Luka Martinscica (Cres)

Characteristics

Description

At the bottom of a large and open bay, protected from all winds, except S.
From the S, we recognize the great Luka Martinscica resort on the coast of the Bay E, and orange-yellow tank of a factory in the west of this complex.
Approaching the N, or from offshore, the campground on Rt Tiha radio and antenna (wearing a red ball) on top of the hill S of camping can locate Martinscica.
You can anchor along the pier by 3-4 m of water to the right of the pier.
You can also anchor in the Bay W, N of the breakwater, by 3-5 m of mud bottom of resilience.
The larger units can anchor the S port.
The cove is protected from W to E by N, but is exposed to winds from the S. The Bora wind gusts here.

Au fond d'une large baie, protégée de tous les vents, sauf du S.
En venant du S, on reconnaîtra Luka Martinscica au grand complexe touristique sur la côte E de la baie, et au réservoirs jaune orangé d'une usine à l'W de ce complexe.

En approchant par le N, ou du large, le terrain de camping sur Rt Tiha et l'antenne radio (coiffée d'une boule rouge) au sommet de la colline au S du camping permettent de localiser Martinscica.

On peut mouiller le long du môle par 3 à 4 m d'eau au droit du môle.
On peut aussi mouiller dans l'W de la baie, au N du brise-lames, par 3 à 5 m sur fond de vase de bonne tenue.
Les grandes unités peuvent mouiller au S du port.

L'anse est protégée de l'W à l'E par le N, mais est exposée au vents du S. La Bora souffle ici en violentes rafales.
