During high season, Lučice anchorage on Brač Island about a mile east of Split gate (Splitska vrata), is very crowded. We stopped there in April and we were alone there.

Lučice is well protected from all winds, except for from south mabye.

There is 20 buoys there mainly for the guests of restaurant Smrčeva. They are the oncessionaire at Lučice as well.

The prices vary from 80kn to 240 kn (for boats larger then 12m.

Lučice and the owners of the restaurant are well known for their care for the environment and clean anchorage.

Milna is a very nice port on Brač Island with two marinas. One is ACI marina Milna, situated right in the port, and the other is Marina Vlaška. It is about 10 minute walk from Vlaška to the port.

We tried to fill up our gas tank in Milna on Brač Island and it was open only ‘till 1PM. Last year these opening hours lasted until May 15th. After that, the station was open until 7PM.

For those withput their own ride – there is a catamaran Karolina, that connects Milna and Split every day (almost). Check the timetable here: www.jadrolinija.hr

If you charter your boat from Marina Kaštela, which is one of the most popular and busiest starting points for sailing the Adriatic, a good spot to spend your first or last night aboard is Bobovišće anchorage.

Bobovišće is a deep bay with two smaller bays at the end. Both are quite narrow so during season there can be a bit crowdy. It is well protected from bora and jugo (NE and SE winds) and not so much from Maestral – wind from NW which is a sign of stable weather.

It is only 13 miles from Bobovišće to Marina Kaštela so in you can be docked in the marina in little less than two hours sailing.

About a mile and a half SE from Milna on Hvar Island there is an interesting natural port with a breakwater made of rock.

There are buoys in this natural port which belong to a local restaurant. This natural port called Zub oz Zaraća is protected from winds from all sides, except from SW to SE.

It is a good thing that the restaurant owner put those buoys there, otherwise no one would be able to stop there, because the depth is too big to drop anchor.

If there are winds from the South it is better to hide in Malo Zaraće on the West side-towards Milna.

Hey adrialog users. I presume, most of you are nautical enthusiasts and that this portal is ment to share info about experience of our sailing in Adriatic - by the way great idea this website!
So here goes: Me and my friends went sailing in Croatian Dalmatiam islands in the begining of April this year and we stopped in Split just in time to visit the fair. Despite this global shit there were quite some boats on display, but for my taste too few sailboats.
Anyway our week was great, the weather was just right and I`m sure, that we will visit again!
Hope to hear from as much people as possible, because I would like to hear other people`s experiance as well.

Expensive daily berth in Maslinica

Maslinica is a nice little port on NW side of Šolta Island. It is protected by a group of small islands.

There is an ex-monastery turned into a nice hotel by a German owner. There are moorings also but they are a bit expensive. For 11.5 meter sailboat 460 kuna and they don’t even have showers for boating tourists.

Nevertheless it is a nice place to visit, but if the weather is clear, there is no reason to pay that much for a berth, especially when there is a nice, even better protected bay called Šešula just south of Maslinica.

When we sailed along southern coast of Brač Island Jugo (SE wind) was blowing at 30 knots and it was too much to enjoy Zlatni Rat so we sailed to ACI marina Vrbovska.

It was amazing how Jugo faded in the marina and even in season you are likely to get a berth, because Vrbovska is well off standard routes tourists take during their sailing trips across southern Damlatia.

If you take a look at the last photo…this is how it was the following morning. Sea as if it were oil.

When visiting Lastovo Island there are quite a few places for you to spend the night.

Anchoring here in Veli Lago is not recommended because the depth is about 30 meters. Jurijeva luka just west is better or you can go to Mali Lago or Zaklopatica or Skrivena luka. Depends on the wather forecast.

We were there in low season and there was no one to be found at Veli Lago and the moorings in front of hotel Solitudo. The divers were fixing the moorings, but other than that, there was nobody there.

We couldn’t even get a cup of coffee anywhere. But the silence and the peace… it really is worth sailing Adriatic off season.

Just west of Skrivena luka, there is a narrow bay we anchored at once.

We bought a nice fresh fish off a fisherman in Ubli where we poured some diesel into our tank (luckily the fishing boat was docked there otherwise we wouldn’t be able to fill up our tank because it is very shallow by the gas station – around 1.5 m) and we made a nice dinner in Uska.

Uska is a nice bay very safe if the forecast is bora (NE wind) and pretty ok in stable weather as well. I wouldn’t spend the night if winds from SW are blowing because Uska is open towards SW and the swells are pretty big.

Nice sunset on Kakan Island

A narrow bay

We spent the night at Borovnjaci anchorage on Kakan Island. The anchorage is situated between Kakan and two smaller islands called Borovanjak mali and Borovnjak Veli. The bay itself is called Potkućina.

There are about 10 buoys there and the rest of the surface is good for anchoring. The price for the buoys is about 200 kn for a 7-15 m boat.
Borovnjaci anchorage is especially nice at the shallowest point between Borovnjak Veli and Kakan Island because of its turquoise water.

In Tratica Bay, just SE of Potkućina there is a nice but simple restaurant run by a nice family. The prices are about the same as at Kornati (that is to say not too cheap).

The restaurant has a couple of their own buoys for their guest but if the forecast is bora (NE wind) I wouldn’t stay the night.

Oh and when going to the bathroom in the restaurant we recommend taking a headlamp.
