Yachts moored in Postira bay

The harbour of Postira or Postire lies on the N coast of the island of Brač in Croatia, three miles E of the ferry port of Supetar.

It is a pleasant stop when cruising the N coast of the island in settled weather, and protection here is better following the construction of a new W breakwater and yacht quay on the W side of the harbour. However, but the harbour still becomes uncomfortable in fresh to strong winds from NW and N, from which it offers only partial shelter.

The immediate approach to Postira is free of dangers. The end of the breakwater is marked with a white light tower with a conspicuous domed red top. Depths in the harbour are around 5.0 - 6.0 metres and on the new yacht quay 4.0 metres. The shelter is good in most conditions, but poor with any winds from NW or N. It is probably untenable in a strong bora.


Split is the nearest all-year round port of entry. During the summer, Hvar, Vis and, if arriving from N, Primošten on the mainland also have ports of entry.


Yachts now moor on the new yacht quay

Visiting yachts now berth as directed stern or bows-to on laid moorings on the new yacht quay on the W side of the harbour. Harbour staff will help with mooring. The quay here is of substantial construction, with strong stainless steel bollards and moorings for 21 yachts, most of which are supplied with two mooring lines. Depths at the quay are 4.0 metres along its whole length. The quay is sheltered by a new W breakwater, which offers reasonable protection from N and NW, although some swell still creeps in.

Alternatively, and if all mooring lines are taken, a yacht may be directed to lie alongside the inner side of the W breakwater, where there is space for 2-3 yachts (if the fishing boats are not occupying them).

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



Anchoring in the harbour is forbidden in view of the numerous mooring buoys. It is also no longer allowed in the bay W of the harbour.

See Brac Anchorages island page for alternatives.

The smart new man-made beach at Postire

Postira is basically a working town with only a modest amount of tourism. For some people, that constitutes its main charm. However, tourism is looking up with the creation of a smart new bathing area on the NE side of the harbour.
