    Rota Palagruzona

    The historical regatta on the route Komiža-Palagruža in historical fishing boats was re-established on the 4 th of September 2009. For centuries, the fishermen sailed to Palagruža, which is 42 nm away from Komiža, to fish sardines which were then salted in barrels on the beach over there and brought in gaettas Falkuša to the barracks in Komiža by the end of the fishing dark. As a rowing regatta, "Rota Palagruzona" was the longest marathon in the world, a unique venture which required limits of human physical capabilities to be exceeded.

  • The perfect destination

    Komiža has long fishing tradition which is reflected in the appearance of this small town and in the warmth of the local people. It is situated at the foot of the hill Hum (587 m) and oriented in West-Southwest direction. It is, therefore, protected from all the northerly winds and is subsequently the warmest place in Croatia in winter.

    The archipelago of Komiža encompasses even the farthest Adriatic islands, rich with fish – Biševo, Palagruža, St. Andrija as well as Jabuka and Brusnik – islands of volcanic origin.
