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.

Cruises to Vis

Things to do in Vis

  • Visit traditional Old Town of Vis

    Vis old town is a merger of two settlements: 19th-century Luka (meaning ‘port’), where the ferry docks, and medieval Kut, on the opposite curve of the horseshoe. Enjoy a stroll down the cobbled streets and enjoy stunning views of the traditional stone houses. Alternatively, dive into the rich history of this small town with the remains of a Greek cemetery, Roman baths and an English fortress.

  • Town of Komiza

    Below a 600-meter Mount Hum, lies the beautiful town of Komiza. Explore the beautiful 17th and 18th century stone streets and houses and visit the breath taking and picturesque pebble or sand beaches. Alternatively you can take a boat trip around this beautiful area and visit the unique Blue Cave, near the island Bisevo.

  • 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.
