Rogoznica from N

The harbour and marina of Rogoznica are situated on the Adriatic coast of Croatia, five miles SE of Primošten and 15 miles W of Trogir. Like many of the settlements along this coast, it was originally sited on an island and walled to defend it from Turkish and other invaders. In more recent times, the island was connected to the mainland by a causeway. Today Rogoznica is a popular tourist resort and, in view of its good shelter, a popular port of call for visiting yachts.

Cruisers have the option of mooring on the quay on the W side of Rogoznica island (where, however, depths are only about 2.0 metres), berthing in the 450-berth Marina Frapa, or picking up one of the 16 mooring buoys in the large bay to the E of Rogoznica island. The shelter is excellent in most parts of the bay, although the anchorage can become uncomfortable in strong southerlies when the small village of Razanj at the southern end of the bay offers better shelter.

Other than the usual numerous small islets off the coast, there are no hazards in the approach to the bay of Rogoznica. After entering the bay, the island on which the village of Rogoznica stands will be clearly identifiable extending from the N shore into the bay. Turn to port, leaving the island to starboard, if you intend to berth in the marina or moor on the quay; if intending to pick up one of the mooring buoys or to anchor, turn to port after passing the island and proceed N into the large bay to the E of Rogoznica village.

Rogoznica is an attractive village to explore, with several mediaeval churches and excellent views over the bay from its waterfront. The surrounding area has numerous coastal walks and tracks to explore among the thick pine forests along the coast. Behind the marina is an unusual seawater lake, Dragon’s Eye, formed by a collapsed sea cave.
