The harbour of Sveti Martin

The bay and harbour of Sveti Martin (Saint Martin) lie on the E coast of the island of Losinj, one mile NW of the harbour of Veli Lošinj and 11 miles S of the Osor canal. It is a convenient alternative port of call in suitable conditions for a visit to the main island town of Mali Lošinj, just over half a mile NW across a narrow spit of land when transiting the Osor canal. Like Veli Lošinj and Rovenska, the other ports along the E coast, the harbour becomes untenable with strong N winds.

There are no dangers in the approach to Sveti Martin. However, take care in the approach from N to give the headland immediately N of the harbour a good clearance as there are rocks off it. Shelter in the harbour is good from all directions except NE and E, when it becomes uncomfortable and, if strong, untenable.


The nearest port of entry is Mali Lošinj.


The tiny inner harbour of Sveti Martin

The inner harbour is shallow and usually filled with local boats. The best option for a visiting yacht is to berth stern or bows-to on the short breakwater that encloses the harbour on the N side. Depths here are 4.0 metres. You will probably need to use your anchor here, being careful to avoid the permanent moorings.

Places to Visit

The village is quiet and not so picturesque as its near neighbours, Veli Losinj and Rovenska. However, it is usually quieter and Mali Losinj is only a half hour’s walk away over the spine of the island.
