The island of Vis – the most remote of all Croatian islands, covering an area of 90.3 km2, is 45 miles away from the Croatian coast (from the city of Split), and some 60 miles away from the Italian coast.
Around the island of Vis there are numerous smaller islands and islets (Biševo, Budikovac, Brusnik, Jabuka, Ravnik, Svetac, and others).
Premium wines, beautiful vineyards, historic sites, numerous caves (Queen’s Cave on the north side of the island ,Green Cave on the island of Ravnik, and the famous Blue Cave on the island of Biševo) and marvelous bays are part of the richness of this offshore island.
The island of Vis was closed off to visitors for many years, and therefore is ecologically intact with untouched nature, clean sea and beautiful beaches.
Because of all this, you and your family can enjoy memorable holiday moments.
The island of Vis is rich in history, and thanks to its past the island possesses the myriad of monuments, from ancient to modern times.
The remains of the ancient city, Roman baths, old Issean necropolis, many Renaissance villas and churches, and from recent times Tito’s Cave – all bear witness to the turbulent history of the island and offer you the opportunity for a number of tours and excursions.
