inlet of Zalyev Raša from Trget

The large natural inlet of Zaljev Raša lies on the E coast of the Istrian peninsula in Croatia, just under 16 miles NE of Cape Kamenjak at its extreme southern tip. The inlet extends for nearly six miles inland and provides several well sheltered anchorages on its eastern side. Best shelter is to be found in the small inlet of Uvala Tunarica on the E side of Zaljev Rasa about three miles from the entrance.

Zaljev Raša entry point/wiki/Zaljev_Ra%C5%A1a#Zaljev_Ra.C5.A1a_entry_pointWorld icon.png Zaljev Raša entry point [[Zaljev Raša#Zaljev Raša entry point|Zaljev Raša entry point]] 44°56.58′N, 14°03.42′E . There are no dangers in the approach, although a heavy swell may be encountered in strong S winds. Shelter once in the inlet is good, although the bora can blow strongly down the inlet. In such circumstances, the small side inlet of Uvala Tunarica offers the best shelter. Other anchorages can be found at the small town of Trget four miles from the entrance or in the bays of Uvala Sebesnica or Uvala Teplica. A south-going current is usually experienced from the Raša river, which flows into the northern end of the inlet.
