A part of Croatia's Adriatic island, called Love Island by tourists, is being put up for sale.

The island is one of Croatia's most recognizable islets. A part of the island will be offered to buyers.

"Over a million photos per year are made on and around the islet and I think its popularity is really high," said Silvestro Kardum, a representative for the owner of the lot of land offered for sale.

There are no hotels, villas or restaurants on the island, but many celebrities and their yachts come to the island every summer.

"Beyonce had her 39th birthday party on the islet and she's there several days or even weeks every year, Michael Jordan was there last year, Jeff Bezos as well, there's no lack of celebrities in that area," Kardum said.

Proceeds from the sale would be invested elsewhere in the local community, he said. "The island has an area of 142,000 square meters and slightly over 40,000 square meters is up for sale for the price of 13 million euros," adding that potential buyers are calling every day.

In 2019, scientists from the Department of Archaeology of Croatia's University of Zadar discovered traces of human habitation dating back 7,000 years ago.
