Compared to other Adriatic islands, Vis is rather unique. Being an important strategic military stronghold for centuries, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture and traditional architecture.

However, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the time designated for our visit. In case we can't enter Blue Cave due to such sea conditions, you will get a full ticket refund. After a swim stop and lunch we’ll continue cruising along many coves and bays, towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island.
