Splitska harbour from NE

The harbour of Splitska lies on the N coast of the island of Brač in Croatia, two miles E of the ferry port of Supetar and one mile W of Postira. The harbour has a long history, being the principal harbour used for the transport of the stone used to build the palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian in Split at the beginning of the 4th century AD. The bay of U. Splitska divides into two inlets, the E one of which contains the main harbour and the W cove offers a narrow but useful anchorage. The harbour and anchorage are both well sheltered in all but winds from NW round NE, in which they both quickly become uncomfortable and, if strong, untenable.

The immediate approach to Splitska is free of dangers. There is a light structure on the E headland of the inlet. Depths in the inlet are 8.0 - 10.0 metres and at the town quay in the E branch of the inlet 3.0 – 4.0 metres. The shelter is good in most conditions, but poor with any winds from NW round to NE, when it is best to head to Pucisca or the anchorage of Uvala Luka.


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

The E branch of the inlet where the town lies is quayed around its head. There are numerous small craft moorings along the inner part of the harbour and visiting yachts usually berth on the quay further out, where depths are 3.0 – 4.0 metres.

The northernmost part of this quay has three orange mooring buoys with lines tailed back to the quay, which can be used by yachts of up to 12 metres but are too close in for larger vessels. The next 50 metres S is equipped with seven laid moorings in depths of around 3.0 – 3.5 metres. Finally, the projecting part of the quay further S from here (in front of the cafe) has no mooring lines but space for 2-3 yachts to lie alongside (again, in 3.0 – 3.5 metres). Shelter on the quay is good in winds from W through S to NE but berths here quickly become uncomfortable in even moderate winds from WNW round to NNE.
Splitska inner harbour is usually full of local boats

Anchorage icon U. Zastup [[Splitska#U. Zastup|U. Zastup]] 43°22.749'N, 016°36.016'E

The W branch of the inlet is a useful anchorage in all but moderate to strong northerly winds. Depths here range from 10 - 12 metres at the entrance to 3.0 - 4.0 metres at the head.

Anchor in suitable depths wherever you can find space. Holding is good in sand and weed. The shelter is good in all but strong N or NE winds.

The parish church is a conspicuous sight on the waterfront. Originally built in the 13th century, the current church is a Baroque specimen from the 16th and 17th centuries. Inside is an altarpiece painted by the Venetian artist Leadro Bassano in 1577. In the Rasohe stone quarry near the town is a relief carving of Heracles thought to have been carved by slaves working the quarry during Roman times.
