Komiza Vis

The gloriously picturesque town of Komiza lies on the north-east corner of a wide bay on the west coast of the island of Vis, overlooked by the majestic Mount Hum. Vis has changed little in hundreds of years – partly because it was closed to tourism until about twenty years ago.  The landscape is lush, with forest of pine, olive groves and vineyards.

Wild herbs such as rosemary and sage grow freely and fill the air with their scent. The harbour-front at Komiza is fringed with palm trees and Venetian-style houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries and amongst the places of interest are a Fishing Museum, the 16th century Palaca Zanetova and a church known as Our Lady of the Pirates, from where a painting of the Virgin was stolen by marauding pirates only to float back into the bay when the pirates were shipwrecked..or so the story goes.

South-east of town is a 17th century Benedictine monastery, from where there are good views out over the bay. There’s a great family-orientated beach at Kamenica Bay. At night there’s a popular open-air nightclub at Kamenica.

Komiza is the best place from which to make an excursion to the famous Blue Cave of Bisevo which has been a tourist attraction since the 1880s. When the sun is at its height, water-filtered light shines in through a submerged side entrance to the cave to bathe everything in the cavern in an eerie shimmering blueness.

Back in Komiza, you’ll find some good shops and a selection of bars and restaurants.  A visit to Komiza is highly recommended on your yacht charter.
