Pontoon berths in Marina Vrsar

Marina Vrsar is situated in the harbour of Vrsar in Croatia, five miles S of the harbour and marina of Porec and the same distance N of the harbour and marina of Rovinj. The marina is owned and operated by the Montraker leisure resort company, which also operates the small resort and marina of Marina Funtana 1.5 miles to the N. Marina Vrsar has greater depths than most marinas in Istria and can thus accommodate larger yachts. It offers 220 berths in total for yachts up to 50 metres and in depths of up to 12.0 metres.


Contact Marina Vrsar on VHF channel 17 prior to entry. Alternatively, telephone or e-mail to enquire about berthing or advance reservations. Reception hours are 0700 - 2100.


As with most of the towns in Istria, a conspicuous belfry in the town of Vrsar on a hill above the harbour at the head of the bay is identifiable from distance. There are numerous rocky islets off the coast in the approaches from both N and S and the safest option (unless you have a large scale chart) is to stay at least a mile offshore until the bay of Vrsar opens up to the N of Sv. Juraj island, which protects the bay from seaward. The bay is entered from NW, leaving the marked shoal of Mramori to starboard and small islet of Galiner to port. Entry via the shallow channel SE of Sv. Juraj island is prohibited as the area is buoyed off for swimming. The marina is installed along the northern shore of the bay and protected from NW by a long breakwater. Depths in the marina range from 4.0 - 12.0 metres, the deeper water being towards the end of the first pier and the breakwater. Shelter is reasonable, although strong NW winds create a surge.


Berthing assistance available. Yachts berth bows or stern-to on the outer breakwater or one of seven long piers. There are laid moorings at all berths. Space between some of the piers is not great and assistance will be required in any fresh to strong winds unless you have a good bowthruster.

  • Restaurant
  • Chandlery (small)
