Inlet of Vira (Pribinja) from the N

The inlet of U. Vira (also shown on some charts as U. Pribinja) lies on the N coast of Hvar Island in Croatia, just under two miles NNW of Hvar Town but nearer seven miles by sea. The bay has two branches, the W beach contains the small fishing harbour of Vira with a quay usable by visiting yachts, the E beach contains an attractive anchorage with a hotel and restaurant ashore. There is a large campsite on the headland between the two branches. Shelter in the inlet is good in all but very strong N winds.

There are no dangers in the approach to Luka Vira. There is a light structure on the headland W of the entrance. Depths in the W branch are 12.0 metres, shelving to 5.0 metres at the quay on the SW side, and in the E branch are 12.0 metres until almost at the head, when depths reduce to 8.0 - 10.0 metres.


Stari Grad and Hvar Town are summer ports of entry only. At other times of the year, Split and Korčula are the nearest year-round ports of entry.
