Bay of Zverinac from W

Zverinac Island lies a mile off the NE coast of the island of Dugi Otok in Croatia and two miles W of the island of Sestrunj. Barely 1.6 square miles in size and relatively low-lying, the island supports a population of just under 50 inhabitants, swelled during the summer by holidaymakers and day trippers from the mainland. There is only one settlement on the island, the village of Zverinac, situated on the W coast of the island around a mile N of the town of Bozava on Dugi Otok. The harbour of Zverinac offers good shelter in the prevailing winds but is open S and dangerous in strong S winds.

Visiting yachts berth on the three southernmost of the four jetties off the village of Zverinac.

Shelter on the jetties is good in N and E winds, but the whole bay is open to winds from W round to SE. The inside berths on the jetties offer some protection in S winds, but not if they are very strong.

The northernmost of the three has laid moorings for 6-8 yachts in depths of 8.0 metres. The two jetties to the S have no laid moorings (2012) and yachts need to go alongside on either the outer or inner side.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs



There are no suitable anchorages on Zverinac as depths are mostly too great.

Places to Visit

Although Zverinac village is quite picturesque, there is not much to do on the island. The village contains an 18th-century palace and there are reportedly a few Roman ruins in the cove of U. Poripisce.
