Day 7

Not far from the island of Vis, a small paradise island rises from the sea - Biševo. It is renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, colorful underwater life and unusual natural phenomena. The coastline of Biševo is dotted with many caves, the most famous of which being the Blue Cave, in the Balun cove. On sunny days, at high noon, the sunlight penetrates the cave through its underwater entrance, is reflected off the white rock bottom and illuminates the cave in astounding shades of blue, and items submerged inside in all the shades of silver.

Entry to the Blue Cave is permitted by small rowboat only, and only in quiet,waveless weather.

Stari Grad is the oldest city in Croatia, a peer of Aristotle. It is situated at the end of a bay 4nm deep, along the northwest coast of Hvar. Due to its central position, it has been a seamen's sanctuary for centuries; today, the Stari Grad cove is an obligatory stop for sailors cruising the Adriatic.

The city is surrounded by vineyards, olive tree orchards and pine woods. Its population's main occupations are wine making, olive oil production, pomiculture, fishing and especially tourism. Various options for accomodation; taverns and restaurants serving domestic specialties and traditionally fine island wines; cultural landmarks, as well as the variety of sports and recreational activity options, attract numerous visitors.

The sea around Stari Grad is renowned for its rich flora and fauna.

Underwater fishing is possible along the southern coast of Kabel peninsula, which closes around the bay. Stari Grad is not protected against northern winds. Within the Stari Grad bay, the coves Zavala and Tiha offer shelter from these northern winds; the coves Gračište, St. Ante and Maslinica offer shelter from the southern winds.
