The island of Brusnik

Brusnik is a small volcanic island located 13 km from Komiža.

Volcanic islands in Dalmatia are a rarity as the entire shore and islands are exclusively made of limestone.

There is a beautiful beach on the island with dark pebbles.

In the past, Brusnik played an important role in the life of Komiža's fishermen who sailed around the island and found shelter there.

From those times the remains of small pools still exist there in which captured lobsters were kept.

Brusnik today is a habitat for seabirds, rabbits, and a particular endemic lizard subspecies that only exists on this island.
