There is also a shaded lounge area next to the Jacuzzi.

The pool can be heated. Our travel bloggers did not need to use this function of the pool, but it could come in handy if you plan to visit this villa out of the main season.

Both caves are situated on Vis island so it is recommended for you to take a speedboat tour as our travel bloggers did. They booked a tour from Segorent Yachts with an experienced crew and new boats.

As you can see from the photos it was a group tour, but you can always book a private tour as well because then you can have a tailor-made tour just for you.

On the other hand, if you choose a group tour you will have a chance to meet new people.

Blue Cave

Blue Cave is situated on Bisevo, a small island near Vis. The sun enters the cave from the entrance below the water and makes it aquamarine blue. This is how the cave got its name.

Green Cave

Similar to Blue Cave the sun shines from the top and turns the walls of the cave green. There are two entrances to the cave and it is bigger than the Blue Cave.

Green Cave Vis
