Last two years, we’ve been skipping taking holidays and visiting the islands during the peak of the season. That time of year is surely beautiful, but due to the economical reasons and personal preferences, we’ve decided to go to the island of Vis in September.
Visiting Croatian islands during the summer months is something that become a habit of mine and summer (if I’m in Croatia) without frequent visits to the islands is unimaginable. Islands here are so easily reachable and everybody can go and make a daily trip. The closest one to the city of Split, where I come from, is the island of Šolta, and it takes only 50 minutes by ferry.
Island of Vis is a bit far off. By ferry it takes around 2 1/2 hours and by katamaran it takes a bit less. Island of Vis is famous for its beautiful coves, for natural and unspoiled beauty, beautiful red roofs, and military era that left so many traces on this island. (There are even military tours organized by tourist agencies… skipped this part).
So without saying much more, I’ll just let the pics tell the story of this piece of heaven on Earth.
A few tips:
The best way to see and explore the island is definitely by scooter. You don’t need driver’s permit as you can always rent 50 cc scooter
Place to eat – Buffet Vis (in the very center of the city of Vis, just few steps from the sea. Simple decorations, but food and ambiance is great.), local food, fresh fish, great prices. And most importantly …so tasty! 😉
