More about Vis
Vis was the Yugoslavia army base between 1950 and 1989 and was closed to tourists during that time. Today,it is an interesting destination because of the remnants of war. When walking to the beach you pass through abandoned factories, fortifications, cars, boats, large vats and unused engines but all of these surrounded by a blue and transparent sea. Also there is a sightseeing tour to see the warlike power of the Yugoslav navy.
Vis beaches are among the most beautiful in Croatia, with Stiniva being the most famous - a small bay of clear water, squeezed between rocks. It is worth exploring other strips of sand, such as Lucica and Srebrna.
The Island has also its own type of grape, known as “vugava” grown over two thousand years ago. You can find excellent olive oil made in Vis combined with a fresh seafood. You will enjoy a delicious cuisine in the unpretentious restaurants around the island.
