Uvala Pribinja Hvar

Uvala Pribinja Hvar



On the N shore of O. Hvar, near its Western end is the large inlet of Uvala Pribinja. This bay has two arms, to the W is the harbour of Vira and to the E is uvala Pribinja.

The eastern arm provides an excellent, sheltered anchorage in a very pleasant surrounding.

At the back of the bay you will find 4 mooring buoys owned by and maintained by the Konoba Ringo.

The buoys leave no space for anchoring in the inner bay, so those wanting to drop a hook would need to do so further out in depths of between 8-15 metres. It is recommended to take a line ashore for additional security, particularly in a Bora.

Shelter:Good all around shelter can be obtained in various parts of Uvala Pribinja and Vira, depending on where the weather is coming from.

Uvala Pribinja Hvar
Sur la rive nord de O. Hvar, près de son extrémité occidentale est l'entrée de la grande Uvala Pribinja. Cette baie a deux bras, à l'Ouest se trouve le port de Vira et à l'E est située la baie de Pribinja.
Le bras oriental offre un excellent mouillage abrité dans un très agréable environnement.
Au fond de la baie, vous trouverez 4 bouées d'amarrage appartenant et gérées par le Ringo Konoba (restaurant).
Les bouées ne laissent aucun espace pour l'ancrage dans la baie intérieure, de sorte que ceux qui veulent déposer l'ancre  divent le faire plus loin dans des profondeurs variant entre 8-15 mètres. Il est recommandé de prendre une ligne à terre pour plus de sécurité, en particulier en cas de Bora.
Abris: Bon dans les différentes parties de Uvala Pribinja et Vira, et dépend d'où vient le vent.
