The small island of Levrnaka lies off the SW coast of the island of Kornat in the Kornati Islands group of Croatia. It is separated from Kornat by a channel just 200 metres wide at its narrowest point. The island offers just two anchorages, offering good shelter in N and S winds respectively, one of which also has mooring buoys and a restaurant during the season. As part of the Kornati National Park, a daily permit is required to visit the island. Ashore, the island is largely barren and uninhabited except for the restaurant staff during the season.

Buoy icon U. Anica [[Levrnaka#U. Anica|U. Anica]] (U. Levrnaka) 43°49.390'N, 015°15.221'E

This is a long and deep inlet entered from the NW side of the island. Depths in the inlet are considerable - over 20 metres in places - and, if anchoring, it is necessary to take lines ashore as you will be dropping in 15-18 metres. Shelter in the inlet is excellent in all but NW winds.

Danger: There is a sunken wreck at the head of the inlet which needs to be avoided when mooring.

A better option here:

  • to pick up one of the buoys at the SW end of the inlet
  • or go bows/stern-to jetty near the restaurant at the head of the bay (the staff are friendly and will assist in mooring if needed) - berths for approx. 20 sailing boats.

Two restaurants ashore during the season. The one at the head of the bay (called "Levrnaka") has freshly caught fish and an aquarium with live seafood.

Also supplies electricity in the evening, and water (for a charge: 75 kunas for 100 liters).

A walking path leads to U. Lojena on the other side of the island with a shingle and sand beach.

Anchorage icon U. Lojena [[Levrnaka#U. Lojena|U. Lojena]] 43°49.166'N, 015°14.875'E

U. Lojena lies on the S side of Levrnaka, separated from the anchorage on the N side by a narrow isthmus. A less busy anchorage than its near neighbour, U. Lojena is a better option in NW winds but is completely open to the S.

Anchor at the head of the inlet in 6.0 - 8.0 metres. Holding is good in sand.

No facilities but it is possible to walk over the isthmus to one of the restaurants in the U. Anica.

Note: U. Lojena is not an official anchorage.

There are no permanent settlements on Levrnaka, the sparsely scattered houses being occupied seasonally by fishermen or other owners from the mainland or adjoining islands. Most of the summer residents consists of the restaurant owners and their families. There are no restrictions on walking ashore, but bear in mind that most of the land is private property.
