More from Vis
It would be a pity to spend your holiday on Vis just bathing, sunbathing and trying the gastronomic delights. Because Vis offers so much more. Besides the numerous excursions (Blue Cave, Green Cave, Queen's Cave, a visit to former military areas as well as a visit to the remote open-sea islands such as Svetac, Palagruža, Brusnik), Vis' varied offer also includes the so called active holiday. You can walk around the entire island along the well marked paths; one of the more famous forms of active holiday is the exploration of Vis landscapes by bike; diving is also very attractive as well as exploring and encountering the island in a kayak.
Vis has several runways for paragliding and for those in search of something completely different cricket can even be played here. There are tennis and basketball courts here as well (the Issa Sport and Recreation Centre is close to the pier itself) and at the beginning of August every year you can take part in the famous swimming marathon from the islet of Host to the Vis waterfront.
