Tour description

Hikers will have a chance to explore island Biševo from inside out, by going into it, over it and around it. After departing and 25 min. of boat ride, we’ll arrive at Biševo Island at entering point of famous Blue Cave. When we visit Blue Cave (optional), we’ll take a 3 km guided hiking tour across the island.This panoramic walk from island Biševo east coast to its west coast will take you trough main settlement Polje with Benedictine monastery of “St. Sylvester the Pope” from 1050. which was soon abandoned because of the danger of the pirates. Along with the ruins of the monastery, the remains of the original church of St. Sylvester, built in 11th century are located. In today’s church, a part of the inscription of priest Ivan, the founder of the monastery, and a fragment of the Greek epitaph times are embedded. Hiking will end when you reach the sandy beach of the Porat bay where you’ll meet the skipper, board on the boat and sail on. After a short ride, we’ll have a break and time for swimming and snorkelling. And then, another short ride will get you to the south westerly point of the island where the paddle board safari begins.
People who’ve done it so far, said it was an unique experience. After aprox. 1:20 h of easy and panoramic paddle boarding along scenic coastline, safari ends up by paddling in another cave, less known but more exciting one. It is Monk Seal Cave on the south easterly part of the island Biševo. Again, more time for swimming & snorkelling in front of the cave.
Note that boat is following and securing paddle boarders so anyone can take a rest at any time during tour. After approx. 25 min. of boat ride, you’ll be back in our base from where we have
started.

The island of Biševo is an island located in the centre of the Dalmatian archipelago, five kilometres south west of the island of Vis, with population of 19 people (2011. census data) and with surface area of 5.92 square kilometres and with 18.147 km long coast. Many archaeological findings confirm that the island has been inhabited since prehistoric times, as well as in ancient Greek and ancient Roman times. In 1050. priest Ivan from Split founded the Benedictine monastery of  "St. Sylvester the Pope" on Biševo which was soon abandoned because of the danger of the pirates. Along with the ruins of the monastery, the remains of the original church of St. Sylvester, built in 11th century are located. In today's church, a part of the inscription of priest Ivan, the founder of the monastery, and a fragment of the Greek epitaph times are embedded.
Most of coastline is represented by high cliffs and high overhanging walls, while some of the most beautiful beaches are located in several bays. Stony shore of the island hides many bays and coves, as well as a large number of caves (26 according to some authors). Of the numerous coastal caves, the most famous are Modra or Biševska cave and Medvedina. Cave Medvidina is located on the southern coast of the island, below the highest peak of the island, the Straženice. Medvidina is 160 meter deep long cave that narrows down to the end, where small pebble beach is located. The cave used to be inhabited by Mediterranean monk seal, and it was named after it. The entrance to the cave is 14 metres wide and 20 meters high. The blue cave of Biševo (Blue grotto) is located on the eastern coast of the island Bisevo in the bay Balun. It consists of two halls, with total length of 36 m. It was hollowed by waves and it is partly submerged. Through a natural opening below the sea level sunlight at mid-day penetrates to the white rocks on the bottom, where they are reflected to illuminate the walls of the cave in blue and objects under the water in silvery color. The cave has always been known to local population, but it was popularised by the Austrian diplomat and naturalist Eugene Ransonnet-Villez since 1884. The Bisevo cave is protected since 1951. as a geomorphological monument of nature. The proof that the sea around Biševo still hides many secrets is a recent discovery of another wreckage of the aircraft from Second World War, most likely heavy bomber B24 Liberator, at a depth of 85-90 meters and on the western side of the island.Most popular sandy beaches are in Porat and Salbunora and pebble beach in Mezuporat. Island is a birth place of Mate Martin Bogdanović, key person in history of American fish industry and  founder of Star-Kist Tuna.
