10:00 AM (Check in is 15 minutes before departure time)
Just off the shore of island Vis, very close to island Ravnik where we visited Green Cave, a small island called Budikovac is located. The central beach of Budikovac island is well protected by two small islands called “Sanak” and “Small Budikovac”. The beach and the islands together form a beautiful natural turquoise lagoon, a perfect place to swim, snorkel and enjoy in the summer activities.
The Green cave (Croatian: Zelena Špilja) is located on a smaller island of Ravnik near Vis, a part of Vis archipelago. It is bigger than the Blue cave Biševo, and the entrance is at the south-west of Ravnik. Sunlight penetrates through the smallish hole on the ceiling of the cave itself, creating the fascinating green color reflecting from the sea and cave walls. That’s actually where the name came from. Entrance is big enough for the boats to go inside, and swimming is allowed.
Stiniva beach is located on the island of Vis in southern Croatia. It is a beautiful hidden beach on the southern part of the island. Surrounded by high cliffs, one part of this fantastic pebble beach is always in the shade, so you can also hide from the hot midday sun
Blue cave – it’s a natural phenomenon, one of the most beautiful gifts from Mother Nature, one of only a few in the world. Although small, it is truly gorgeous, dazzling and breathtaking, a sight to be seen, no doubt about it!
The Medvidina Cave, along with Berulia beach was once the habitat of the Mediterranean Monk Seal (thus the name “Medvid” = bear in Dalmatian slang). The Mediterranean monk seal is species of seal and one of the most endangered mammals. In this region, they also go by as “Morski medvid” (sea bear) or “Morski čovik” (sea man). Fishermen disliked them as they often destroyed their nets. It disappeared from the Adriatic Coast in the 1960s, however, we have been able to see it lately, especially along the Istrian coast. The cave is located on the southern side of the Biševo island, and it has been protected since 1967.
Komiza is located in a deep bay on the western side of the island Vis below the 600 meter high mountain Hum. (1677 inhabitants according to the census from 2001). It is a typical Mediterranean village, which attracts the tourists with beautiful beaches
Today, Palmizana stands as the most popular and the largest bay within the Pakleni islands allowing you to enjoy a combination of natural, unspoilt beaches and beautifully designed restaurants and bars. These beachside hideouts let you enjoy the freshest seafood possible alongside cocktails and wines – a great pick-me-up for when you’re feeling exhausted from travelling. There are endless restaurants and even an art gallery so Palmizana is well-equipped to look after you on your trip out from the main town.
