Another local attraction is the beach of Zlatni rat (Golden cape) in Bol, favoured by the surfers and the tanning army.

It is a mystery how the first settlers managed to cross 50 kilometers of sea to inhabit Vis in the Neolithic, but they got there. Being farthest from the Croatian coast, it has the cleanest sea (and the fact that it was an off-limits military base for almost 50 years surely helped). Taste the simple and delicious local dishes accompanied by a glass of local white wine called vugava.

Lipanović winery tucked away in old military tunnels. Roki’s eco farm and vineyards, where you will enjoy the best nature Vis has to offer. Hidden turquoise coves that can only be accessed by boat.

The Pakleni islands, a tiny archipelago across from the town of Hvar covered with pines and a lush rich tropical garden dating back to 1800.

The Island of Korčula
Some of the best Croatian whites come from Korčula, made from autochthonous pošip grape variety. Greeks called it Korkyra Melaina (meaning Black Corfu). Renowned world traveller and adventurer Marco Polo was supposedly born here, among the thick walls of a medieval town-fort. All this is but a sliver of cultural, artistic and historical treasures Korčula has in stock.
