Ugljan harbour from NE

The tiny harbour of Ugljan lies on the NE coast of the island of Ugljan two miles from its northernmost tip and five miles NW of Zadar. The harbour is shallow, mostly with depths of 1.0 - 2.0 metres, but the outer breakwater has depths suitable for a shallow to moderate draft yacht to moor. Shelter in the harbour is good from all directions except NE and E. At the N end of the village on the E side of a small cove is a 15th century Franciscan monastery containing an interesting Gothic church and cloisters.

There are no dangers in the approach to harbour of Ugljan from the S, but in the approach from the N there is a rocky spit extending for some 100 metres SE of the headland 500 metres N of the harbour, on which there are a conspicuous monastery and a white cross on the shore end of the spit.

Note: the depths in the bay are little more than 5.0 metres, shelving to 3.0 metres at the harbour entrance. The shore is rocky close in on both sides of the harbour.


The nearest year-round port of entry is Zadar.


The harbour is only suitable for shallow or moderate draft yachts. The only suitable berth is alongside the end of the E breakwater, on the outer, ‘dogleg’ section. Depths here are 2.0 - 2.5 metres. The inner section of the breakwater has only 1.5 - 2.0 metres. The shelter here is good in winds from NW round to SE but poor for NE and E winds.

It is possible in settled weather to anchor in 4.0 - 5.0 metres in the small cove to the N, just inside the headland on which the monastery sits. Holding here is good in sand and the shelter acceptable in light winds. However, the anchorage is completely open to the S.

Note: the cove is a popular swimming area and it is probably unwise to anchor here at busy times.

Places to Visit

The most attractive feature there is the 15th-century Franciscan monastery of St. Jerome on the E side of the small cove N of the village, which contains an interesting Gothic church and Romanesque cloisters. The village itself and Batalaza cove around a kilometre to the NW contain several old villas of the 19th century Zadar nobility.
