Šćedro Island is a small island lying two miles S of the small harbour of Zavala on the S coast of Hvar Island in Croatia. Šćedro used to host a Dominican monastery for over 300 years, but the monks departed in the 18th century and today the only inhabitants are a few holidaymakers and the staff of the restaurants in the bay of the former monastery, U. Manastir, and the inlet of Luka Lovisce half a mile W.

There are no harbours on the island, just the two main anchorages on its N side and a few coves on its SE side which are suitable, in settled weather, as anchorages.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



There are two anchorages on the island: U. Manastir and Luka Lovisce, both just half a mile apart on the N coast of the island.

On the SE coast of Scedro are several coves which look like good potential anchorages or lunch stops in, settled weather.

Anchorage of U. Manastir from SW

U. Manastir

Anchorage icon U. Manastir [[Šćedro#U. Manastir|U. Manastir]] 43°05.712'N, 016°42.505'E
U. Manastir is a ‘dog leg’ inlet which takes its name from the former Dominican monastery at the head of the bay, the ruins of which can still be seen today. There is a tiny harbour at the head of the inlet, which has depths only suitable for small motor boats. Visiting yachts anchor off in the inlet in depths of 5.0 - 6.0 metres. The holding is good in sand and weed. Alternatively, if eating ashore, a yacht can pick up one of the mooring buoys towards the head of the inlet, which are owned by a restaurant. Depths at the buoys are 3.5 - 4.0 metres. The shelter is good in all conditions except strong N or NW winds.
Anchorage of Luka Lovisce from SW

Anchorage icon Luka Lovište [[Šćedro#Luka Lovište|Luka Lovište]] 43°05.608'N, 016°41.994'E
Luka Lovište is an attractive anchorage just half a mile W of U. Manastir, with several snug coves in which it is possible to find shelter from all except N winds. Anchor in the cove at the head or in one of the two coves on either side in 8.0 - 9.0 metres. The holding in all three coves is good in sand and weed. There are a few stone bollards if you wish to take lines ashore (which is often necessary during the season as Luka Lovisce is a popular anchorage). There are several restaurants ashore during the summer.
