Vis travel packages
The island less traveled. Once off-limits to civilians, but tiny island of Vis is an enchanting place that will have you eager to return.

Getting to Vis used to require being born there or drafted by Yugoslavia's military. Now all you need to do is take a ferry to the furthest populated island off the Adriatic coast. Due to its strategic position, Vis has always been coveted by Europe's naval powers. Under Tito, it became a military stronghold. Remnants from this period are a major attraction. With its rugged Adriatic coastline and nearby small islands, there's plenty of natural beauty to explore. The sights include the famous Blue Cave on Bisevo island and the neighboring Green Cave. Plus there are some stunning beaches and hidden coves. The accommodations on Vis are nice too, from apartments with all the amenities, to villas and beach hotels.

Vineyards, olive groves, and green vegetation cover the sparsely populated interior of Vis. The locals are friendly and the scenery is beautiful. Wine lovers praise Vis for the wine made from its native Vugava white grapes. Unlike most other parts of Croatia, Vis had a late start in tourism and this has turned out to be quite a blessing. It is not the easiest island to access. But the laid-back atmosphere, excellent seafood and local cuisine, quaint port towns, and beautiful natural surroundings exemplify Croatia's slogan of being "the Mediterranean as it once was." A visit to Vis will be a highlight of your vacation in Croatia. It's like heaven on the Dalmatian coast. This is the perfect place to stop and relax, before or after visiting cities like Hvar, Split, or Zadar. Vis was the filming location for Mamma Mia 2, standing in for a Greek island, and the movie's fans do visit, but the island's strict building laws ensure that a tourism explosion is not a threat.

What we love about Vis

Charlie

Marketing Director

I've been to a lot of Croatia's islands but Vis is easily tops for me. Being further out than the others, combined with its history as a military island, has kept it untouched by mass tourism. There are hardly any hotels and the pace of life is as slow as you could want. The locally grown food and wine is fantastic and the people very friendly and laid back. Oh and our guide on Vis, Medo, is so much fun.

I find Vis to be the most peaceful island in Croatia. It is definitely untouched and very peaceful, which distinguishes it from some of its neighbors. Time seems to pass very very slowly, when it doesn't stop altogether. The island's past as a military island forbidden to visitors just makes it more interesting. What impressed me the most is the laid back atmosphere and numerous, stunning hidden bays. You can often find beaches that you can enjoy by yourself! You really feel like all the stress of a daily life is taken away while there. Once you visit, it's hard not to return!

In my eyes, Vis makes for a perfect summer destination. Laid-back, it represents just the right balance of history, nature, beaches, number of visitors, together with its gastronomy and enology offer. With its Blue and Green Caves, many secluded beaches, Vis town, Komiža (an old fishing village), and many kilometers of hidden tunnels, some now used by top-notch wineries, this island will leave you speechless many times over.

Where to stay in Vis

There are two towns on Vis island. The town of Vis is the larger of the two and is where the ferries dock. The other town, the fishing village of Komiza, is on the far side of the island. The accommodation options are better in the town of Vis, so we have focused on this location. Komiza is easily reached by car, scooter, or a bus service that is timed to coincide with the ferries. Most accommodation on Vis is in private rooms and villas. The island's late start in tourism means that there are not many hotels to be found, and only one that meets our exacting standards. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary, we will present our recommended options for you to select from.
Modern Apartments in Family Villa
Nicely, newly refurnished apartments, you won't find a better value view in town. A shared terrace is the perfect place to relax in the evenings.
