“If you go out to dine only once when on Vis, this is the place. While almost all restaurants offers traditional dalmatian cuisine (typically grilled fish or lamb), Lola offers a more cross-over-ish food, set in a stunningly beautiful garden. Booking is necessary (text owner Ivica at +385955633246 and send Our best regards). If you don't want to splash out on a full dinner here (it is quite expensive by croatian standards - full a la carte w wine is approx 400 kn/pers), you should at the very least enjoy a drink at the wonderful cocktail terrace. Indeed, Lola would also be a first choice for us as a bar. ”

“During daytime and evening this is the not-so-charming hang-out for local gawkers and drinkers, set just across from the ferry landing. After midnight, however, when everything else closes, Bejbi turns into a swinging place where anyone may show up and anything can happen.”

“It can be visited by boat from Rukavac or as a part of boat tour around the island. The best time to visit is around midday as the special position of the sun gives the cave light green effect. You can jump from the top (only if experienced!) and swim inside the cave.”

Beach
“Tiny, crowded and hard to get to, but voted one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. To actually go to the beach, the best way is to go there by scooter then walk down from the road to the beach. The trail is very steep and kind of long, so wear good walking shoes. It would take me a half-hour to walk down, but you may be faster.”
