Brusnik, land
The Island of Brusnik, black, hard as granite, volcanic dolerite in origin, lies 1 nm from the Island of Sv. Andrija and 8 nm from the Island of Vis. The shallows at 20 m are about 300 m south of the island and drop to 60 m to create an amazing wall. The seabed is soft, white sand, in contrast to the islands dark cliffs.

Diving tips

Anchoring is out at sea at a depth of 20 m. The dive is along the anchoring line to shallows and then an exploration of the wall. Strong currents prevail with excellent visibility.
