The “forbidden island” of Vis was not open to the public until the late 1980s. On the former runway of the airforce base, now wine is cultivated. The most striking feature of the island is the lush subtropical vegetation, which determines the image. The port of Komiža is a peaceful town on the west coast of the Island of Vis. Just five nautical miles from Komiža, there is the small island of Biševo, with the famous “Blue Cave” (Modra Špilja). Around midday, the rays of the sun will spill through an underwater opening into the cave, and reflect from the white ocean floor, thus bathing the cave into blue light.
