Lastovo, Skrivena Luka
Described by CIYC member Ivica V as a safe anchorage, Skrivena Luka on the southern shore of Lastovo has a narrow entrance facing to the south-west and provides good shelter from all directions. Within is a broad bay with three main mooring options. Anchoring is possible in waters from 2 -15 metres or you can moor at one of two micro-marinas. Both are attached to restaurants though of the two Ivica V reports that the western one, Porto Rosso (left inside the entrance) is better value and the one to the east can be overly expensive.
777 reports that Porto Rosso charges a fee for moorings (regardless of the use of the restaurant) but offers power and water in that fee. In addition they offer other services including laundry for a few euros.
Both Bora and Sirocco can affect the anchorage so you should be sure of your holding which is reported as being uncertain to poor in places. Flashing lights mark the entrance, to the south on the summit of the low headland of Rt Struga (Fl. 10s) and to the north on the end of the headland that marks the entrance to the bay (Fl. R. 3s)
