Obonjan is a small island in central Dalmatia (Croatia) which is separated from the island of Zmajan by a 0.5 nM passage. The island of Krapanj is 3 nM E and the island of Zlarin is 2.5 nM W of Obonjan. The top of the island is 56 metres above sea level.

On the E side of the island, there is a small harbour with an even smaller jetty.

During the times of Socialist Yugoslavia, the island used to be nicknamed "Otok Mladosti" (Island of Youth) as it was a popular scouts' venue. Later, during the Independence War refugees inhabited it. Then in 2015 after some years of uncertainty the island was bought by a group of British entrepreneurs to be converted into a resort with a techno music venue.

A berth or two might be found on the short pier with a red beacon at the N side of the harbour. In season a regular ferry makes a stop there. Actually, it's unknown if the current owners of the island would allow yachts to moor there. Other piers in the harbour are not suitable for mooring.

The mooring has protection from W. The depth at the quay is about 2.5 m.
