At first sight Komiža reminds us of a small pirate place congested along the coast line and backed by hills. It is known for fishermen, sardines, and Cicibela, the last half decked one-masted fishing boat falkuša, broken in 1986.But the fame of Komiza was worldwide spread by falkuša named Comeza-Lisboa, which represented our country at the world exhibition in Portugal. Komiza is also known for the custom according to which old boats are put to torch on St. Nicolas day on the plateau Muster. There is also hib, traditional fig bread with spices. Fishermen used to take it along, when they went fishing. You can jump in vis-a-vis the breakwater, at the foot of the rock of the Komiža bay. The steep cliffs, more than 200 meters high, are dropping vertically into the sea to about 20 meters of depth. From the ground continue fall gently to greater depths. The sandy bottom is covered with sea grass (sea flowering plant Posidonia oceanica), while among numerous rocks there are many schools of fish such as: common two banded sea bream, sharpsnout sea bream, red mullet, samselfish, and salema. The other sea organisms are also found in abundance. Therefore you can see many fish traps set and fishing nets cast so you should be careful not to snag on them.
