Nerežišća is a village on the island Brač in Croatia. It has a population of 868 (2001 census), 98% which are Croats.

In the past, Nerežišća was the capital of the island. It was founded in the middle of the island because of fear of pirates marauding the Adriatic sea. Once these pirates were eradicated by the Venetians, the locals started populating the settlements by the sea, especially Supetar and Sutivan, across the Brac Straits facing Split.
