They live of farming, fishing and tourist trade. Pomena was initially founded by Govedjari people, as that was their nearest sheltered bay and access to the sea. They used to come to Pomena mainly to fish. However, since the growth of tourist trade in the area, and construction of Hotel Odisej, Pomena became more of the tourist place.
Being located on just over 15 minutes walk to Malo Jezero (Small Lake) of Mljet National Park, Pomena nowadays has its hotel, couple of restaurants and coffee bars, souvenir shops, agencies etc… Pomena, as a bay, is a very safe place for anchorage, being sheltered by tiny island of Pomestak, which acts as a local naturist beach too.
