Many Croatians see Vis island as a really unspoiled representation of the best of the Dalmatian coast, and it has a particular place in their hearts. Tito's status as a military post halted growth for more than 40 years, enabling farming and fishing to remain dominating industries.
Vis is ready for exploration. You could ride your bike around the island or take a boat between the rocky coves. You could drink wine that was produced, pressed, and bottled just a few kilometres away from your dinner table. Just off a secluded beach, you could play a wild game of Picigin. Whatever you do, you will be unable to resist the water, which sparkles like a beautiful lady's eyes.
