Komiža is positioned in the deep-lying open port on the western coastline of the island of Vis and at the foot of nearly 600 meter high Mt. Hum.

The use of mooring, electric power and fresh water is included in the price of the buoy. Komiža amazes its visitors with narrow streets, attractive stone houses squeezed together along the harbor and numerous beaches.
