SUPETARSKA DRAGA - ISLAND OF RAB
SUPETARSKA DRAGA (44° 48.5'N; 14° 42.5'E), town (pop. 1,114 in 1991), cove and marina in the NW part of Rab, some 2.5 M southeast of Sorinj point.
Approach: Care should be taken of the reef some 50m N of the islet of Sridnjak, SW of the entrance to the cove. The reef is visible only at low tide and a choppy sea; it is marked by a concrete column.
Mooring: The cove is exposed to N and NW winds, the bora and the sirocco are violent in it but do not cause a sea and are not dangerous for yachts lying at anchor. The best anchorage for smaller yachts (sheltered from NW winds) is in the middle of Dumici cove (S of the islet of Sajlovac). Larger yachts can anchor in the middle of Supetarska draga (depths 2128 m).
Sights: The disused Benedictine monastery of St Peter, established in 1059, abandoned in 16 C. Sv Petar church dating from the foundation period.
