The town of Senj is interesting, because it’s different from other, more touristic towns on Adriatic coast.
We took a trip along the coastal road called Jadranska magistrala and stopped in Senj.
The thing to see in Senj are the fort called Nehaj. It is located on the hilltop overlooking the town and nearby islands. The fort is a museum where history of the town and the fort itself dating back to year 1558 is on display. The tickets cost 7 kuna (which is about 1 €) and up to 20 kuna for adults. The museum is open every day from 10 AM till 6 PM off season and 9 AM till 9 PM during summer.

Osor marina and anchorage

The town of Osor lies on Cres with a opening bridge connecting islands Cres and Lošinj. The channel between the islands called Kavuada was dug in the roman times. The depth in the channel is 2,5 m but can go as low as 2,2 m so we reccomend you watch the tide. The bridge opens for marine traffic every day at 9AM and 5PM for 30 minutes but smaller boats can pass under all the time.

There are two bays N of the bridge that are fairly OK to anchor but both are fairly deep. Anchoring on 8 to 20 m depth. One bay is on the Lošinj side called Uvala Skaline and the other is Uvala Bijar on Cres side. Skaline is more protected from winds from the S and SW and Bijar more from winds from NE and SE.

South of the bridge there is a smal marina with a pontoon with about 50 berths. The depth ranges from 0,5 m up to 4 m. There are also 12 buoys along the Cres side.
The chanal is marked and very narrow (only 12 m) with depth of around 3 - 4 m. Bora (NE wind, gusty and choppy wave) can be very strong and it can be dangerous passing through the bridge canal in case of strong Bora.

There are shallows E and W of the marked chanal so we reccomend keeping inside it all the time unless you have very shallow draft.

Plavi Podrum is a restaurant in Volosko, near Opatija known for its outstanding cuisine.
We were pretty hungry so we started with dipping bread into different kinds of olive oil. The bread was totally black as if it was made with squid ink.

The real starter were shrimps with pines on rocket bed , the other was thin sliced mushrooms and tuna fillets also on rocket bed. Merlot sorbet was very interesting and the foam made of Campari juice.

With this we had some Malvazija – dry white wine of Veralda family.
There was risotto with shrimps from Dalmatia and asparagus mixed in for second course. It was accompanied by Sauvignon from Korak vineyard.

Third course was goose liver, soft as butter and ba bass filet and cod in a chunky tortellini which we dipped into a zucchini sauce. With that we enjoyed 2006 Pošip wine from Korta Katarina.

And desert: chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream and a few drops of olive oil. Odd but tasty combination.

We tried a few sorts of red vine – I remember 2007 Postup from Pelješac peninsula.
It really was a unforgettable culinary experience.

Privlaka Bridge

Privlaka Bridge is connecting the Lošinj channel with Port Mali Lošinj. It’s approximately 8 meters wide and around 80 meters long.

At the shallowest point there is about 2,5 m depth and there is strong current of 5 knots in under the bridge, so sailing boats must sail through with almost full power or almost none at all.
You’ll definitely feel which way you’re going.

Bridge clearance is also important information. It’s 2 meters at mid tide. Any higher and you get a convertible.

Opening hours are at 9 AM and at 18 PM. The bridge stays open for 30 minutes.

MattK | Mar. 03, 2012 @15:25

In high season everything runs slower, because of heavy traffic. Sometimes you have to wait as much as an hour. Anyway my point is don’t be hasty, you’re in no hurry, get yourself a beer and wait.

Krivica Anchorage
Krivica Anchorage
Krivica Anchorage
Krivica Anchorage

Krivica anchorage is a secluded bay on SW side of Mali Lošinj island, Croatia. It is known by boaters and sailors for its curved shape, which is why the anchorage is protected from all winds. The only part of the anchorage that is not well protected is the entrance to the bay. It is wider and open towards West.

The anchorage is very peaceful and quiet off season, but during summer time it is full of sailing boats and motor yachts. In 2011 there were buoys placed there and it costs 16 Croatian kuna per meter of boat length to stay for the night.

There are only 10 spaces with buoys but there is space enough for at least 60 more yachts to anchor and go stern to and put warps around by trees close by. You will be charged for the berth anyway because the whole anchorage is under service concession, as most of Croatia’s safe anchorages are these days. The seabed is sand and the anchor holds very well.

If you feel like a short hike, it’s worth climbing up the hill to St. Ivan chapel. It’s about 25 minute walk and the path is quite nice, though we recommend having good shoes or at least don’t go climbing it wearing your flip-flops.

After you get back down and don’t feel like cooking your own dinner, there is a lovely restaurant called after the next bay and anchorage, Balvanida and it is on a path half way between the two anchorages.

There is a floating grocery store - a rib coming into Krivica bay twice a day. You can always get fresh bread, pastries, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese, but you can also ask them to bring you anything you whish from Mali Lošinj or Ilovik island on their next trip.

Sailing from say Rab or Pag Islands towards south, Rakovica Bay on Maun Island is a nice place to spend the night especially because there are not many safe coves along Pags southern coast except ACI marina Šimuni.

You can spend the night in Rakovica as long as the forecast is not Bora (NE wind) towards which the Bay is open.

The bay itself is separated into two smaller bays with sharp rocks chiseled by sharp bora. The good thing about this bay is the depth and the seabed. In the middle of the southern part of the bay the depth is between 7 and 10 meters and the anchor held ok. We tied our stern to the rocky shore only about 5 meters off where more than enough depth was still under our rudder.

In the morning fishermen came and closed up the entire bay and put the nets all the way along the NE shore of Maun.

Again if the forecast is stable weather or winds from the south there is no problem anchoring there but if a front is coming in you better choose a safer spot to spend the night.

The last bay on SW side of island Mali Lošinj is called Plijeski. It’s relatively open so I don’t recommend staying the night but it’s very nice to take a swim because of its turquoise water and sandy beach.

If you want to drop anchor and stay the night I recommend coves Krivica, Balvanida or island Ilovik a little further to the south.

You may also get lucky and get a bite to eat from the tourist boats which come there every day and prepare barbecue – usually fresh fish and squid.
The most Famous of these boats is a small ship called Mate or Mateo.

Whenever I cross the Kvarner I like to stop by Galjola – if the weather allows it. Last few times it didn’t. But these photos show, that it can be a very nice experience. Small island with a lighthouse and pebble beach.

Nautic tips: wach out for shallow waters on SW and NE side – do not go to close, but at the same time, on these spots is where you can drop anchor if you wish.

Island Unije in Kvarner has three nice bays to stay the night with a boat. Maračol used to belong to the Yugoslav army and was closed to general public for a long time.

Now there is an anchorage there with 50 buoys to tie your boat to. Off course they are full during summer and you have to be very early if you want one. The price is 13 hrk/m.

If you’re too late, there are still Podkujni and Vognišca but no buoys. Island Unije is the last island before crossing the Kvarner which can be pretty rough in bad weather. It’s very open and the winds are strong, especially NE wind Bora.
