Welcome to Vis Island


As has happened with impoverished islands across the Mediterranean, Vis’ lack of development has become its drawcard as a tourist destination. International and local travellers alike now flock to Vis, seeking authenticity, nature, gourmet delights and peace and quiet. That's only set to increase following the 2018 release of the movie Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, filmed on the island.

Vis has its own distinct grape, vugava, a white varietal that's been cultivated here since ancient times.

There are some days during the year (very rare) with strong southwest wind, so it would be not possible to reach island of Bisevo and Vis. Under these sea/weather conditions the Blue Cave and Monk Seal Cave are closed as the entrance of the caves are small. In these situations we change the tour to a another route. Depending on the wind direction it can be the Pakleni islands, Hvar and Brac, lunch at blue lagoon Marinkovac and wine tasting included. Another option is Drvenik island, Vela Rina sandy beach and Krknjasi blue lagoon, lunch on island Solta at a unique location (restaurant Sampjer), wrecksnorkeling in Nejucam and of course wine tasting on island Brac.
