Being located in Zadar ( the oldest town in Croatia) which lies in the central part of the Adriatic Coast of Croatia, in North Dalmatia, makes this marina a popular spot. The city of Zadar is 160 km north of Split and 290 km south of Rijeka, and together with Dubrovnik it is home to Croatia’s four major harbors.

Situated half a mile north of the Zadar harbour, and 400 m S of Marina Borik, Marina Vitrenjak is known among sailors for the excellent shelter from all winds.

Visiting yachts are also welcome if there is available space. In July and August -the busiest time of the season - the marina is usually fully booked.
