Saplunara - Island of Mljet
Saplunara is tiny place located at the Eastern tip of Island of Mljet, along the island’s main road.
It is established not so long ago by people of Korita village (located further up the hills). Saplunara has about 20 houses and 30 permanent inhabitants.
The place is well known for its sandy beaches Velika and Mala Saplunara and Blace, surrounded by dense pine woods. Because of its sandy beaches Saplunara’s name has roots in Latin word for sand - “sabulum”.
The bay of Saplunara is opened to the south west, so it has a lot of natural sun. The bay is about one kilometre long and sea water is very warm, due to its secluded position.
