Pomena is a small village, as well as a port located at the western end of the island of Mljet, about 2 km away from the village of Govedjari. The village has just over 50 permanent residents.They live in agriculture, fishing and tourist trade. It was originally founded by the Govedjari people, as it was their nearest sheltered bay and access to the sea. They came to the bay mainly for fish. However, since the growth of tourist trade in the area and the construction of the Pomena Hotel, it has become a more tourist-oriented place.

I loved fishing that's why I chose to come to this place. It was great to see the fishermen catch tonnes of fish from this bay. I was invited to participate in a fish eating festival where all types of fish dishes were prepared traditionally. The event was great.
This place had an access to the sea and the beach. I went boating to the sea from this beach and loved the experience. The vast waters ahead we're scary but beautiful. We could see the underwater creatures clearly. I enjoyed this trip.
