Welcome to Komiža


A friendly rivalry exists between Komiža and Vis Town. The latter was historically associated with the nobility, while Komiža is proud of its working-class fishing heritage and pirate tales.

Komiža has its own little sand-and-pebble beaches, but most visitors head here to catch a boat to the Blue Cave on the nearby island of Biševo. Boat trips can be arranged through any of the local travel agencies, or simply by walking along the harbour.

Enjoy the sun and views as your boat heads out over the Adriatic Sea to the spectacular Blue Cave on Biševo island.

Though at first the bay seems small, it opens out into a stunning paradise. The next stop is the famous Green Cave on Ravnik island. Here you can cool off with a refreshing swim in the emerald waters, or perhaps simply enjoy the view as you enjoy some complimentary snacks onboard.  Continuing onwards, sail to Budikovac – a tiny islet known for its unspoilt beauty and sheltered lagoon.
