Of all the Croatian islands, it seems to tourists and locals alike, the most mysterious of them is the island of Vis. It is the most distant among the islands of Central Dalmatia, and for much of its recent history, up to 1989, Vis served as a military base for the Yugoslavian Army. Many local residents had to vacate the island.
Consequently, it was problematic to develop tourist infrastructure for Vis after it was opened for the general public. However, this is exactly what attracts visitors here. Peacefulness, quiet, and serenity have become this virgin region’s trademarks. Guests are also drawn to the naturally lit grotto, Blue Cave, located on the island of Biševo just five kilometers southwest.
