Le petit port de Vrbnik est situé à l'intérieur d'une baie, protégé du NE par un brise-lames construit depuis la rive E qui ne laisse qu'un étroit chenal d'entrée.

Vrbnik, en haut d'une falaise de 48 m, à l'E du port est surmontée par le clocher d'une église. Cette vieille ville méditerranéenne est remarquable du large.

Il n'y a aucun danger dans les abords immédiats. L'entrée est étroite, il ne faut pas tenter d'y accéder par forte Bora.

On peut amarrer par l'avant ou l'arrière sur le côté intérieur du brise-lames. Il y a de nombreux corps-morts au S du port qui est totalement protégé.
