Zdrelac harbour breakwater from NW

The hamlet of Zdrelac lies on the NE coast of the island of Pašman in Croatia, just under a mile SE of the Prolaz Mali Ždrelac, the channel dividing Pasman from its close neighbour, Ugljan. There is a small harbour off the hamlet, formed by an L-shaped E breakwater and short W one 100 metres to the north. Like most of the harbours along this coast, Zdrelac is relatively shallow and only accessible to shallow and moderate draft yachts.

There are no dangers in the immediate approach to Zdrelac, other than the relative shallowness of the depths in the approach, which decrease from 4.0 metres off the W breakwater to just over 2.5 metres at the head of the inner, E breakwater. The shelter is good in winds from W round to S, but the harbour is open N and E.


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.


Berthing options in Zdrelac harbour are limited. The best depths of 2.5 metres are at the end of the ‘dogleg’ E breakwater, just inside the port marker on the end of it. However, this position is regularly used by fishing and other commercial vessels and you may be asked to move. Alternatively, moor alongside on the inner side of the breakwater if there is space. Again, this is often used by fishing boats. Shelter here is good except with strong N or E winds.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



It is possible to anchor off in the harbour in 3.0 - 4.0 metres, being careful not to obstruct access to the mini harbour inside the breakwater. Holding here is moderate to good in sand and weed. The shelter is good except in strong N or E winds.




Few provisions store in the village.

Eating out

Café/bar and restaurant ashore.


Buses to Pašman (town) and other local destinations.


Places to Visit

Zdrelac village is in a pretty setting

Zdrelac is a sleepy little hamlet in a quite attractive setting, but there is nothing of tourist interest.
