The island of Piškera is an uninhabited island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea. Its surface covers only 2.66 square kilometres, and its highest point is 127 metres above sea level. ACI’s marina is the only outpost of civilization disrupting the pristine nature of the island, surrounded by a mosaic of islands and islets, rocks and lighthouses. ACI Marina Piškera is particularly popular among boaters not only for its breathtaking environment, but also because it is at the half-way point of the route through Kornati National Park.
ACI Marina Piškera is located between the islands of Piškera and Panitula Vela, off the northern coast of Panitula Vela, where the ACI flag flies on the island’s highest prominence. The marina is well-protected from the northerly bura wind, but a little less so from the southerly winds. It is open from April 1 through October 31.
Once a year, on the last Sunday in July, the people of Sali and other nearby villages flock to this uninhabited island in their boats to attend mass at the Church of the Nativity of Mary. The “Klif” restaurant is part of the marina complex.
Did you know…?
…that George Bernard Shaw wrote: “On the last day of Creation, God desired to crown His work, and thus created the Kornati islands out of tears, stars and breath.” According to the legend Shaw referred to, the Kornati were made from a handful of white stones which God had left over after creating the world, so He scattered them around and decided that nothing more needed to be changed here.
…that it was probably on these shores that Croats, a people hailing from the interior of the Eurasian continent, learned fishing. The first written record of fishing in Croatia dates back to the end of the 10th century, when the new arrivals mixed with the population of Byzantine Dalmatia, transferred to the control of Croatian rulers.
