Island of Vis

Being the island furthest away from the coast, coupled with military-imposed isolation during World War II, when the island was used as a military base, Vis is largely undiscovered and the most traditional island. It has recently started to emerge as one of the more popular destinations due to its unspoiled nature and the ‘old Mediterranean’ charm. With its beautiful beaches and coves, charming fishing town of Komiža and the neighbouring island of Biševo being home to the Blue Cave, a stunning natural phenomenon, it’s a perfect place for nature and peace lovers.

Things to do in Vis - Stiniva Cove

Stiniva Cove

Once touted the ‘Best Beach in Europe’ by a 10,000-strong poll, Stiniva Cove can only be reached either by a challenging, downward hike or by boat. The beach itself is pebbly and very sheltered thanks to tall rocky headlands that are just 4 metres apart, creating the entrance to the cove. There is a small cafe for a refreshing drink.
