Zavratnica Bay is a beautiful spot to cool off in the sea and you can also snorkel a sunken ship.

The cost path from Jablanac where we were staying is about a 20 minute walk and has some stunning views of the sea and the cliffs.

When you arrive a slightly dodgy looking guy (who may or may not be in his official hut) will ask you for a fee to enter the national park. We initially thought this was a scam as the guy was so peculiar and had nothing to show he wasn’t some random, but I think it is in fact legit as we saw a sign later mentioning the park fee.

We stayed at Lux hotel in Jablanac which is the only one in town and as such wasn’t cheap. It was fine though and after spending so many nights camping we enjoyed sleeping in a proper bed. There is apparently WiFi but we couldn’t get tit to work. The restaurant served reasonably priced food but was nothing special.

Also worth noting if you stay round here it’s best to make sure you bring some cash with you as the card payment machines are often out of order. This is also the case for the nearest ATM at the ferry port.
