A strategic navy harbor due to its unique geographical position and as such closed to the public until recently. The island of Vis is one of the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic Sea, 45 km from the mainland making it the most remote inhabited Croatian island. It is a known nautical center on the Adriatic coast because of the open sea and numerous bays. Town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa is the first urban center in Croatia. Visit the remains of the Roman Thermal Place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the view of beautiful ”Villae Rusticae” situated along the coast! A must-see destination for those who like to rest in peace and quiet, authentic seaside atmosphere which makes a unique blend of natural, cultural and historical beauties retained almost intact to this day! Stiniva is one of the most famous bays, and certainly has the most unusual shape. It is located on the south side of the island, bordered by high cliffs, which leave only a four meters narrow entrance from the sea. After passing through the “door” you come to a beautiful rounded bay with a pebble beach. Stiniva is since 1967 protected by law as a natural monument. Stončica, another must visit bay on Vis, a beautiful bay surrounded by dense Mediterranean vegetation and the crystal-clear sea. It’s beach is different from most other beaches on the island of Vis, and on the Adriatic in that it is a sandy cove. A little relaxing resort, an irresistibly timeless and carefree relaxing summer oasis. You will find rare examples of tamarisk framing the sea coast by its high reeds. The beach has a family restaurant in the beautiful surroundings with tables in the sand offering local food and blue fish and a wide selection of soft drinks and quality wine. There is a playground for beach volleyball, which will delight all supporters of an active holiday. Vis is a gastronomic paradise, there is literally no bad restaurant there. So make sure you make your reservation in time not to miss some of their local specialties.
