MIKAVICA - ISLAND OF ZIRJE
MIKAVICA (43° 40.5'N; 15° 36.5'E), cove on the NW coast of Zirje.
Approach: Shape course for the chapel at the head of the cove. Care should be taken of the shoal (2 m) extending up to 250m S of the islet of Mikavica.
Mooring: The cove is sheltered form S winds but is open to NE and NW winds; W winds cause an unpleasant sea. Yachts drawing up to 2m can moor at the small pier and the bollard in the E part of the cove. The anchorage is in the middle of the cove, closer to the mole (depths 68 m).
Zirje (pop. 207 in 1991), the largest village on the island, is situated in the central part of the island, 5km SE of Mikavica cove.
