Island Zut

Žut (pronounced [ʒûːt]; Croatian “the yellow one”) is an uninhabited island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea, in central Dalmatia. With an area of 14.83 km²[1] it is the 28th largest island in Croatia and the second largest island in the Kornati islands archipelago, after Kornat. Although most of the archipelago, composed of 89 islands, islets and rocks, is included in the Kornati National Park, the island of Žut is not.Žut is located between the islands of Pašman and Kornat and its coastline is unusually long at 44.06 km, thanks to the large number of coves and bays. The island’s highest point is the Gubavac peak at 155 m above sea level. Most of the island is covered in maquis shrubland. Although uninhabited, there is a marina on the island, operated by ACI Club and open from March to October.According to measurements done in the early 2000s, Žut is also the largest uninhabited island in Croatia, being almost 2 km2 larger than Prvić near Krk, which had previously been thought to hold this distinction.Source: Wikipedia
