Vis hidden beaches
like an arrowhead, Vis is situated further offshore than
any inhabited Adriatic island. For decades it was closed
for foreign tourists because of military reasons. This and
it's remoteness are the reason it has never been overrun
by tourists. Its isolation still keeps hordes of package-oriented
tourists away, but it became a favorite island for many
independent travelers, loved by its laid-back air and an
Vis has many splendid beaches especially near Komiza town,
with a palm-fringed seafront. The eastern coast of the sandy
bottom bay of Komiza is mostly dotted with pebble beaches
(Gusarica, Nova posta, Velo zalo and
others), while there are also some sandy beaches.
Beautiful coves and beaches can be found also near Vis town.
Nice sandy and pebble beaches (Parja, Rogacic,
Mala and Vela Svitnja, etc.) are situated near the

as Vis' Hawaii, situated 6km from Vis town on the northeastern
coast of the island. It is a beautiful sandy bay with an
interesting restaurant with home atmosphere. There is a
beautiful lighthouse and few private apartments and whole
houses to rent. Some owners offer a taxi boat service to
Vis town. This is a perfect place to anyone seeking peace
and quiet, a vacation away from civilization. No phones,
no running waters but rainwater cisterns. Stoncica also
has a good mooring for nautical tourists.
