Welcome to our www.Pisak.info site!
Small beach below St. Mark's
We created our site to help with information those who either plan to take their vacation in Pisak or would like to know more about the place. Pisak, without doubt, is one of the genuine pearls of the Croatia's Adriatic coast. Situated halfway between Omiš
Pisak's houses have been built along a serpentine road starting from the junction on the Magistrala (the main Adriatic road)
and ending right on the coast. The small historic center of Pisak, as well as its St. Mark's Church, the main beach and restaurants are all located down by the sea.
Main beach with Biokovo in the background
Pisak's most popular beach is stretched on both sides of the small harbor in Pisak Bay - the beach is like at many of Dalmatia's beaches, gravel. There are similar, yet shorter and maybe less crowded beaches on Pisak's eastern side (below the hamlet Kuzmanići) and on the western side (below the hamlet of Fistanići). Outside of these beaches the coast is rocky and mainly difficult to reach.
Accommodation in Pisak is offered at apartment buildings run by local families. Everyday shopping can be done in the grocery store (with a greengrocer booth) halfway on Pisak's main road, beachware is available in the small shop next to the harbor. Hungry and thirsty guests are served by the Leut and Porat restaurants.
Main beach at the pier
The cultural and natural sights of the area offer excellent targets for trips, excursions and hikes. The closest of such is the cove called Vrulje (Vruje, Vruja), halfway between Pisak and Brela, just below the road coming from the freeway, Šestanovac. Vrulja means underwater spring in Croatian - these freshwater streams come from the Biokovo Mountains. Excursions with ship start from nearby Mimice and go to Island Brač's Pučišća and Povlja, usually packed with a grilled fish lunch (fish picknick) - tickets for these are available in Pisak's Felix Holidays Travel Agency.
Out of Pisak's notable cultural monuments St. Mark's Church stand out. It was originally built by a Venetian merchant, a resident of Pisak in the 13th century. Most of the parts of the church in their current form are from the 16th c., however, the tower is from the beginning of the 20th. There are old Dalmatian style houses not only around the church, but also in the hamlets once inhabited by two historic families of Pisak: Fistanić family - Fistanići, Kuzmanić family - Kuzmanići.
