"With its medieval villages, deserted beaches, ancient ruins, rambling olive groves and the best vineyards in Dalmatia, Vis is poised to become the next "it spot" for sun and fun on the Adriatic."
Voted amongst the Top Ten Little Known Dream Islands by Yahoo Travel.

"Tucked away on the Western rim of Croatia's Dalmatian archipelago, Vis has been named one of the 10 best-preserved islands in the Mediterranean by the World Wildlife Fund. Its clear azure waters contain seagrass meadows, dolphins, rare turtles and sardine, and the locals' rejection of a planned tuna farm suggest the island is standing firm against commercial development.

"I love Vis, Croatia's most distant island, which is sensational for seafood, locally made wine and escapism...as close to perfection as eating out gets...numberless beaches washed by seas clear to 100ft, you can swim in Bisevo's Blue Cave as it flouresces turquoise at midday. Magic."

"Vis announces itself gloriously. The water, clear as a freshly polished mirror, is mid-0ocean blue. The shore is fringed by a ramshackle assortment of grey-stone houses...[it] is not like anywhere else...a haven for lovers of wine, waves, wild flowers...and willow-wielding cricketers!"

"The WWF has declared Vis one the the Mediterranean's last remaining untouched natural habitats. The interior of the island is much akin to a vast, wild rock garden with rosemary, sage and garlic carpeting the hillsides and softening the terraces of vineyards and olive groves...our hosts on Vis never ceased to delight us with their culinary skills and respect for nature.

"I wanted to come to the island of Vis in the Adriatic, a two hour ferry ride from the Croatian coastal town of Split, because I read somewhere that it's what Mediterranean islands once were, before mass tourism. I came because I wanted to see the old Med. The Zorba the Greek Med, a place full of wizened old men chatting the shade, a place of olive oil and strong wine...

"Vis has orchards of 1,000 year old carob trees, rare orchids, plants and herbs that are dying out elsewhere in the Mediterranean, the most densely developed and visited tourist region in the world...

"Croatia in the summertime is a seductive place. At night, on board a yacht in a secluded bay near the island of Vis, it is hard to conjure up the bloody images of war that still dog the country's tourism industry. The sea is calm, the sky is sprinkled with stars and the only sound is the hum of dinner conversation below deck..

"If you want to go the extra mile, consider the more remote islands. A two-week holiday could include Vis, for example, a former navy island that was off-limits until 1989 and so escaped tourist development. It comes with a little sister, Bisevo, home of a blue grotto to rival Capri's in everything but crowds.

"Picture this: you're sipping a cappuccino on the sun-baked wooden deck of a ferry steaming between idyllic islands. A pair of dolphins chase at the stern and two yachts - their blue and white sails puffed out pompously - race towards your wash. Otherwise the water is as smooth as a satin sheet. The Seychelles? South East Asia? Absolutely not. The ship is called Dubrovnik, and this is island-hopping, Croatian-style
