Once you have regained your balance, the destination on day 5 is Vis, the emerald isle that is furthest from the mainland. There is a choice between mooring in Vis Town, in front of the old town hall, or a little further round the bay in Kut which is quieter. The walk round from Kut to the main town is a lovely meander through delightful streets. Rent a VW beetle, a scooter or take a military excursion and explore the beauty of Vis island. In the evening dine on the one of a kind restaurant Lola just a few meters from the boats.

This wonderful little town that is nestled in the middle of the Adriatic sea is situated at the base of Mount Hum (587m). It is a great view from the top, where you can find a small church and watch the sun go down.
