The Monk Seal Cave

The Monk Seal Cave is located on the island of Biševo and has special geomorphologic characteristics.

Its aperture onto the sea's surface is relatively large, but it gets steadily smaller towards the interior.

The cave is 160 meters long and the end is incredibly narrow and low terminating on a small beach.

This cave was the habitat of one of the most endangered mammals in the world - the Mediterranean monk seal, an extremely rare type of seal.

After a long period of the almost complete absence of this extremely beautiful animal from our part of Adriatic, in the last years, we have had the rare chance to meet it again.

For this reason, it is not so surprising that we look forward ward to the return of these former inhabitants to the Cave.
