Day 3 (Monday): Korcula - Vis

Early in the morning we cruise towards the little island of Biševo and visit the Blue cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon.

Entrance to Blue Cave is to be paid on the spot (approx. EUR 10.- per person). We continue towards the island of Vis, which has a unique geographical position and was once a strategic harbour for the Yugoslav navy – it was closed to the public until recently. Because of this very isolation, Vis retained a special charm of ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticae situated along the waterfront. For those wandering to see more – rent a car or scooter and explore this wonderful island on your own.
