White unpopulated sandy beaches, hidden bays, a handsome coast line, fresh air and dark, mysterious caves go some way to best describe this beautiful Croatian island located off the coast of Central Dalmatia. Located in the Adriatic Sea, Vis is one of the furthest islands from mainland Croatia, and, perhaps because of its location, far from the beaten track, has earned a reputation as the independent traveller's paradise. Consisting of only a handful of villages and two large towns named Vis and Komiza, the island portrays a sense of splendid untouched beauty which has casts it roots as far back as its volcanic creation about 3000 years ago. This magical island is home to three beautiful beaches namely; Milna Bay, Stonicaca and Zaglava. In these coastal regions, you will find plenty of places of interest, including the Stonicaca light house, the Blue cave, Tito’s cave, Stiniva Cove and a fabulous museum, quite unlike any other. The museum was built during the Austrian reign over Croatia and is home to a vast archeological and ethnographic collection. Located in a historic fortress, the archeological museum is well worth a visit. Heading inland, the horizon is dominated by Vis' three mountains - Sveti Duh, Mali Hum and Hum – which, combined with the gorgeous views, make this area a hiker's paradise. As you can see: a Vis travel is rich in variety.
As well as hiking and mountain climbing, Vis offers a range of other outdoor activities guaranteed to get your heart racing. Choose from kayaking, wind surfing, night diving, panaroma cruises, caving, free climbing and abseiling to name but a few, and gain a completely new insight into life on Vis as well as memories that will last you a lifetime. If all that action has worn you out, take a break to sample the sand, sun and serenity of Vis' beaches or try your hand at a more relaxing activity, such as fishing. Seeing as Vis relies heavily on the fishing industry, who knows, you might even pick up a few tips from the locals. Of course Vis is offering a variety of comfortable Vis accommodation to relax in.
