Luka Susak



The steeple of the village church to locate the port.
Areas of shallow overflow points N and S of the harbor.
The submerged ruins of the old breakwater extending into the NE of the end of the pier in ruins are a danger to the harbor entrance.

There are less than 1.5 m of water on these "pitfalls".
The handle of the S port is shallow.
The port is very popular with tour boats, and during the day, it may even be impossible to enter.
The large open bay on N, about 1 / 2 M in the E port is an ideal anchorage to spend the lunch hour, sandy bottom of resilience.
In the port protection is good except when I wind. Do not try to return to port by strong NE wind.

Le clocher de l'église du village permet de localiser le port.

Des zones de hauts-fonds débordent des pointes N et S du port.

Les ruines submergées du vieux brise-lames s'étendant dans le NE de l'extrémité du môle en ruines constituent un danger à l'entrée du port.

Il y a moins de 1,5 m d'eau sur ces "écueils".
L'anse du S du port est peu profonde.

Le port est très fréquenté par les bateaux d'excursion, et pendant la journée, il peut même s'avérer impossible d'y pénétrer.
La grande baie ouverte au N, à environ 1/2 M dans l'E du port constitue un mouillage idéal pour y passer l'heure du déjeuner, fond de sable de bonne tenue.
Dans le port la protection est bonne sauf en cas de vent d'E. Il ne faut pas essayer de rentrer dans le port par fort vent de NE.
