SALDUN - ISLAND OF CIOVO
SALDUN (43° 30'N; 16° 13'E), spacious bay in the island of Ciovo in the E part of the Bay of Trogir.
Approach: Landmarks include Vlaska Hill (elevation 453 m), the belfry in Donji Seget village (on the N coast), a white conical tower on Celice rock (flashing white) at the entarnce to the Bay of Trogir, a green conical light-bouy (green light) off Cubrijan point. Vessels entering the bay through the passage between Okruk point and Celice Rock should keep on the alignment on a bearing of 65°, of the belfry of the Sv Mihovil church (St Michael) and the belfry of the Cathedral (both in the town of Trogir) in order to avoid the shoal patches extending off Okruk point.
A floating dock owned by the Brodogradjevna industrija Trogir shipyard is moored 750m SE of the light on Cubrijan point. Caution should be exercised E, S and W of the dock. Between Celice rock and the coast there is a shoal (depth 4 m).
Mooring: The bay is exposed to winds blowing from the SW quadrant. Although strongly felt in the bay, the bora and sirocco do not raise big waves. Yachts with a draft up to 2m can moor alongside the breakwater of Seget but only during the bora or in settled weather. Good anchorage ground for larger yachts 800m S of Cubrijan point (depth 28 m). Smaller vessels can anchor in the inlets in the S and E coast of Saldun Bay, the best anchorage ground for such vessels being that in Razetinovac inlet.
Sights: Finds from Roman times. In the village Ciovo the Early Romanesque chapel Gospa kraj mora (Our Lady by the Sea) with a 15 C polyptych, the Dominican convent and Sv Kriz church (Holy Cross) with cloister, Gothic choir stalls.
