Iz is a mid channel island that is between Ugljan and Dugi Otok. There are no sandy beaches on the island. The main occupations on the island are fishing and agriculture. The island has many Romanesque buildings. There are two settlements on Iz. Veli Iz and Mali Iz. The island is composed of limestone and dolomite rocks.

The first Croats came here in 1266.There are several interesting exhibits in the ethnographic Homeland museum in Veli Iz. The village called Mali Iz, which is on the northern side, has approximately 200 inhabitants. The island is well known for its specially made and decorated pottery artifacts. At one time seventy families used to make pottery here. The island has a ninth century chapel called Vs. Marja and an eleventh century pre-Romanesque church. There is an old fortified castle on the island too. There is a festival held every year on the island where the king of Iz is elected. This festival dates back to the ancient times.

There is a daily ship to the island from Zadar, which comes to the ferry port of Brsanj.
The island has Mediterranean vegetation and 70,000 olive trees. Most of the olive plantations are neglected. The island has a population of 557 inhabitants and the highest point is Korinjak, which is 168 meters high. There is a diving centre on the island.
