Stiniva cove

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.
To reach Stiniva cove by land, after Plisko Polje take a left turn and continue on feet by a dirt track that leads down to the stunning Stiniva Bay. Prepare yourself for a half hour long trek down on a very steep path. Access from the sea is possible with a small boat. There are available one day excursion taxi boats at Rukavac cove, passing along on its path to Stiniva bay by other attractive sightseeing spots such as Srebrna (silver) beach.

Unbelievable place

Me and my husband stayed last summer at Milna bay and decided to find out about the cove of Stiniva, that we saw so many times on Croatia travel brochures. We reached a little parking lot in less than a 10 min. car drive. It was the easy part. Than we took a 30 min. walk long steep path (I was very happy to have my sport gear with me) enjoying an impressive view of the open sea and Stiniva bay. Take lots of water though, because you'll have to do that hike back up again! For those who can't imagine a trip without having a place to eat and drink, don't worry there is a small restaurant, located in a small fisherman house on the beach.
