PORT Zlarin


The island of Zlarin, the third largest island of the Šibenik archipelago, is situated just under three miles SW of the port of Šibenik, eight miles NE of Žirje island and around three miles S of Prvić island. The port lies at the head of a deep, V-shaped bay on the NW side of the island. It is well protected from all winds except strong W and NW winds, which cause swell and waves.


The port offers approximately 20 berths. Visiting yachts can moor to the S side of the 140-metre-long pier, which is equipped with laid moorings, water and electricity connections. Water depth by the pier ranges from 1 m at the foot of the pier to 4.5 metres at the head of the pier. N side of the pier is used by ferry and excursion boats. There are also laid moorings on the first two out of three small jetties, situated by the east coast. Shallow to moderate draft yachts can also moor to the N side of the first two small jetties, where the water is around 2.5 m deep. Depth by the last jetty (the one closest to the coast) is only one metre deep, which is why only small local boats berth here. There are water and electricity connections on the first two jetties.

Alternatively, you can moor to one of the 11 mooring buoys by the west coast of the port.
