The island of Premuda is a small island, just 9 km long and up to 1 km wide, and covers about 9.2 km2. It is located southwest of Silba island and northwest of Škarda and is the westernmost island belonging to the Zadar Archipelago.
Premuda is surrounded by islets and cliffs, which protect the island from strong winds. It`s overgrown with holm oak and low vegetation, as well as olive trees.
Most of the barren island inhabitants were drawn to faraway places, so today, there are just a few people still living here – a handful of pensioners and some younger people, dedicated to fishing, sheep breeding or tourism. During the summer months, though, the number of the about 50 residents increases up to around 400, when their family and some tourists are coming to pay a visit.
Its beautiful natural coves, clear water, and underwater sights attract sailors and divers.
The island has two ports, northern Loza and southern Krijal. On the road from one to another is a small Premuda village. The island has everything you may need for a relaxing vacation, just two restaurants, two shops, an ambulance, a post office, and a church.
Krijal is the island’s main port, protected from all winds but NW. Anchorage is well protected from Bora and SW but exposed to NW.
Mooring: on the head or from the W’s inner side from the break-water (depth 1.5-2.4 m).
South from the port is a buoy field Masarine, closer to the passage center. The buoy field service includes food catering, store delivery, fresh-baked bread, and croissant delivery. There are a few restaurants at the harbor and in the village on top of the hill also a small Minimarket.
