Igrane bay from NE

The bay of Igrane lies on the Adriatic coast of Croatia, four miles SE of the harbour of Podgora and 12 miles NW of the small harbour and anchorage of Gradac. The island of Hvar is situated eight miles due W of the bay. Igrane is a sleepy village with a modest tourism trade and a fine sandy beach.

Visiting yachts can anchor in the bay in 6.0 - 8.0 metres in settled weather, but Igrane is completely open to winds from the SW round to the E.

There are no dangers in the approach from the N. If approaching from the S, note that there is a rocky shoal inshore 1.5 miles SE of the bay. The village church on the hill behind the harbour has a conspicuous square tower.


It may be possible to tie up alongside on the inside of the short pier on the W side of the bay if it is clear. Depths along the pier range from 4.0 metres at the end to 2.0 metres at the root. There is a tiny harbour just N of the pier, which is only suitable for small day boats.

Most yachts anchor off.

Visiting yachts will normally have to anchor off in 6.0 - 8.0 metres, clear of the swimming area. The holding is good in sand and mud. The anchorage becomes uncomfortable in strong winds from any direction and untenable in strong southerlies.
