Croatia - your sailing destination
At the anchor
Visited in the Summer 2020, 2021
Quite well protected, depending which corner you chose. Be aware of rocks in the E corner. NW is much better with sand bottom and deep enough to come very close to the shore. In the middle, too deep for anchor to be safe. Big boats only.
No buoys. Good internet.
Island Molat is situated in the North part of Zadar archipelagos . There are 3 villages: Zapuntel, Brgulje and Molat.
Molat is situated between 2 bays on opposite side of the island. On the SW side is a harbour and NE, Jazi beach.
Village has a supermarket and a post office. Supermarket belongs to Studenac chain which you can find on other islands as well. Shop is good and prices are little higher than on land, but much cheaper than other island supermarkets.
Molat harbour is not overcrowded with tourists so it has that special feeling and warmth of the island life. There are couple of restaurants and a bar. Konoba Vrtlac just on the pier and grill Mare in the far end of the bay. We didn’t eat there so can’t recommend any of them. Follow your instinct and nose.
Other village we visited is Brgulje. Same as Molat, main part, with a church is up on the hill and other part is on the sea. There is small shop but with much higher prices. There are couple of nice looking restaurants by the sea.
Brgulje is about 2,5km and Molat 3km from the Podgrabe bay.
Zapuntel is little too far so we left it for some other time.
