Out of function due to the reconstruction till the season 2018
It is simply impossible to be in Rovinj and not feel good. This idyllic town is a brilliant Istrian gem that will captivate you with its charm, its colours, its pitoresqueness, its medieval architecture of narrow stone streets, and its culinary delights. Saint Euphemia watches over the town, once a small fishing village and now a leading light of Croatian tourism. ACI Marina Rovinj will, like the goldfish of legend, make the wishes of every boater and friend of the sea come true.
That is why the complete reconstruction of the sea and land part of the whole marina has just started. The new ACI marina in Rovinj will be a modern marina of superior design with the latest technological solutions and with all the services of the highest standards in the world’s nautical tourism, as well as the first ACI marina with the highest categorization – of five anchors.
The new marina will have a total of 192 moorings or berths for boats of average length of 18 meters. It will bring together all the technical and support services and it will be the most modern nautical one stop shop destination. The reconstruction of the marina will last until the beginning of season 2018.
Did you know…?
…that there are as many as 22 islets in the Rovinj archipelago, of which St. Andrew (Sv. Andrija) and St. Catherine (Sv. Katarina) are the largest and the most beautiful. The list of protected natural monuments and special reserves in the Rovinj area includes the islands and the coastal area from the islet of St. John (Sv. Ivan) to Two Sisters Islet (Dvije sestrice), the sea and the undersea world of the Lim Channel and part of Lim Bay, the park-forest Punta Corrente forest park, the Palud marshes, Romuald’s Cave, and the Cave di Monfiorenzo quarry.
…that every summer since 1967 Rovinj has been the venue of a unique open-air art exhibition and the town’s most iconic cultural event – the Grisia. Named after the street that, like a backbone, connects the main town square and the Church of St. Euphemia, Grisia is an open-air artists’ studio and what makes it truly unique is the fact that works of amateurs, including children, are exhibited side by side with works of formally trained artists.
From the sea one can recognize Rovinj by the bell tower of the church of St. Euphemia standing on the hill in the middle of the peninsula, as well as the St. Katarina Island beneath the very town. Cape St. Euphemia is a marked by a lighthouse (Fl 4s 19m 7M) which can be used as a way point (45°05,0’ N 13°38,0’E). ACI marina Rovinj can be approached between St. Katarina Island and the town harbor breakwater. At the head of the breakwater is a lighthouse (Fl R 3s 7m 3M). Between the lighthouse and St. Katarina Island there is a shoal marked by a yellow-black conical buoy that has to be rounded from north. If we approach the marina from the south, we should hold to the marina breakwater which on its end is marked by a green lighthouse (Fl G 5s 7m 5M).
