Martinšćica lies on the SW coast of the island of Cres in Croatia, 10 miles N of the narrow channel at Osor which separates Cres from the island of Losinj immediately to the W. The village and its harbour are situated at the NW corner of a wide bay on the E side of a peninsula which shelters the bay from N and W winds. The bay is, however, completely open to the S. The harbour is shallow, with maximum depths of 2.5 metres, and usually filled with fishing boats. Most visiting yachts will need to anchor off in the bay.

The harbour of Martinšćica is shallow and usually filled with fishing and motor boats. It may be possible for a shallow draft yacht or catamaran to lie alongside or stern/bows-to the jetty on the NE side of the harbour, where depths are around 2.5 metres. However, the harbourmaster here often turns yachts away during the summer.
