beauty of Lastovnjaci. Bays at Saplun and Česvinica are very small, with depth of 11m, perfect for stay during the day and enjoy diving, we don't recommend it at windy time. Without any human influence, Lastovnjaci are excellent spot to escape from civilization, even for a day.
Also attractive spot for sailors is islet Kopište. This uninhabited little paradise is located 4 nm west from island Lastovo and is one of the favorite spot for underwater fishermen and divers. On the north side of islet is the largest bay Presma, suitable for anchoring, with depth of 15 m and with sand bottom.

The most isolated islet of Lastovo Archipelago is islet Sušac. This offshore islet is very popular among sailors and tourist because of the intensive feeling of detachment from the rest of the world. At Sušac you'll experience profound peace, silence and magnificent open sea views. Only inhabitants on islet are lighthouse workers, a shepherd and dozens of sheep and goats. If you want to visit lighthouse don't forget to bring some food or cigarettes for workers, they will appreciate it. The best places for anchoring are in bay Dol, on the east side of islet and in small bay Duga Cove, just below lighthouse. In both of bays depth is 8 - 12 m. We recommend you to climb on the highest rock Trišćavac and enjoy the view.
