Zaljev Rasa

Zaljev Rasa



The large natural inlet Zaljev Rasa offers the best protection of all sectors of the entire E coast of Istria, while the Bora blows strongly here. This bay is sinking into the earth near 6M, between Rt Ubac and Rt Mulac. The Rijeka Rasa flows into the bottom, creating a current that is sensitive even in the entry.
At Brisica, basically, there are docks for cargo ships.
No danger in the approach. The channel is marked by lights.

It provides several well sheltered anchorages on its eastern side.

La grande baie naturelle Zaljev Rasa offre la meilleur protection de tous les secteurs de toute la côte E de l'Istrie, bien que la Bora souffle ici avec force. Cette baie s'enfonce dans la terre sur près de 6M, entre Rt Ubac et Rt Mulac. La Rijeka Rasa se jette dans le fond, créant un courant qui est sensible même dans l'entrée.
A Brisica, au fond, il y a des quais pour les cargos.

Aucun danger dans l'approche. Le chenal est balisé par des feux.
Elle offre quelques bons mouillages abrités sur son côté E.
