Chart of Luka

The bay and small harbour of Luka lie on the SE coast of the island of Dugi Otok off the mainland coast of Croatia, five miles NW of the settlement of [Sali]. The hamlet and its small quay are located at the head of a mile-long inlet open NW but protected from E by the long islet of Luski Otok. The quay has been developed for yachting tourism, with alongside moorings and water and electricity points. Berths are suitable for shallow or moderate draft yachts only. Shelter here is good in all conditions but strong NW winds.

There are no dangers in the immediate approach to Luka from N. Approaching from the S, it is possible to save nearly two miles by passing through the narrow channel between Luski Otok and the headland of Rt Gubac. Depths here are just over 3.0 metres, but the channel should only be used in settled weather. Alternatively, pass N of Luski Otok before heading into the bay.


Sali is the closest seasonal port of entry. The nearest year-round port of entry is Zadar.


Luka from SW

Visiting yachts berth alongside the quay at the N end of the village, where there are depths of 2.0 - 3.0 metres. There are water and electricity points along the quay. Shelter is good in winds from all directions except NW.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



If the quay is full, it is possible to anchor off NW of the harbour in 8.0 - 10.0 metres. Holding here is moderate to good in sand and weed with some rocks.
