THE BEST-PRESERVED HIDING PLACE AT SEA
The preserved and untouched nature is the highest value and a rarity as well as the strongest tourist trump card of the island of Vis. This open sea island with hidden natural coves, beaches and underwater caves offers unprecedented opportunities for nautical and diving tourism. The World Organization for Environmental Protection has included the island of Vis among the ten most preserved Mediterranean islands.
There are not many places where you can enjoy, like here, the fragrances and colours of untouched nature surrounding the villages which date back to ancient times when the bays of this island were the core of the present-day towns of Vis and Komiža.
Southwest of the town of Komiža is the Blue Cave, a world famous natural phenomenon where, during the summer months, between 11 a.m. and noon, the rays of sunshine break through a submarine gap in such a way as to paint the sea with a silver glare and the cave with unusual blueness. Vis’ gastronomic offer is unique in its freshness and the quality of its seafood, crabs and fish prepared into a some of the most fantastic dishes and served with Vis white wine Vugava or the red wine Plavac mali.
