Silo harbour from the N

The village and small harbour of Silo is situated on the NE coast of the island of Krk in Croatia, two miles SE of the landlocked inlet of Zaton Soline and and a similar distance SW of the mainland town of Crikvenica. The harbour is at the head of a wide bay, Uvala Stipanja, which is protected on its E side by a long, narrow spit. There is a tiny and shallow marina at the root of the spit, which is invariably filled to capacity with local motor boats, and a small harbour E of the village itself which offers some protection from northerly winds behind a short breakwater.

Promontory of Rt Silo

There are no dangers in the approach to Silo, but note that if approaching from S or E that a shallow patch extends off Rt Silo, the spit that encloses the bay on the E side, for some 200 metres.


Silo is not a port of entry. The nearest port of entry is Rijeka.

Harbour icon Šilo Harbour [[Silo#Šilo Harbour|Šilo Harbour]] 45°08.836'N, 014°39.863'E
The best berth for a visiting yacht (if there is space) is alongside on the S side of the breakwater on the W side of the bay, close to the village of Silo itself. Depths at the breakwater are between 2.5 metres at the root and 4.0 metres at the end. There is underwater rock ballasting in parts. Shelter here is good from most directions, although strong N to NW winds would probably make it untenable.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

Silo Marina - shallow and usually filled by local motor boats.
