Fishing on Žirje Total score -
If you like fishing, picturesque Žirje is a great place to enjoy fishing and the beauty of the Mediterranean.
WHERE TO FISH
There are 29 bays around Žirje, with the largest and most populated being: Muna, Koromašna, Mikavica, Tratinska and Pečenja. Stupica (Pit) Bay, as the name itself indicates, is dangerous for anchorage in a south wind, so you should leave the bay at the first signs of a south wind rising up. The beauty of the indented coastline is further enhanced by 17 surrounding islets, reefs and rocks. There are also 2 isthmuses (“tombolo”) on the island: Kabal and Škrovadica. (Source: Wikipedia)
