Vis (Greek Issa) is an island in the central Dalmatia, the furthest inhabited island with about 5.000 inhabitants and the area of about 90 km2. The main settlements on the island are Vis and Komiza, both located on the sea coast and the highest peak is Hum with 587 m. As an army base in former Yugoslavia, island Vis was closed to tourism. When it finally opened in 1989, visitors were pleased to discover that its natural beauty remained intact.
The natural vegetation of the island is lush. Expect citrus orchards, pine and carob trees, rosemary, lavender, as well as exotic species such as palm trees and cacti. Vis produces some of the best olives, figs, almonds, lemons in Croatia. There are also many vineyards (some of which were first planted by the Greeks as early as the 4th century), which produce some popular Croatian wine; Plavac is a strong heavy red and Vugava a rather rich white wine.
Good quality accommodation in hotels or private apartments, unpolluted environment with the crystal clear sea and marine scenery as well as the local specialities - seafood from the cleanest part of the Adriatic, they all contribute to the most pleasant holidays one could imagine.
Because of its distance from the mainland, the waters surrounding Vis island are rich in fish, especially blue fish... more travel advice
