Stiniva Beach, Island Vis
The hidden beauty
Stiniva beach is located on the island of Vis in southern Croatia. It is a beautiful hidden beach on the southern part of the island. Surrounded by high cliffs, one part of this fantastic pebble beach is always in the shade, so you can also hide from the hot midday sun, parasol and beach chairs are not available for rent on the beach. This beach is about 35 meters long with small pebbles and perfectly clear sea. This breathtaking bay can be reached by boat or on foot. There are several trips organized from the town of Vis, but if you want to emerge yourself in this beautiful nature that offers the island we advise you to go on foot taking the narrow steep path that goes from the hamlet Žužeca. It will take about 15 minutes to reach the bay and the beach. Or you can rent a boat in the town of Vis and visit this beach. This is more of an option if you would like to find “your very own beach” in some hidden bay other than visiting Stiniva beach that in summer can be very crowded.
The wild landscape and a clean turquoise sea will give you some unforgettable moments. If you have a chance to reach the beach by boat its sea entrance which is very narrow (about 5 meters) will really leave you breathless. There is also a small bar in the bay so you can refresh yourself. If you plan on visiting the island of Vis, other than this beach there are lots of other bays and beaches you can visit, but we recommend you to go to the islet of Bisevo which is only a few miles away from the island of Vis and visit the Blue Cave (Modra Spilja) which will give you a whole new kind of experience. There are numerous tours from the Island of Vis and the Island of Hvar that you can take to see this spectacular cave and other caves and bays nearby.
