Excursion to Vis and the Blue Cave


Immerse yourself in the blue of the Blue Cave

The Blue Cave is situated on the eastern side of the island of Biševo, in the Balun cove, and is a world-famous phenomenon due to its characteristic blue color. It consists of two halls, with a total length of 36 m. It was made by long-term crashing of waves on the steep coast. It is partially under the sea. Through a nature made opening below sea level, around noon, sunlight penetrates to the white rocks at the sea floor, from where it reflects and illuminates the cave in blue, and the objects in the sea in silver. It was popularized by the Austrian diplomat and naturalist Eugen Ransonnet-Villez, who in 1884 opened a second entrance (about 2 m wide), through which a boat with no oars can pass. It has been protected as a geomorphological natural monument since 1951.

A small fishing town with a rich tradition

Komiža, a town and port on the western side of the island of Vis, has, for centuries, been a place of fishermen and winegrowers. The small town was formed around the Komiža bay. Nearby, there is ‘Komuna’, a Venetian fortress from the 16th century that nowadays hosts the Fisherman’s Museum. ‘Falkuša’, traditional wooden fishing boat ‘gajeta’ from Komiža can be found along the coast. In the center of the old city, most of the houses are from the 17th and 18th century, and the Zanchi Palace is located on the small square. On the western side of Komiža on a pebble beach there is St. Mary’s church, known as ‘Gusarica’, and on the vineyard hill above the town rises ‘Muster’ – a church and monastery dedicated to St. Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors, seaman and fishermen.

Have a swim on the natural beach

Ravnik islet is situated along the southeast coast of Vis near the village Rukavac. The Green Cave is located on the islet of Ravnik, protected as a geomorphological monument of nature since 1967 . It got its name from the greenish reflection of the sea, made by sunrays seeping through the opening in the vault of the cave. The Green Cave, in which you can take a swim, has two larger entrances so it can be entered by a motorless boat.
