The first saturday in august
Fishermen's Night is a favorite festival not only amongst the people of Vis but also amongst the islanders from nearby islands, the mainland and tourists from around the world. With guaranteed fun for the young and the old (or the young at heart), it is a musical and gastronomic festival that was created on the waterfront promenade, where only one thing is for sure- you won't be bored for a second!
Summer in Komiža
Throughout the summer you can join us in a variety of cultural events on the waterfront promenade and in cultural centers in Komiža. The schedule of events is regularly posted on billboards at the site, on the Tourist Board of Komiža's website or in the Tourist Board of Komiža's office.
Your ideal vacation
We enjoyed this beautiful stone house right next to the beach. The view of the sea and of Komiža is breathtaking!
The best thing about this house is that you can literally walk right into the sea as soon as you wake up.
