DAY 4 • TUESDAY: HVAR-BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – VIS
We’ll cruise to the Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave, one of the most famous natural attractions in whole of the Adriatic Sea. Blue Cave is a water-logged cave that can be approached only by boat. The sunbeams penetrating through a submarine opening in Blue Cave get reflected from its white bottom floor, creating a stunningly magical effect of deep aquamarine and shiny silver light. However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. If that happens, we can provide an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with its historical WWII RAF Airport, along with a visit to Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic and some fine taverns which serve local produce. On the other hand, if we succeed in visiting Blue Cave, we shall cruise to the island of Vis after lunch. Being an important strategic military stronghold for a long time, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture and traditional architecture.
