CERVAR (45° 17′ N; 13° 36′ E), a long narrow inlet SE of point Zub. It forms two branches Lunga and Sveta Marina.
Approach: Vessels approaching from the north will see a lighthouse (single-story building with white and red sector light) on Zub point, a holiday settlement S of the lighthouse, the buildings of the hotel center and the Cervar-Porat marina in the S part of Lunga. The large rocky shoal on the S side of the entrance to the inlet, the northern part of which is called Veliki skolj and the southern Civran, is dangerous for all vessels. NW of Veliki skolj shoal there is cylindrical green buoy (green light) topped by a cone pointing upwards. Both shoals are easily spotted because of the waves breaking over the rocks. On the SW edge of the Civran shoal is a yellow buoy with a black band (white light) in the middle, topped with two black cones, their points upwards. The shoals are in the red sectors of the lighthouses on Zub point and coastal light on Barbaran cliff, and must be left to starboard on entering Cervar. The marina should be approached by a course in the middle of the inlet.
