Silba Island is in the northern Dalmation archipelago and is a picturesque car and hotel free island. Covered by Mediterranean black oak and maquis, it has an area of only 15 km², and during the winter has just 250 inhabitants. However during the summer the population can rise to over 6000 inhabitants, and the island is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination. The local population has a high dependency on the marine environment and surrounding marine ecosystem, but this ecosystem is facing increasing pressure from the rising numbers of tourists. Whilst on site students stay in a house which is around 20 minutes from the dive house. They will sleep in bunk beds in dormitories across 2 floors. Rooms are shared with up to 8/10 people, and each dormitory has it's own toilet. There is a communal eating area and lecture area and a garden at the main house.
