Vis is located in the middle of the Adriatic sea, pretty far on the way from Croatian coast to Italy, and it feels like you’re very far away from the mainland. Everything is dependent on few daily ferries that run for two and a half hours to Split and life organizes around the giant ship sailing into the small harbour.
But the magic comes from that self-sufficiency. Vis is a pretty large island, so while you can find various beaches all around the island, amazing blue caves and smaller islets in all directions, when you get to the inside of the island it’s all different. You can find an old airstrip surrounded by vineyards, and pine forests intertwined with fields where local produce is grown. (And boy does the local produce taste amazing!)
We took scooters to explore the island and it’s an amazing way to feel the breeze on your skin, all the summer scents and truly take in the island. The only problem? We were stopping every 100 meters to take a photo, so each trip took forever!
And while on the subject, definitely visit the charming town of Komiža, right on the other side of island with an excursion to Biševo island and see the blue cave. And of course, eat a breakfast at Frutarija, lunch at Aerodrom and dinner at Lola bar in town of Vis.
Here are more ideas if you’d like.
The highlight of our trips was, of course, the weddings. That’s what a Vis wedding photographer & videographer does, after all. The most popular venue for the ceremony and dinner receptions is always the amazing Fort George. It’s a mighty fort perched on top of a hill overlooking the town of Vis, its bay and open Adriatic sea. Once it was a strategic position, and today it’s just a stunning venue with an amazing view all around; not to mention the amazing food they offer!
The whole experience was amazing and we highly recommend Vis for anyone after amazing food and beautiful nature, away from all the hustle and bustle of Adriatic tourism. From the charming villages to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, Vis is the perfect setting for a memorable wedding.
