When approaching the harbor the chimney of the
cement factory located south of the town serves as a good landmark. The entrance into the
ACI marina Umag lies half a mile north. Special attention should be paid to Paklena Shoal,
half a mile on the northeastern side of the entrance to the harbor. Paklena Shoal is
marked by a light (Fl (2) WR 8s 10m 8/6 M). Paklena Shoal (N 45°26,3' E 13°30,3') can be
used as a way point.
The harbor is open to the northwest and one
must enter it between a red lighted (Fl R 3s 2M) and green unlighted buoy. To the north,
next to the red buoy there is a black and yellow mark on a rock, which must be rounded
from south. When approaching, it is recommended to keep to a course of 60°. The light
positioned on the breakwater (Fl (3) R 3s 4m 8M) is visible after passing the described
buoys. The sea depth in the marked channel is 4 m.
