MARINA Marina Poreč
Marina Poreč is located in Poreč, a small coastal town with rich history and cultural heritage, situated on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula. Poreč is often regarded as one of the most visited tourist destinations in Croatia. So, expect bustling crowds. Marina Poreč also gets crowded, especially in the high season. The town centre is just a 5-minute walk from the marina. The marina is well protected from winds and waves by the small island of Sveti Nikola (Saint Nicholas), as well as by the 160m long breakwater and 60m long pier, where the gas station and 5t crane are positioned. Although being mostly safe and well protected, swells are possible due to a strong north wind. The marina is open all year round.

The nearest airport and general hospital are in Pula, which is an hour drive from Poreč. Poreč is also well connected with other towns in Istria as well as cities such Ljubljana, Trieste and Zagreb.
When approaching Poreč, there are numerous dangers, which can be easily avoided by staying at least half a mile from the shore. If approaching from NW be careful of the rocky shoals near Barbaran islet. Also be cautious when approaching from S as there are shoals between St Nikola island and a small islet of Karbula. The narrow channel E of St Nikola island should only be approached in settled weather conditions and in a yacht of a moderate draft since the water in the channel is only 3 metres deep.
