ACI MARINA CRES
The Cres beauty with a five-anchor rating – Nautical excellence on the island of Cres
The construction of an outdoor swimming pool with a water area of 220 m2, including a cocktail bar and sun loungers, will improve the services that the marina offers; it also means that ACI Cres will make an even bigger move towards luxury and lifestyle tourism
Soon after ACI Marina Rovinj had received the prestigious five-anchor rating, ACI Marina Cres followed suit, becoming the second marina in the ACI system with the highest rating. The extensive marina can also accommodate very large yachts, making Cres extremely attractive to global jet setters and successful businesspeople. A capacity of 510 berths, consisting of 440 wet and 70 dry ones, and many amenities make ACI Cres a stop that boaters simply must make when sailing in the Northern Adriatic. The biggest investment is the construction of an outdoor swimming pool with a water area of 220 m2, including a cocktail bar and sun loungers, which will improve the services that the marina offers; it also means that ACI Cres will make an even bigger move towards luxury and lifestyle tourism.
Meanwhile, the nautical dream oasis on Cres has received many prizes, such as second prize in the section of the best marinas in the Adriatic within the Tourist Flower – Quality for Croatia competition, which ACI Marina Cres won in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, it was selected as the best marina in the category of marinas with more than 450 berths, while in 2013, it received third prize in the category of Best Large Marinas in the Adriatic. In 2017, ACI Marina Cres was awarded the prestigious My Favourite Marina recognition award; in 2018, it received a recognition award for outstanding contribution to the organisation and the overall success of the Nautical Patrol of the Jutarnji list newspaper; and in 2019, boaters voted it as their second favourite Croatian marina.
