Incredible history dating from Roman times which can be found all around the island and untouched nature with lots of pebble beaches especially on the south of the island, where the open sea waves sculptured some of the most eye catching coves and beaches make this place worth visiting.

A must see during your stay on the island is Stiniva Bay, a beautiful beach almost enclosed by cliffs, and the Blue Cave on the nearby island of Biševo, one of Croatia’s most famous natural wonders.

BLUE CAVE – ISLAND OF BIŠEVO

The Blue Cave is one of the most extraordinary places on the Croatian coast due to its natural phenomenon that occurs every day. It’s located in a small bay on the eastern side of Biševo island and it can be reached only by small boats.

As if by special effects from a movie set, the entire cave is bathed in a radiant turqouise glow, exuding a surreal, otherwordly atmosphere ideal for scuba divers of all categories.

The cave is most dazzling on a sunny day when the sun rays penetrate the water and reflect off the limestone bottom of the cave, filling it with an incredibly beautiful blue light. It’s a truly unique experience that makes  the Blue Cave worth visiting.

 

STINIVA COVE

Behind high cliffs, almost enclosing the cove, a small pool of crystal clear sea water is hidden, lying in absolute seclusion and tranquility. With this naturally unusual appearance, Stiniva has become the natural monument, protected since 1967., preserving nowadays the same pristine beauty thanks to a difficult access.

This true wonder of nature is located on the southern side of the island of Vis and it can be reached only by small boats due to its very narrow entrance of only four meters. 

Come and see for yourself why the readers of the renowned portal European Best Destinations have declared Stiniva the most beautiful European beach of 2016.!
