U. Knez from the NE

The harbour of U. Knez is situated half a mile NW of the settlement of Mali Iz on the NE side of the island of in Croatia. The harbour consists of a small, V-shaped inlet quayed at its head and three short stone jetties along which are small craft moorings. Visiting yachts can moor up up stern or bows-to the E side of the southernmost jetty, using the five mooring lines provided or pick up one of the mooring buoys laid by the two restaurants in the inlet. The inlet is protected from the N by the islet of Knezak but is open to winds from the E and the SE.

There are no dangers in the immediate approach to U. Knez. If approaching fromthe N, it is possible in settled weather to pass between the islet of O. Knezak and island, where there are least depths of 3.5 metres. However, in unsettled weather or with any swell running it is better to pass outside O. Knezak. Depths in the approach to the harbour are 5.0 - 6.0 metres and on the jetties around 2.0 metres.


Zadar is the nearest all-year round port of entry, or Šibenik if arriving from S. During the summer, Sali on Dugi Otok and Primošten on the mainland are also ports of entry.

Yachts berth on the E side of the short southern breakwater, where there are five laid moorings in depths of 2.0 - 4.0 metres (the shallower berths being towards the shore). The shoreline shoals abruptly here and care is needed if using the berths closest to the shore. Alternatively, if there is space, it is possible to moor alongside the W side of the breakwater in 3.0 - 4.0 metres.

Places to Visit

The village is in an attractive setting, but its main appeal to the visiting yachtsman is the two restaurants in the inlet. There is a good walk up to the church of Sv. Marije on the hill to the S of the inlet, with superb views over Mali Iz to neighboring islands of Ugljan and Pašman.
