About Island Vis
As one of the most notable destinations on the Adriatic Coast, Vis is located almost fifty kilometers away from Croatian shores. As such, it is surrounded with crystal clear seas, which provide numerous opportunities for high-quality scuba dives. But even without its magnificent underwater realms, Vis resembles an enchanted island from fairy tales.
The landscape of Vis features numerous vineyards and pristine natural sights. It has numerous romantic settlements, including the hugely acclaimed Komiza, located beneath the small mountain of Hum. The neighboring inlet of Bisevo serves as a home to gorgeous naval grotto called Modra Spilja.
Vis recieved international fame thanks to renowned Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, who was so inspired by the beauty of the local cove called Stiniva, that he stationed it as a hideout of his fictional character Porco Rosso.
