What our guests say about Vis - island Vis

Overall guest rating
Touristic offer
Friendly locals

  • Very good 3.4
    Couple United Kingdom
    Shops were very reasonably prices as was the beer in the bars. Wine is very expensive and the food in restaurants is pricy. However, the atmosphere and scenery is a joy to behold. It was the hottest week on record when we were there and stopped us doing trips as pensioners, but we would have participated more if it had been cooler. For tourists, the ferry times are not helpful, so plan to attached time to your holiday in Split.

    Excellent island for sailing or just relaxing
    Great and safe island full of various activities from sailing, hiking, scuba dicing to just enjoying the local fare and surroundings. Easy to navigate on foot and if you have access to a car, great places to visit outside the main villages of Vis and Komiza.
