The bay is protected from N by an island joined to Losinj by a sandy spit. Shelter is good in winds from W and N but poor in southerlies and strong NE winds. The best anchorage is at the head of the bay just off the beach in depths of 5.0 - 7.0 metres. Holding is good in sand and weed. The surroundings are attractive and wooded, but the anchorage is surrounded by holiday villas.
