Island Vis is definitely one of our favorite destinations. If you have enough time sailing around whole island is a must! At least one overnight in Vis, 2nd in Komiza and eve third in some of numerous spectacular bays is recommended, of course depending on weather conditions and lenght of your holidays. Place Vis is far away from the coast, more than 25 nautical miles from Marina Kastela, and you will need more than 5 hours to reach it.
Our last visit was in second half of June/ 2012 (Sunday) and we managed to catch excellent mooring place in Vis harbor around 17.00h without any problems (it was enough place even after 19.00h).
In small talk with locals we find out that biggest crowd is Tuesdays & Wednesdays.
When approaching to Vis harbor, you will notice that there are two ports/ marinas- one in bay Kut (left) which is totally calm in evening (maybe even too calm) and nearby to excellent restaurants, and port Vis – which is also calm, but not too calm as Kut, with light murmur in the evening, few coffee bars, bakery, and excellent pancakes stand.
After safe mooring in port, I recommend visiting bay Kut by walk or by dinghy, where you can find very best restaurants in this area (and wider).
Vis harbor is pretty safe, only not so comfortable when is bura (north wind).
Vis harbor is managed by private Company, and even it has shower it is very likely that you wont find them if you dont know that they are existing
They are located nearby small reception, behind square. We were not so lucky to find them, and since no one informed us about this facility we were not using them.
In port of Vis you can anchorage as well, with note that fees are applicable, with organized garbage pick up.
Best restourants are in bay of Kut, my personal choice is Pojoda, traditional food which you can not try on other places, e.g, shrimps with orzo and peas, calamari with orzo and lentils. Portions are abundant, prices moderate. Fish grill and other specialties are recommended.
Second restaurant is recommended from our old guests- Vatrica, and we got an information that Kaliopa is making excellent pasta-beans.
Next bay ideal for anchorage and swimming- a must visit- is bay Rogacic. In this bay there is an army tunnel which was used for hiding boats in 2nd world war, and now is excellent place for diving and swimming.
I definitely recommend visiting to Green cave, which is located on small islet Ravnik. In front of Green cave sea is too deep for anchoring, and one crew member needs to stay on board.
Next must visit after Green cave on your route is bay Stiniva, which is in my opinion one of the best bays at Adriatic sea. Stiniva is excellent for spending swimming afternoon (or morning)- with sandy beach. It is necessary to be careful while anchoring here, and it is not good place for staying on Jugo (South wind)- since it is unprotected.
Whole south-east coast of Vis is very unusual, rocky and with small caves and interesting bays.
