This fortress is situated at the mouth of the Kanal Sv. Ante, the approach to Sibenik, on its southern side. While it is possible to reach it over land on foot most visitors arrive by water. Turning south into the bay on the landward side of the fort it is possible to anchor on its southern side in depths of 2-10 metres. From here it is either a short swim or tender-ride to the small dock by the fort’s eastern entrance.
Be aware that Bora blows strongly here and its effects are increased as it is funneled along the Kanal Sv Ante. There are other bays on the Kanal that may provide a better long term/overnight mooring. This anchorage is well worth the visit if you are interested in stopping to see the fort, or if you want somewhere convenient to stop on the way to or from Sibenik.
