Island of Vis - what to see
  • Modra Špilja (Blue Cave) - discover the island of Vis

    attractions on the island of Vis

    The Cave has been described by Ransonet and is located in Balun Bay
    on the eastern part of the island of Biševo. It has been open to the public since 1884 when the external entrance was cut into the cave and through which the cave can be reached by means of a small rowing boat. When the sea is calm and the day is sunny, reflected sun rays pass through the undersea entrance to the cave and create a fascinating blueness, whilst an immersed object on the sea's surface adopts silverfish sheen.

  • King George III Fortress - discover the island of Vis

    In April 1812, the English commander of Vis, George Duncan Robertson,
    began building a short and oblong fortress with sloping walls over the entrance to the port of Vis which was surrounded by a moat. It was named after the English king, George III, and as it was higher than other buildings nearby, the local people of Vis called it, and continue to call it "Fortica".

  • Stiniva Bay - discover the island of Vis

    attractions on the island of Vis

    Looking from the sea side, Stiniva is enclosed by two high rocky cliffs
    which, in their closest point, are just four metres from each other. Between them is a pebble beach but only after sailing through the 'gateway' does it open like a Roman amphitheatre auditorium paved with stones.

  • Zaglav Beach - discover the island of Vis

    attractions on the island of Vis

    This is surely one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic.
    With extremely light and glistening sand which, under the strong sun, tends to overheat and with its always pleasantly rippled, western current of cool sea, Zaglav is that part of the island that regularly appears in your dreams.

A guide to the Island of Vis

As in the Vis hymn: "In the middle of the open Adriatic Sea", the Croatian island of Vis is right there and on it in St. George's Bay, is the Croatian town of Vis. The town of Vis has experienced a turbulent history. It has gone from prosperity to decay. The consequences can be seen in the following: it has remained unchanged with regard to its urban characteristics, it is architecturally authentic and ecologically pure. Proof of this can also be found in the fact that it was selected amongst ten such destinations from around the whole world. Visit us and be converted!
