More notes about the marina

Marina Pula lies at the town of the same name, 10 miles N of the extreme southern tip of the Istrian peninsula in Croatia and 17 miles south of the harbour of Rovinj. The marina is owned and operated by the government-owned ACI Club group of marinas, which also operates marinas at Umag and Rovinj on the west and Opatija on the east coast of Istria. Marina Pula offers 213 berths in total for yachts up to 15 metres and in depths of up to 6.0 metres. The marina has one of the most unusual sites in Croatia, right beneath the town’s magnificent 1st century AD Roman amphitheatre.


Call Marina Pula on VHF channel 17 prior to entry. Alternatively, telephone or e-mail to enquire about berthing or advance reservations.


In the approach from N a yacht can either sail outside the Brioni Islands or through the channel separating them from the mainland, which is well marked. The approach from S is straightforward. The entrance to Pula inlet is protected on the S side by a breakwater extending nearly a mile NNW from the southern headland. Sections of the breakwater are damaged and it is important to round the light structure at its end rather than mistake the damaged sections for an entry channel. Once in the harbour, continue SE for a mile, leaving the islands of Katerina and Andrija to port, before turning N, leaving the island of Uljanik, where there is a conspicuous shipyard linked to the mainland by a causeway, to starboard. The marina is half a mile E of the northern tip of Uljanik island. Beware of the shoal ground extending E and S from the tip of the island, the limits of which are marked with four marker buoys. Shelter in the marina is good, although strong W winds make it uncomfortable.


Marina Pula is a port of entry/exit for Croatia. For details see Entrance: Croatia.
