Welcome to the island of Vis, the most distant inhabited island of Croatia.

Vis belongs to a group of middle-dalmatian islands, along with the islands Brač, Šolta and Hvar. It is located on the Adriatic billow, halfway between the Otrant Gates and the bay of Trst. It is two hours and fifteen minutes of smooth sailing by ferry away; or an hour and fifteen minutes of sailing by a quick boat. The distance is 45 km from the mainland and 8 km from the island of Hvar. The surface of the island is 90 km2, with the length of the island shore being 75 kilometers of rocks, caves and beautiful, hidden basins with beaches.

The higher sea surface contains the archipelago of islands consisting of St. Andrew, Brusnik, Jabuka, Biševo and Palagruža.
