Yes it's beautiful. It's also very small. If you get there early then you will have ten minutes of peace before the speedboats rock up and disgorge the visitors.. creating waves noise and exhaust There's no real management of these places. The blue hole also...More

Boats can’t pull into this cove so if you’re going with a tour, ask for a life jacket because you will have to swim quite far to get to the beach. Only two in our party thought to ask for life jackets, as they hadn’t...More

This little cove is one of the highlights Vis has to offer. It's often showcased in the travel guides an doesn't disappoint. We sailed in with a group of friends. The bay is roped of to boats a little distance out. So swimming in is...More

Got there by boat. Extremely crowded. Small beach full of people - some coming on foot (which takes some time - steep climb, don't try it in flip-flops) but majority by boats. It gets so crammed that takes away any beauty and joy. Maybe in...More

The beauty of the place was lost with the sheer number of boats hovering by the drop off point. You get dropped off by your boat and then swim to the beach. Coming back, you have to find your boat which means swimming between bobbing...More

Agree with the other two answers, unfortunately Porec is too far for a day trip. Look at a map Porec is in Istria region and Stivina is on the Island of Vis. But if you don't have the time on your trip to Croatia this... More
