NOVA POVLJANA - ISLAND OF PAG
NOVA POVLJANA (44° 21'N; 15° 06'E), village (pop. 678 in 1991) and cove on the SW coast of the island of Pag.
Approach: Landmarks: the red round iron tower with a column and gallery (red light) on Dubrovnik point, the hotel complex and the chapel of Sv Nikola on the E coast of the cove.
Mooring: The harbour is well sheltered from the most frequent winds, the bora and sirocco, but is open to winds from the SW and NW quadrants. Vessels drawing up to 3m can moor on the inner side of the breakwater. With the bora and sirocco blowing, larger vessels can anchor only in the middle of the cove and smaller ones closer to the chapel of Sv Nikola.
Facilities: Provisions and water in the village of Povljana, 0.8 km inshore.
Sights: Sv Nikola (early medieval, fragments of frescoes) and Sv Juraj (18 C) churches.
