DAY 2 SUNDAY SPLIT BEVO BLUE CAVE VIS

Morning cruise to Island Biševo with its Blue cave. The cave has its own natural entrance which is located below sea level, which required that it visitors dive deeply only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver, mystifying her visitors.

However, sometimes High Waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. If that happens, we can provide an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with

WWII RAF Airport, along with Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East

Adriatic.

On the other hand, if we succeeded to see Blue Cave we will reach island of Vis after lunch and swim stop.

Vis is a pearl among Croatian Adriatic islands, left untouched by the development of tourism for so many years – due to its strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for many years.

Beautiful beaches, and preserved nature, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture are unique

 advantages of this unique Croatian island.
