Snapshot of Croatia: Vis (A Vision of Beauty)
Vis is an island full of secrets best discovered first-hand.
The Telegraph and Conde Nast Traveller have both (in separate articles) described Vis as an island fit for a James Bond movie — a reference that might get a chuckle out of its 3,000 residents, who love this calm and tranquil island for its stillness and natural beauty — but a particularly apt one for wide-eyed visitors mesmerized by the sparkling waters, hidden coves, rocky cliffs and winding roads fit for an Aston Martin. Of course, the island’s history as a former naval base, with secret tunnels and underground lairs, may add to its 007 mystique. (See all of Vis’ secrets on our Extraordinary Dalmatian Islands Journey.)
Then again, it might be the island’s proximity to Green Cave, a natural glimmering show cave that would make any Bond villain jealous.
Vis is one of the best spots on the Adriatic Coast for kayaking; you can even paddle right into Green Cave for stunning photography.
The calm waters of Vis all but require a swim when visiting — you may even find some company!
The coasts are only the very tip of the iceberg for Vis, which is also home to vineyards, wineries, fishermen’s markets and some of Croatia’s best restaurants, like the seaside Kanoba Bako.
