Marina Nautica is located on the north-western coast of Istria (45o 19,0’ N; 13o 34,0’E), in a naturally deep and sheltered cove of the Novigrad bay. The Novigrad Marina in the city harbour is the safe shelter from all the winds and rough sea, situated in one of the best protected bays in the Adriatic coast. The harbour is protected from all winds except W and NW which cause a surge in the harbour. As soon the first signs of N and NW winds are noticed yachts should transfer to Novigrad marina. Yachts drawing up to 3.5m may moor along the breakwater, near the head, and on the NE side of the pier (four-point moor). The pier is also used by coastal and excursion boats, and in summer for customs. The best anchorage is about 200m NE of the pier (depth 34m ).

Novigrad can be identified by ruins of the town walls, church belfry and white, eight-sided concrete tower (sector light) at the head of the breakwater and a white tower with column and gallery (green light) on the head of the pier. Care should be taken to avoid two shoals at the harbour entrance: Val shoal (WSW of harbour) is marked by a cylindrical black buoy with red line roud the middle, topped with two black spheres; Meja shoal (at the root of the outer side of the breakwater). When approaching at night vessels should keep within the white sector of the light on the breakwater head. The Val shoal is covered by its red sector and the Meja shoal by its green sector.
