ACI marina Cres along with nine other ACI marinas has been awarded the “European Blue Flag”, an environmental award given to communities that make a special effort to keep their beaches and marinas clean and manage them with consideration for the local environment.


The train and bus station as well as the port are only 1 km from the marina. There are regular ferry lines to Rijeka and Dubrovnik, as well as Ancona, Pescara and Bari in Italy. Regular ferry lines connect Split with islands. The airport, 20 km from the city, connects the entire region with Europe and the rest of the world.


Approach to Cres harbor is possible through a channel 400 m wide. Landmarks when approaching Cres harbor are the lighthouses on Cape Kovačine (Fl (2) 6s 9m 8M) and on Cape Križice (Fl G 3s 9m 4M). The lighthouse on Cape Kovačine can be used as a way point (44°57,6’ N 14°23,7’ E). After approaching the channel between those two lighthouses, the lighthouse on Cape Melin (Fl R 3s 6m 3M) comes in sight. There is an underwater reef in front of Cape Melin, so a distance of at least 50 m should be kept. The entrance into ACI marina Cres is marked by harbor lights. On the breakwater head there is a red lighthouse (Fl (2) R 5s 7m 3M) and on Martinski Islet a green lighthouse (Fl (2) G 5s 7m 3M). Maximum speed from Cape Kovačine to the marina and 5 knots and within the marina 2 knots. Note: Official navigational charts recommended (Official Navigational Charts – publisher HHI Split): 100-16, 100-18, 50-3, MK-6 and Plan 20.
