Drvenik Mali (Italian: Zirona Piccola) is an island in Croatian part of Adriatic Sea. It is situated in middle-Dalmatian archipelago, west of Drvenik Veliki, 8 nautical miles (15 km) from Trogir. Its area is 3.3 square kilometres (1.3 sq mi).[1][2] The only settlement on the island is the eponymous village with a population of 87 (as of 2011).[3] The coast is well indented and sea around the island is shallow, thus convenient for fishing.[2] The highest peak is 79 metres high.[2] Main industries are agriculture (mostly olives), fishing and tourism.[2]
