Vis 824-1024

Planning to stop in Vis with your yacht? Here are best things to there!

The island of Vis is one of the most precious beauties in Dalmatia, famous for its thriving fishing industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. 

Since it is the farthest inhabited island off the Croatian mainland, it remained untouched by massive tourism. That's why it is an attractive choice for those looking for privacy.


And the easiest way to reach this island is to start your cruise from Split and after visiting a few islands along the way you can reach Vis and enjoy your stay.

Goolets can plan your route that way for perfect distance and timing. Also, during your stay there, our concierge team will take you to stunning places on this island, like the Stiniva beach and Blue Cave.

  • The Ancient Greeks called it Issa

At the beginning of the 16th century, on the peninsula of Prirovo, the Conventual Franciscans built a monastery and a church of St. Jerome. The monastery was built on the foundations of an ancient Roman theater.
