Uvala Rabac est une grande baie bien abritée contre les vents d'W et de NW, avec des fonds de bonne tenue. Les vents du S et SE y soufflent avec violence et la Bora y pénètre par grosses rafales.
On peut mouiller au milieu de la baie, par 12 à 15 m ou dans le NW de celle-ci par 3 à 7 m.

Le village de Rabac (Rabaz), entouré de grands hôtels, est sur la rive NE de la baie.

Devant la partie S du village, un quai offre 3 à 3,5m d'eau. Une jetée longue de 100 m est enracinée sur ce quai. On trouve 4,5 m d'eau à son extrémité. On peut s'amarrer le long du quai par 2 à 5 m, à l'écart de l'emplacement du Ferry au S du quai.

Le long de la rive W de la baie, il existe un poste d'amarrage pour grands navires en face des silos à bauxite. Ce poste est dangereux quand souffle la Bora.
