Prapratno is a small bay situated just about 3 kilometres west of ancient town Ston on the Peljesac peninsula.
The bay is south facing and it has its lovely sandy beach that is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole Adriatic.
Seawater is warm and crystal clear while the bay is surrounded by olive and pine trees.
Near the beach there is a campsite too that attracts hundreds of tourists and travellers in the summer months.
Right above the bay, there is a small cafe – bar/restaurant where most of the buses that travel along with the Peninsula stop for a break and refreshment. From that point, there is about 15 min walk downhill to reach the ferry terminal.

Recently the bay become important as a connection point for a ferry from Prapratno to Mljet (Sobra), a new ferry pier was ready in 2006 and is currently fully functional. Previously, Trstenik bay was the main ferry port that served car ferries to Mljet island.

Currently, this is the port for a car ferry which you will use if you intend to drive from Dubrovnik or from Split to Mljet island, as this is the only port that connects by car ferry to the island and National Park to the mainland.
