Bisevo island

Bisevo is located in the center of the Dalmatian island chain, 5 km SW of the Island of Vis. There lives just couple of people throughout a entire year. The island of Bisevo is well-known excursion spot: one-day trips are arranged from Komiza and Vis, but also from other islands in neighborhood. Of approximately ten caves spread all around Bisevo's shoreline, the Blue Cave is the most impressive. Between 11am and 11pm on a bright day, flashes of the sun penetrating and illuminate the cave with a shining blue light while items below the surface shimmer in silver and pink. The outcome is spooky and supernatural particularly if you're fortunate enough to experience it when the cave is uncrowded which it definitely won't be if you arrive in top summer months (July and August) . Blue Cave has been accessible ever since 1884, and the access to the cave is only possible by motorboat.

Other attractions

Even though plainly the most impressive attraction, the Blue Cave is among a few sights on Bisevo. If you have your personal vessel you can check out approximately 9 other caves dispersed throughout the shoreline. Initially inhabited by Benedictine priests, the island still houses the 11th-century Benedictine Church of St Silvester. And there are a few fantastic coves hidden along the coast, several of which are sandy. The Benedict abbey St. Silvestar was built in year 1050, but was leave behind around 200 years later due to the fact that marauder assaults made the area unsafe. Priests relocated in the town Komiza at island Vis.
