The town of Tribunj lies on the Adriatic coast of Croatia, six miles NW of Šibenik and just over a mile W of Vodice. Like many towns along this coast, it was built on a narrow and easily defended peninsula in the 16th century to provide protection against Turkish incursions. Originally walled, the village is today connected to the mainland by a narrow stone bridge.

The town has always been an important fishing centre, but this is slowly being overtaken by tourism, especially with the construction of the Adriatic Islands Group Marina Tribunj to the east of the peninsula in 2004.

Marina Tribunj offers 220 berths for yachts up to 25.0 metres in depths of up to 4.0 metres.

The town is easily identified by the church steeple on the top of the island on which the town sits. Tribunj is sheltered from the west by the small, circular island of Lukovnik and the long, thin island of Logorun.

While shallow draft local boats use these passages, they are not recommended for yachts, especially with any swell running.

Approach from E and S: there are no dangers there.

Access to the marina is between Logorun island and a long breakwater protecting the marina from S.

It is possible for a yacht in settled conditions to moor stern/bows-to the quay on the W side of the island, where depths are around 3.0 metres. However, this position is very exposed to the prevailing NW winds and should only be considered if the weather is settled enough.

Laid moorings, water and electricity posts are along the quay.

The old town of Tribunj

The old town, built on an island connected to the mainland via a narrow causeway, is delightful if rather touristy. There are some very upmarket restaurants along the waterfront, which reflect the upmarket aspirations of the marina (and, indeed, its berthing charges).

The walk along the coast to Vodice is very pleasant.
