The bay of Telascica is located on the south-eastern part of the Dugi Otok Island. The name Telascica derives from Latin Telagus which means three lakes what implies on three smaller bays within the wider area of the Park. Telascica is the largest and best protected natural harbour on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. There are five islets in the bay of which the most extraordinary is the islet of Taljuric that is actually a small rock slab.
Here we are docking near salt lake Mir. The Lake is situated in the south-western part of the Park. The water in the lake is salty due to the underground canals that are connected with the sea.The area abounds with richness of flora and fauna. Within the park is situated a donkey reserve.

Here you will have free time to have lunch, swim and walk along coast side of the Island. The path that goes around the lake is leading you to the cliffs.
