Drage inlet from E

The small hamlet of Drage lies at the head of an inlet on the NE side of the island of in Croatia, just half a mile N of the harbour of Veli Iz. Most of the shore around the inlet has been quayed and two short jetties built out from the N side. It is possible for a yacht to anchor moor to one of the two jetties or anchor off in the inlet with a line ashore. Shelter here is good in all but E or SE winds.

There are no dangers in the immediate approach to Drage. See Veli Iz for details on the wider approach, especially from the S. Depths in the inlet range from 6.0 - 7.0 at the entrance to 2.0 - 3.0 metres at the end of the outer jetty.


Zadar is the nearest all-year round port of entry, or Šibenik if arriving from S. During the summer, Sali on Dugi Otok and Primošten on the mainland are also ports of entry.


There are two mooring options for a visiting yacht in Drage in the harbour or anchoring off.
