Malinska harbour from the N

The harbour of Malinska (or, to give it its full name Malinska-Dubasnica) is situated on the NW coast of the island of Krk in Croatia, around 18 miles by sea NW of the island’s main harbour of Krk Town. The town has a small commercial harbour with a pier and quays where a yacht can usually find space and a long pontoon owned by a leisure development where a yacht may be able to moor. Malinksa lies at the E side of a large bay open to NW and W and would not be a suitable port of call in strong winds from this direction.

The town is easily identified in the approach from N the buildings of the town and the long, sandy spit that fronts a long breakwater providing the harbour with some protection from N. A red buoy marks the end of the breakwater. In the approach from W, be sure not to confuse Malinska harbour with the small harbour a mile SW, which is not suitable for a yacht. Once round the breakwater, if heading for the pier and quay at the SW end of the harbour, avoid the shallow patch 50 metres off the quay which is marked with a black pillar mark.


Malinska is not a port of entry. The nearest port of entry is Mali Losinj on the island of [Losinj]].

The best berth for a visiting yacht (if there is space) is alongside either of the two short piers at the NE and SW sides of the harbour. Depths here are unknown, but large commercial vessels moor here so are likely in excess of 8.0 metres. Alternatively, use your anchor to go bows or stern-to the quay at the SW end of the harbour. There is also a long pontoon running parallel with the shore at the N end of the harbour, which is owned by a hotel and leisure development, and it may be possible to negotiate a berth there.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



It may be possible to drop anchor temporarily off the long pontoon if going ashore for supplies, but Malinska does not offer a suitable overnight anchorage unless the weather is very settled.
