Vis island – its bays, sea, beaches, sky, rocks…

 

If I were asked to describe Vis island in one word only, what word would it be?

Beautiful…stunning…wild…magical…mysterious…picturesque…forgotten…unspoilt…

pure…relaxing…? Undoubtedly Vis is all that and much much more, but one has to go

to the island and witness its seductive charm, its wealth and beauties and experience

the mediterranean as it used to be to know exactly what I’m talking about.

I fell in love with Vis.

 

I haven’t visited all of the Croatian islands (there’s quite a lot!) but from what I’ve seen

so far I can tell you Vis is beyond the shadow of a doubt one of the most beautiful and

unique islands. What I liked and appreciated the most about Vis is its nature, lush

green hills and crystal clear sea water, beautiful pine trees and their scents, never-ending

cricket sounds and colorful butterflies, fields of olive trees and vineyards, stunning views

of deep blue Adriatic sea and pastel hues at sunset. Fairly speaking Vis island has it all.

 

My favorite part of the island was its south coast with beautiful bays and secluded beaches,

few hidden gems revealed by our friends (like Mala Travna and Senko Karuza’s restaurant)

and the town of Komiza where we stayed for the whole week at Villa Nonna.

I also enjoyed reading my book under a pine tree and watching the boys snorkelling at

Srebrna (silver) beach, the most stunning place on the island.

 

For all of you who have never traveled to Vis island…and for the rest of you who’s been

there once….or many times before…let me share with you this piece of paradise.
