Albandon harbor with Ribnjak bay.

From the first to the 5th century, a large luxurious maritime Roman villa was located on this bay. During the construction of a new quay wall on the north side, three decorated hermes and plinths were found during dredging and archaeological research at the end of 2022.

A herma is sculpture with a head and a torso above a plain usually squared lower section and belonged to the garden architecture of wealthy families.

This area also has great natural values because freshwater mixes with seawater, resulting in a large number of plant and animal species.
