BLUE CAVE TOUR ( Route 5 Islands )
The Blue Cave
The Blue cave is located in the small bay of Balun on the island of Biševo.
It is 24 m long, 10-12 meters wide, 15 inches tall and 16 m deep. The entrance to the cave is about 1.5 m high and about 2.5 m wide with a long sea corridor.
The cave has two openings, one smaller, one artificially deepened, through which the boat can pass. The other opening is like a vault and much wider, on the south side of the cave, below the sea level. The underwater canopy through the cave floods the sunlight, which, passing through the water, first disappears, and then falls from the bottom of the cave, filling the entire cave with a silver-blue resin.
Komiža ( Vis island )
Situated in a deep bay, whose eastern shore abounds with large pebble beaches (Kamenica, Gusarica, Nova Pošta, Velo Žalo), Komiža offers excellent visitor opportunities: quality accommodations (hotels and apartments), and a number of cultural and historic sites, monasteries and fortresses. It is known for its fishermen.
Sports and recreational facilities include three boccia courts, as well as various playgrounds for basketball, handball and football. Water sports and diving are part of the towns summer activities.
Stiniva Bay ( Vis island )
Stiniva beach is located on the south side of the island of Vis in the eponymous Stiniva Bay. The bay is 600 meters long and 100 meters wide, but the beach is only 35 meters long, with a seaside entrance that is only 5 meters wide. The beach is made of pebbles, surrounded by steep cliffs and accessible from the island’s mainland and the sea.
If the mere beauty of the beach and its unique shape isn’t enough for you, you can take a look around several fishermen’s houses located directly on the beach. These houses are protected as a Natural reserve, as well as the beach. Stiniva beach is also very attractive to all lovers of the sea depths and water underworld, so enjoy diving at the mouth of Stiniva beach. Take care of the boats sailing to Stiniva and you’re good to go.
Budikovac is surrounded by several small islets, with stony beaches and some vegetation, not unlike itself, but what makes this lagoon special is its famous blue water and interesting shape and location. The lagoon itself is the only gravel beach on the island, making it perfect for sunbathing and relaxation, but the rest of the island is rocky, which makes it great for cliff-diving, fishing and snorkelling. The island is populated, though with only one person living there year round, excluding the still functional and crewed old lighthouse nearby. There’s a farm and a lovely vintage restaurant with many traditional seafood dishes and wine, but Budikovac is otherwise independent from the rest of the world. Most parts of the Adriatic are similar, with tradition and nature coming together, but the loneliness and peace of Budikovac give it its own, special charm.
Most visitors to Hvar Town visit the crystal-clear waters, hidden beaches and deserted lagoons of the Pakleni Islands (Pakleni otoci), a gorgeous chain of wooded isles that stretches out immediately in front of the town. Although the name is often translated as ‘Hell’s Islands’, it’s thought to derive from paklina, a pine resin that was once harvested here to waterproof boats.
