Approach: Shape course for the belfry and chapel on the hill SE of the village and the red round tower with a column and gallery (red light) on the head of the breakwater.
By night approach in the red sector of the light on the breakwater. Skoljic rock is in the red sector of the light on Vnetak point (a round stone tower above the attendant's house).
Mooring: The harbour is sheltered from the sirocco but exposed to SW and NW winds, which send in a big swell.

Yachts drawing up to 3m can moor on the inner side of the breakwater, which is also used by passenger ships.
After the first heralds of W and NW winds leave the cove and go to Podkujna or Vognisca cove on the N coast of the island.
