Once merely a small pier for fishing boats of the fishermen from Govedari, Pomena is today the tourist centre of the island of Mljet. Hotel Odisej is located in a nice, forested cove, surrounded by islets. It offers various sports and recreational facilities; visitors are offered bicycles, canoes and surfboards; yachting and diving workshops are also organized. There are also hiking opportunities.
