Plan of Marina Piskera

Marina Piškera lies on a small islet, Vela Panitula, off the S coast of the island of Piškera in the Kornati archipelago in Croatia. The berths are located at the narrow channel between Piškera and Vela Panitula.

The marina, which opens from 1 April to 31 October only, offers a total of 118 berths for yachts up to 30 metres in depths of up to 3.5 metres. The marina is safe in most wind conditions, but becomes very uncomfortable with strong S winds.

Because of its isolated position, water and electricity are rationed by only being available at restricted hours (and a substantial charge is made).

Location

The marina is situated on the S side of the island of Piškera about two miles SW of the larger island of Kornat in the Kornati archipelago. This is the only marina in the Kornati National Park. The other one in this archipelago -- Marina Žut -- is outside of the park.

Navigation

The approach to Marina Piskera is largely free of dangers, although there are numerous islets and reefs and a large scale chart is needed. From N, a yacht passes through the narrow channel between Piskera and Mala Lavsa islands before turning to starboard to enter the marina from the SE, leaving the islet of Mala Panitula to port. From S, a yacht can either leave Mala Panitula to port on entering or pass between Vela Panitula islet and the reef of Skanji Veli about 150 metres off its SE tip. This channel is very narrow, but depths are 7.0 metres. Shelter inside the marina is good in most conditions, but strong S winds make it very uncomfortable.

Note: The N channel between Piškera and Vela Panitula at the top end of the marina is shallow and rocky and impassable by a yacht.

Berthing

Book your berth instantly in ACI Marina Piskera. This means you can choose available dates and book your berth immediately, without sending a booking request. Berthing assistance available on request.

Visiting yachts berth stern/bows-to at one of six pontoons extending N from the islet of Vela Panitula. Depths on the pontoons range from 2.5 to 3.5 metres. Deeper draft yachts berth on the end of the central pontoons. Laid moorings at all berths. Yachts over 25 metres berth on the reception pontoon.

Facilities

  • Showers

Note: There is also an independent konoba at the Piškera proper just across a narrow passage from the marina. The owner provides a transfer.

None.

Moderate.

Mobile connectivity

While voice connectivity is fine there, the mobile internet, at least for Tele2 SIM, is only 2G (GPRS) and its performance is virtually useless (perhaps due to congestion).

Transportation

None.

Price

For the latest prices see Price Listing.

Note: A berth price includes an entrance fee into the National park which is valid until 10:00 of the next day. The marina also sells the park's tickets at the nominal ("external") price for ones who wants to stay in Kornati after leaving the marina.
