Otok Premuda Zadar



Premuda is located northwest of Otok Skarda which it is separated by a channel about 0.9 m wide (Premuda Vrata). The tips of each side of the channel are overwhelmed shoals and should not be approached too closely.

The coast is home to 2 W moorings and a small port and there is a pier for the ferry in Uvala Loza E. By Bora  the Ferry dock is at Luka Krijal, the other side of the island.

The village of Premuda is on a hillside between Luka and Krijal Uvala Loza.

Premuda is famous for its diving spots. Siroka bay, on the SW coast of Premuda, is a famous point of diving. The famous cave, named "Cathedral" is in this bay.

Premuda se situe au NW de Otok Skarda dont elle est séparée par un chenal d'environ 0,9 M de large (Premuda Vrata). Les pointes de chaque côté du chenal sont débordées de hauts-fonds et ne doivent pas être approchées de trop près.

Parmi les nombreuses épaves de Premuda il y a celle de Szent Istvan située à quelques miles au large. Ce fameux bateau appartenait à la flotte de Teggethoff de la marine austro-hongroise. La flotte de Teggethoff était composée de 4 navires: Sz Istvan, Prinz Eugen, Teggethoff et Virbus Unitis. Le navire Szent Istvan est le seul d'entre eux qui n'ait pas coulé.
