Harbour of Prvic Luka from W

Prvić is an island which lies off the mainland coast of Croatia, barely three miles W of the port of Šibenik. The islands of Tijat and Zlarin lie immediately W and SE respectively. Although Prvic has a total area of under a square mile, the island supports a population of around 450 – a surprising population for an island of its size.

Most of the inhabitants live in the two settlements of Prvić Luka on the S side of the island and Šepurine on the W side. Apart from some olive oil and wine production (as well as fishing), the overwhelming source of revenue for the island is tourism.

Like many of the smaller Croatian islands, Prvić is traffic-free. There are no cars on the whole island, except a fire truck. Instead, there are a few tractors and plenty of bicycles.

Anchorage of U. Kobila near Sepurine

U. Kobila

Anchorage icon U. Kobila [[Prvić#U. Kobila|U. Kobila]] 43°43.739'N, 015°47.337'E

The anchorage of U. Kobila lies 500 metres S of the harbour of Sepurine, inside the headland of Rt. Kobila, and offers reasonable shelter with moderate winds from E or S but is completely open with anything N or W in the wind. It is also quite shallow and it is necessary to anchor some way out to find good depths.

Anchor in 4.0 - 5.0 metres about 100 metres offshore. The holding is good in sand and weed. The anchorage should only be used in settled weather.
