Vrboska (Hvar), Croatia

Depart early from Šešula for an exciting spot of blue water sailing as you strike out for distant Vis. Vis is the most Westerly of the Dalmatian Islands, so hope for a strong wind as you point your bow towards this Adriatic gem. Head for Vis’ western coast, where the traditional town of Komiža waits in a broad and sheltered bay. This beautiful, hill-fringed town is home to a unique waterside castle, and is a great spot to try Vis’ famous wine and seafood or scuba diving.

Discover Vis

Explore the blue cave

Komiža town is perfect starting point to visit the Blue Cave, 6 miles away on tiny Biševo island. The cave is under protection, meaning one cannot enter it with their own dinghy, but has to be taken in for a 20-minute tour. That can either be arranged directly from Komiža with a speedboat, or after mooring in front of the cave entrance, when the tour guide picks you up on their boat. The light bends in perfect angles to make the cave illuminate blue, and is best suited for a visit when sun is at its highest point.
