Hidden from the mainland of Croatia by Hvar and Brac, Vis is becoming very popular because of its unspoilt bays, stone villages, gourmet restaurants and easy relaxed lifestyle.
The two settlements that make up Vis town are at either end of a beautiful horseshoe shaped bay. The ferry arrives in Luka, the business end of the bay whilst in Kut, historical stone cottages, churches and maze of steps and alleyways create a charming village. The walk between the two takes about twenty minutes.
Vis was declared a military zone from 1944 to 1989 and was closed to tourism for these years. A tour of the remains of this time..hidden tunnels, caves and airfields can be seen as one of the islands many tourist attractions.
At the other end of the island, Komiža retains it’s fishing village charm. A bus connects the villages but other than this, if you want to explore the island and its inland villages and charming unspoilt bays, it is necessary to hire a car, scooter or a boat.
