Zirje is the largest of the islands lying off the Adriatic coast near Sibenik, but it still measures only 11 km by 2.5 km (6 ½ miles by 1 ½ miles). The coastline of the island has a number of sheltered anchorages easily visited on your yacht charter.
The main village, called Zirje Luka is a traditional and authentic fishing village that has changed little in hundreds of years and has only a few small shops. Life goes on here as it has done for centuries, entirely unaffected by tourism. About a kilometre’s walk away from here lies the island’s principal port of Luka Muna from where the ferry to the mainland runs.
Yachts can tie up on the quayside where there is a single restaurant catering to visiting charterers. Uval Stupica Vela is the island’s most popular anchorage as it is well sheltered and very scenic – an idyllic spot to while away a few quiet hours. There are other anchorages at Uvala Tratinska and Uvala Mikavica, the latter a deserted inlet with a quay used by the odd tripper boat and visiting charterer during the summer months.
