The Island of Vis, known for its fishermen and seafarers, lies far from the mainland and its troubles. The Greeks founded their first colony on Vis (named Issa) and planted the first grapevine there as early as the 4th century. A Franciscan monastery was built on the remains of the Greek and Roman theatre in the small town of Vis in the 16th century. There are plenty of natural pebble beaches on Vis, and the sea is extremely clean and transparent, perfect for diving, jet ski, windsurfing, and other activities. The Island of Biševo is on the south-west of the Island of Vis, having much cave carved into its steep coast. The Blue Cave (Modra spilja) has entrances both above and below sea level. When the sea is calm, the light diffracts and paints the interior of the cave blue, and anything below the water line, silver.
