Three kilometers west of the ancient town of Ston, on the peninsula of Pelješac, you can find Prapratno Bay. Known for its warm and crystal clear waters, the bay is surrounded by pine and olive trees. The bay has a campsite during the summer that attracts travelers and tourists. Near the beach there is an auto camp and a nudist beach. There is also a rocky beach with absolutely amazing sea water, combination of all shades of blue and turqouise. You can explore the peninsula either by hiking inland, taking a peaceful boat ride along the Ston Channel or surf along the narrow channels. Recently the bay became an important connection point for ferry from Prapratno to the island of Mljet.
