Sea is turquoise and crystal clear, you have many shade in hot summer days because there are a lot of pine trees. Also you have many bars, restaurants and other places you can enjoy so much activities.
In many ways, Vis is the most fascinating of all the Croatian islands. This is mainly due to the fact that the island was entirely closed to foreigners in the days of Yugoslavia (as it was used as a naval base), only being opened to visitors in 1989.
You will be astonished by the look of this island, also the people and food.
The most beautiful locations you can visit on Vis are;
Blue Cave – It is actually located on a mini island called Biševo, right across the island of Vis. The magnificent work of Mother Nature, this cerulean oasis is so unique because it is formed due to seawater eroding limestone, a rock Biševo island is wholly composed of. Thanks to the sunlight’s reflection off of the white seabed, which creeps through the opening of a vault at the top of the cave, a mesmerizing blue hue fills its capacity.
Green Cave – another natural phenomenon in Croatia, a less famous than the Blue Cave, but definitely worth visiting. You can swim and snorkel inside of cave (in Blue Cave you can’t).
Stiniva – this beach is one of the biggest attractions in Croatia because of the impressive shape mostly due to sea erosion.
Budikovac – people say that this is the place where the sea touches the sky !
Komiža – a Mediterranean fishing village. Wherever you decide to take a picture, you won’t go wrong because the whole village is breathtaking.
