PORT Zverinac


Zverinac is a small island in the Zadar Archipelago, situated a mile from the NE coast of Dugi Otok Island, and almost two miles W of Sestrunj Island.  The only settlement on the island is the village of Zverinac, situated on the W coast of the island, opposite the village of Božava on the island of Dugi Otok. Zverinac is an interesting destination to boaters for its secluded location and beautiful surroundings. The harbour of Zverinac offers good shelter from all winds but is exposed to strong and dangerous S winds (jugo).


Zverinac Port has four jetties (32, 42, 60 and 28 metres long) where visiting yachts can moor. The berths on the inside part of the jetties offer some protection from the S winds (if they are not too strong). The northernmost of the three jetties, where the water is 8 m deep, has laid moorings for 6-8 yachts.

Water and electricity and laid moorings are provided only on some of the jetties.

There is a shop and a restaurant in the village of Zverinac. Other facilities such as an ambulance, post office, seasonal port of entry, small farmer’s market, few shops and restaurants are available in the nearby town of Božava on Dugi Otok (2 nm).
