The Blue Cave can only be approached by boat and sometimes it can happen that due to winds, waves, and currents, the access to the cave is not possible. We can only know about the sea conditions and the possibility of entrance on the same morning of the visit. In case we are lucky enough to get to see the Blue Cave, we will arrive in Vis after lunch. Vis is a small town on the homonymous island, well known for its strategic importance through the years.
