SUPETARSKA DRAGA
 

SUPETARSKA DRAGA 2
  Gornja  S.Draga - the mill


St. Peter

 
Supetarska Draga continues on the Mundanije valley and embraces the bay on both sides. 
It is divided on Upper and Lower Draga. The word "draga" here meaning the bay although can mean a 'darling'.
The name derives the meaning after the name of the church of St. Peter, located next to it.
Locals in Draga have always been turned to sea more than the others on the island. Many are sailors. 
It is no wonder that the ACI Marina and crane settled right there in the sheltered bay which is also known 
as a nesting place and  winter home for migrant birds. 

Boaters like it a lot as they can quickly reach little uninhabited islets Maman, Srednjak and Sailovac, 
while other tourists spend their holidays in numerous pensions and apartments.
