you want to escape from it all, far from rush of hotel life
and the impersonal atmosphere, little island of Bisevo might
be the right place for you.
Bisevo is an island far into the open sea, southwest of
the island of Vis. It has area of only 5.84 sq km
with population 14 , but there is only one real permanent
resident, an elderly lady. The settlements on the island
are: Potok, Polje, Nevaja, Mezuporat and Salbunara.The hilly
island, of limestone formation, reaches 140 m and in the
middle of the island is a small field with vines and olive-groves.
It is is a favorite destination of excursionists from Vis
but also from other Dalmatian islands. Thanks to fast boats
it is reached very easily from more distant places and a
or one-day excursion will be a pleasant experience to everyone.
First you visit the Blue Cave, then comes the swimming in
one of the coves, and it is all followed by the obligatory
fish lunch. The island has several caves, the most famous
being the Blue Cave (Modra Spilja) or Blue Grotto.
It resembles the cave on Capri, Italy, but is much more
attractive and luxuriant. Around noon, when the sea is calm,
sunbeams that penetrate through the submarine opening in
the Blue Cave, reflect from the white bottom floor and colour
the cave in blue and objects in the water in silver. The
cave is accessible since 1884, and approach is possible
only by boat.
The island is thought the year connected with Vis by a boat
coast is characterized by a number of caves and immaculately
clean and clear sea. One of the most beautiful is Porat
with a beautiful large sandy beach. The beach is facing
west and it is hidden from strong winds. There is a small
beach bar and a fish restaurant where you can enjoy freshest
food you can imagine and excellent Plavac wine from Bisevo.
The coastal area is extremely rich in fish.
Without a doubt we can say that Bisevo is one of the rare
untouched places in the Mediterranean, a true gem.
