MARINA ACI Marina “Veljko Barbieri” Slano
ACI marina “Veljko Barbieri” Slano is the newest ACI marina opened in August 2016, named after the founder of the ACI marinas chain. The marina is located in a small village of Slano, 13 miles NW of Dubrovnik and two miles NE of the island of Šipan. Slano is a great sailing destination for boaters looking for peaceful nights and exciting day trips to beautiful the nearby Elaphiti Islands, Trsteno Arboretum and Walls of Ston, once a major fort of the Ragusan Republic. Situated in a deep and sheltered inlet, the marina offers a safe refuge from all winds, although strong SW winds can cause an unpleasant swell. The marina is open all year round.
ACI marina “Veljko Barbieri” Slano has a total capacity of 193 wet berths, all of which are equipped with water and electricity. The marina can accommodate vessels up to 20 m in length. Water depth in the marina ranges from 2.5 to 15 m.

The small village of Slano offers few facilities, such as an ambulance, dentist, post office, police station, private accommodation, cash point (ATM) and few shops and restaurants, all within walking distance of the marina. The city of Dubrovnik, which is approximately 27 km south, offers a wider range of facilities such as a bank, hospital, farmer’s market and fish market to beautiful cultural and historic landmarks and tourist attractions. There are also many restaurants, cafes, nightclubs, bars, supermarkets and shops.
The nearest general hospital is in Dubrovnik, and the closest airport is Dubrovnik Airport in Ćilipi, which is approximately an hour drive from Slano. Slano is connected to Dubrovnik by local bus. The road leading to the marina, which postponed the opening of the marina, is still under development.
The approach to Slano Bay, where the marina is located, leads through a 340-metre-long passage between the Cape Gornji and Cape Donji. There are no hazards when approaching the Slano Bay. However, be careful not to sail too close to Cape Donji as there are some shoals nearby.
