Tuesday HVAR – VIS
We set off early to the little Biševo island to visit the Blue Caves, a truly unique and magnificent natural phenomenon. We will arrive at the Blue Cave at the most opportune time to enjoy the sunlight reflecting through the sea floor turning the entire cave into an aquamarine colour and leaving objects in the water a shimmering silver colour. The cruise then continues to the Island of Vis, which was historically a strategic navy harbour but is now closed. Vis is one of the most outer Adriatic islands and as such it has been fairly isolated compared to many of the other islands. This isolation has preserved its traditional Croatian charm and it serves as a reminder to visitors of what Mediterranean life was like before tourists discovered the islands. We will spend the night on the island and guests will be able to sample a selection of delicious sea food restaurants and also if interested visit the remains of the Roman thermal Place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the view of beautiful ”Villae Rusticae” situated along the coast.
