3. Biševo – Blue Cave tour

This tour, except for the Pakleni (or Paklinski) Islands also takes you to Stiniva beach on Vis, as well as on Budikovac island.
But the real sensation of this 5 islands tour is Blue Cave – the most attractive sight of the island of Biševo. It is THE number 1 destination for tourists from all around the world and therefore raises the popuarity of the whole island. Unfortunately, swimming isn't allowed in the cave, but when you enter it, you will immediately realize why you cannot swim there. It can only be visited with a small boat with a few people on board.
