Best things to do in Vis
Located south of Hvar Island, Vis is another island that is breathtakingly beautiful. In fact, when you look out to the sparkling waters of the Adriatic Sea, and the undiscovered rocky coves and beaches, it’s sometimes easy to forget you are in Europe. Tropical scenes, warm weather and the backdrop to the musical-hit Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again all make it a very attractive island to visit during your Croatia trip.
Like much of Croatia, the island is home to a few statement architectural and geological landmarks. The island was a naval base so homes a collection of military buildings and disused bunkers. On the water’s edge, caves like Tito’s Cave, the Blue Cave and the Green Cave are worth visiting (on foot, boat or kayak) – not only for their geological shape and formation but also because, at the right time of day, the sunlight shines into the cave, the colors are simply mesmorizing.
For the foodies, Vis offers fresh fish, seafood and other delicious delicacies served in many independent and owner-run restaurants. That said, Vis is famous for a particular style of cooking, rather than an actual dish. Ispod Peke is a Croatian version of ‘slow cooking’ – find out more below.
Crystal waters, blue skies and beautiful marinas surround the island of Vis. It is truly a sailing paradise. Bays like Komiza, Stiniva and Budihovac are worth visiting by boat, offering stunning beaches and mini archipelagos respectively. From the sea, looking over to other islets and archipelagos is a sight to remember – the blue-green sparkles and you will feel freedom.
