The word goes around about one of the most known Adriatic nautical destination. A little lagoon on a south eastern coast of island Drvenik, which is protected by two little islands, Krknjaš Veli and Mali is a beautiful and photogenic city. I had a chance being here in early summer and late autumn and in the heart of the nautical season and always has this anchorage had a special charm. I've seen it also from the air. Only then are seen its blue colors and all the beauty of this shallow lagoon like meant for swimming and scuba diving. That's why it is crowded during the day by swimmers, mostly from Trogir.

There is also an excellent restaurant Krknjaši owned by known fisherman Ivica Špika Komunist and his wife Dragica and in which you can eat well or just drink something. In the evening the cove gets quiet. Most of the boats sail into their marinas only some of them remain on anchor. The passage between Drvenik and Mali Krknjaš is really shallow and between Veliki and Mali Krknjaš is 2 to 2.5 meters in depth and you have to sail in from the southern part.

The bottom in the shallow part is made of sand, the depth is from 6 to 7 meters, the anchor holds well and the cove is most protected from western winds and bura, especially if you anchored in its north western part. It's not suitable to stay on anchor when the south western wind is blowing.
