This unusual islet is actually a small stone plate with a diameter of about 60 m, and a height of only 3 m. It is made of horizontally stratified limestone whose upper layers were shattered by waves. From distance it looks like a flat surface, only 3high, and it resembles circular, flat board used in the kitchen and on boats. The sailors named it “tagliero” in a Venetian dialect, from which the diminutive “taljurić” was derived. During bad weather the entire rock is covered in sea foam, which is the reason for the lack of vegetation. A geological peculiarity of the island is a cave without a vault created by the melting or collapsing of the vault in the past. The sea around Taljurić is very rich in a variety of fish, especially deep-sea fish.
