Komiža is definitely somewhere I would include in my top 5 favourite destinations in Croatia. When you arrive at the little port town of Vis, on the island of the same name, you still have a steep mountain pass to traverse followed by a drive along a breathtaking road that seems almost to plunge straight down to the sea just before you finally arrive at the lively, animated and adorable little old town of Komiža. The reason I was so taken with this town is probably because it still has the kind of traditionally authentic character that few coastal destinations in Croatia have managed to retain.
In the evenings, when it's the summer holiday season, the little harbour becomes a lively, animated place, with people sat out on the terraces of its numerous restaurants enjoying seafood dishes accompanied by local wines, which are amongst the best in the country here. There are lots of isolated beaches where you can go bathing during the day in and around Komiža, as well as some incredible diving spots. There are also a number of places where you can hire bicycles in the town, despite the fact that the island's terrain is steeply hilly.
