Uvala Stiniva, Vis
Walk, panoramic view, beach, anchorage
This beautiful and impressive bay can be approached either from the land or the sea. Approaching from the land there is a large car park above the bay, then a way-marked path winds its way down to the shore. During our visit on foot (2006) the path was quite rugged and best covered in a decent pair of shoes or sandals.
On the shore Uvala Stiniva is a small enclosed bay with a broad pebble beach that gives way onto a small lagoon. Beyond this is a very constricted entrance that opens on to a long narrow inlet from the sea. This bay was formed when roof of an enormous cave collapsed to create the inner lagoon. This is a great place for the scenery and for swimming.
There is also a seasonal cafe on the beach itself.
Use the car parks clearly laid out above the bay and approach on foot. Or by boat anchor and either swim or take the tender in to the beach. If using an outboard be aware of swimmers in the water particularly once in the inner bay. For those anchoring overnight consider taking a line ashore.
