When you feel tired of life and just want to escape from it all, Vis will embrace you like no other place on Earth. Approximately 45 kilometers away from the mainland, Vis is Croatia’s farthest inhabited island. Don’t worry, it will be worth every kilometer of the journey: the people of Vis, Višani, rightfully boast about having some of the most well preserved, untouched nature in Croatia and on the Adriatic. To rephrase Milton, it’s paradise found. There is no way our words or even photos could do it justice, so you’ll just have to come and see it for yourself. Tough luck, right?


This island, a former military base for more than 50 years, remained inaccessible to tourists until 1989; this historical fact accounts for Vis’ unique, old-fashioned charm palpable to everyone who visits it. Once you’ve discovered the unspoiled beaches and filled your lungs with the crisp Mediterranean air, check out Vis’ towns of Komiža and Grad Vis. Hang out with the friendly locals, enjoy the rich culture and history on every corner and indulge in some mouthwatering seafood dishes (viška pogača is a must!), along with great red wines. When wilderness calls, embark on one of our adventure tours: both cycling and hiking are amazing ways to explore the island’s vast biodiversity, praised even by the WWF. The azure waters will urge you to discover its lush underwater life, so missing out on snorkling or diving here would be downright sin.


You can come to Vis from Split or, if island hopping is more your cup of tea, cruise your way from Brač, Hvar, Korčula…

To sum it up, if you want to «discover Mediterranean as it once was», you know where to ask Almissa to take you. Have you started packing yet?
