Day 2 | Maslinica (Brac Island) – Vis Town (Vis Island) Distance: 20 NM
Vis, famed for its crystal clear sea and protected the underwater world (including underwater in situ museums), is the furthermost island in the central Dalmatia. Being so far-flung from the shores, tourism in Vis developed slower than on islands closer to the mainland. Vis was also a military base until the 1990s, with very limited access to the island. This makes Vis today even more appealing to visitors because it’s better preserved and a way less crowded than neighboring islands of Hvar and Brac. Vis, with its hidden bays, accessible only by boat, is a dream destination for any sailor.

Komiza is small charming fisherman’s village on the west side of the island of Vis. This small fishing village is located at the foothill of Hum, a hill on the west side of the island of Vis.
