This was my first trip to the Island Vis in Adriatic Sea, Croatia and I spent a pleasant vacation with my family. It is one the farthest Island off the Croatian Coast (Palagruža is the farthest but you can not come there with a Ferry) and it has area about 90 square kilometres and about 3,500 inhabitants (off-season).
How do you come here? You take A1 highway from Zagreb to Split and there you take the Ferry (here is the time table) and travel by boat for about 2.5 hours. Road infrastructure is good (the whole island was former big naval military base of ex-Yugoslavian army and it was closed for public visits until 1995).
Here is the map of the island Vis with all important beaches and all other important sightseeing objects.
What you shouldn’t miss on your trip:
- Walking through Komiža (we recommend accommodation here)
- Eating and enjoying in Pojoda restaurant at town Vis
- Swimming at Srebrna beach
- Swimming at Stiniva beach
- Visiting the Blue Cave at island Biševo
- Visiting Tito’s Cave
- Swimming at Porat beach at island Biševo
- Enjoying at lounge bar at the top of King’s George Fortress near town Vis (beautiful view)
- Patisserie “Cuker” at Komiža, near post office
- Tasting the fresh domestic lemons, white vine “Vugava” and red vine “Plavac”
I was getting up early, while my family was sleeping, to take some nice photos with my DSLR Nikon camera (because the Sun was low and rising). I managed also to learn some new interesting stuff (under the shadow of pine trees at Srebrna beach) from various online academy courses at Udemy. I had a really good compatriot – Acer Iconia tablet with i5 IvyBridge CPU with 256GB SSD which gave me 5-hours autonomy of working unplugged.
Here are some photos I choose to show you from this wonderful vacation. Enjoy and if you like, please feel free to comment or share.
