Island of Vis, also known as the pearl among Croatian Adriatic, used to be a military zone during Yugoslavia and it was forbidden for foreigners until late 1980s. Thanks to the natural beauty, unique history and cultural heritage, the island Vis became a very famous tourist destination. The movie Mamma mia 2 was filmed on this amazing island. While visiting Vis, an excursion to Modra Špilja (Blue Cave) and/or Green Cave is a must. The visit to Modra špilja cave is possible by tender, but without using the outboard engine. The skipper has to manuevre the yacht in front of the entrance while the crew has to row the tender into the cave. The other possibility to visit the cave is if the yacht is moored or anchored at Mezoporat while visitors are taken to the cave by the official tour-boat. The best and the fastest option is to take a boat tour for both locations.
