Day 3, Monday: Korčula – Vis

Early in the morning we cruise towards the little Biševo island to visit the Blue cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon. As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable, the possibility of our visit will depend on those conditions, however you will be notified of this by the crew. Entrance to Blue Cave is to be paid on the spot (€9 per person approx). We continue towards the island of Vis, which was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy and closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm of the Mediterranean as it once was which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticate situated along the waterfront. (B, L)

Town of Hvar offers plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night. Hvar is often referred to as the sunshine and jet-set island. (B, L)
