Polace Bay (Luka Polače) is a deep bay at the north-western end of Mljet Island (Otok Mljet) in Croatia, within the boundaries of Mljet National Park. The bay is a popular overnight anchoring spot for leisure boats, sailing ships and the like. The front of the bay is protected by a series of small islands, while at the back is the small village of Polače, which used to be a fishing village.
Polače has a number of quayside moorings available for boats. The shorefront is lined with various restaurants specialising in fish. Some of these restaurants also have moorings, allowing clients to disembark directly into the dining area. The village has one store shop. Polače is also at the entrance to Miljet National Park, and buses run from here to the ferry point for those wanting to visit Sv Marije and the 12th century Monastery of St Mary.
