Situé à l'endroit où les îles de Cres et de Losinj ne sont séparées que par un étroit canal (Losinjski Kanal) enjambé par un pont tournant de faible hauteur, qui s'ouvre 2 fois par jour, à 9h et à 17 h.

L'accès est déconseillé par Bora ou Sirocco forts.

On peut mouiller en portant une amarre à terre dans la petite baie d'Uvala Bijar, au N d'Osor. Les fonds sont trop importants et pentus pour que l'on mouille seulement sur son ancre.

Il ne faut pas serrer de trop près la pointe N (feu) pour éviter une avancée rocheuse.

Il est possible de s'amarrer le long du quai N dans l'entrée au N du canal. Il y a plus de 3 m d'eau.
Il est possible de mouiller au S, au bord du chenal ou de mouiller en portant une amarre sur la cale de mise à l'eau.

Protégé de tous les vents. Le quai au N du canal est exposé aux vents du N et NW. Les emplacements au S du canal sont exposés au vent et à la mer de SE.
