Stiniva cove is a natural phenomenon of an attractive and unusual appearance situated on the south side of the island of Vis. The entrance to the cove from the sea is relatively small (4-5m), then expands and bays within a beautiful beach. Probably it was produced by collapsed cave ceiling in the geologic past, now it is a tourist attraction for its preserved natural beauty. The cove was protected as a natural monument in 1967, preserving now days the same pristine beauty thanks to a difficult access. There is no direct car road to the bay and the sea entrance is too narrow for yachts.

Prepare yourself for a half hour long trek down on a very steep path. Access from the sea is possible with a small boat.
