Piškera is the oldest seasonal fishing settlement in Croatia, meaning it has been inhabited (mostly by fishermen) only during main fishing seasons. It blossomed in the 16 th century, due in part to the fresh water sources on the island itself and its neighboring isles. Today, Piškera shares the fate of many other old fishing villages in the Adriatic; it has become a tourist destination, closely focused on nautical tourism. Adjacent to Piškera, on the north coast of the isle of Panitula Vela, the ACI Marina Piškera is located, housing 150 berths together with all the accompanying content. Together with the similar marina on Žut, Piškera is the center of the Middle Adriatic nautical tourism.
