More notes about the marina

Marina Umag is the most northerly of the ACI government-owned chain of marinas. Situated at the NW corner of the bay of Umag, it is the first marina and harbour a yacht will encounter on crossing the border from Slovenia on the way south and is a port of entry. It lies around six miles SW of the Slovenian port of Portoroz and ten miles N of the Croatian harbour of Novigrad. Marina Umag offers 494 berths for yachts up to 20 metres in depths of up to 5.0 metres. It can also accommodate around 90 yachts on land for winter storage.


Contact Marina Umag on VHF channel 17 prior to entry (unless clearing in). Alternatively, telephone or e-mail to enquire about berthing or advance reservations.


The bay of Umag is easily distinguished by a large cement works about one mile S of and on the N side by the large hotel complex of the Hotel Adriatic. In the approach from N, the dangerous rocky shoal of Secca Peklena extends for 300 metres off the headland at the N end of the bay; it is marked with a red-painted pillar mark. Closer in to the harbour entrance there is a further shoal patch just off the northern breakwater, which is marked with a S cardinal mark. There are additional isolated dangers in the approach from S and yacht should keep at least half a mile offshore to avoid them. The harbour is entered from SW on a course of around 60 degrees between a pair of port and starboard buoys. Depths in the entrance are only around 4.0 metres and therefore Umag should not be entered in strong onshore winds. Once inside the harbour, pass between the end of the marina breakwater and the green starboard buoy marking some further shallows. From here, turn to port to enter the marina.


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


Berthing assistance available. Yachts berth on one of six concrete piers and associated quays. Laid moorings at all berths.
