When approaching from Hvar, through the Peljeski Channel the red lighthouse at 42°57,8’ N / 17°08,4' E can be used as a way point. The marina comes in sight after rounding that lighthouse and the whole peninsula, which can be identified by the prominent town walls and the cathedral bell tower. The entrance to the marina is marked by a green lighthouse on the southern side of the breakwater.
