The tiny twin towns of Ston and Mali Ston lie at the very beginning of the Peljesac Peninsula. Medieval defensive walls connect the two towns. They lie approximately 34 miles northwest of Dubrovnik.
Above all, sailing crews like to stop in Ston to taste its excellent oysters, cultivated in Mali Ston bay.
Ston – Things to See and Do
- Firstly, walk the Ston Walls. These fortifications, built in 1358 mainly to protect the valuable salt pans, connect Ston and Mali Ston.
- For a first-hand look at how fresh the oysters are, take an Oyster Tour.
- Join a fishing tour. Bota Sare offers short fishing excursions, day-fishing, multi-day fishing, and extreme multi-day fishing.
- Visit the nearby Prapratno Beach, with calm shallow water, perfect for children. The beach has a volleyball area, paddle boats, and a restaurant. Make sure to stop by the fruit, vegetable, olive oil, and wine stands next to the parking lot.
- In conclusion, dine at Kapetanova Kuca in Mali Ston. There you can try the freshest oysters, shellfish, black risotto, organically grown vegetables, and Peljesac wines.
Marinas and Anchorages
- The most well-protected anchorages are at Lovitse and Ston, but there are other small harbors all along the Peljesac Peninsula’s east and south coast.
- On the peninsula’s south coast, there’s a quiet fishing village called Trstenik. Part of the waterfront here is suitable for mooring and anchoring.
- Ston has many restaurants that provide mooring berths.
