Vis Gay Travel Experiences
Vis is famous for day trip cave tours. These are the beautiful images of glowing water you find all over Instagram. You can arrange a tour with one of the local agencies to see the green cave and/or the blue cave.
Entrance to the blue cave is only possible if the sea is not too rough, but the other sites are accessible all the time.
I walked through these streets both during the day and night. The apartment entrances look like something out of a magazine! Closer to the waterfront there are many small shops selling high-end gifts and art as well.
There are beautiful rock formations for cliff diving around the island. Make sure to spend a bit of time a Stiniva Beach. The water is clear and it is a great scenic, secluded spot.
Gay Travel Safety in Croatia
Many locals do support homosexuality and equal rights for LGBT individuals. Homophobic comments can be made in any country, but gay travelers in Croatia should still make sure they are in a safe environment before displaying any affection.
Vis Bars & The Gay Nightlife Experience
Lambik Bar & Bistro is my top recommendation for cocktails. Lambik has an incredible ambiance. It feels like a little castle!
Beautiful original stonework and inviting lighting make this bar stand out in my mind as one of the cutest spots in Vis. They have an indoor-outdoor seating area and the prices are more than reasonable.
Visit Bejbi Bar for evening cocktails or late-night drinks. They’re conveniently located along the waterfront. I spent a few hours after dinner here at Bejbi Bar with friends and stayed until closing. It isn’t really a dance club but they have a fun, upbeat vibe.
There are no official Vis gay bars or gay clubs, although it is possible you may come across some gay travelers while exploring the island!
Vis Gay Travel Tips
Even though I stayed on a sailboat, it was easy to figure out the best area to stay. You’ll fall in love with Vis even more by staying along one of the adorable residential streets just like these Vis VRBO rentals, not too far from the port.
If you’re taking part in a gay sailing trip as I did, make sure to bring some anti-nausea medicine! The water in the port was quite rough the day and night I stayed in Vis; I got a little seasick!
Luckily there are several pharmacies nearby if you forget. Note that not every island has a pharmacy, so if you’re going to a smaller island, prepare yourself!

How Expensive is Croatia?
So yes, Croatia is expensive in relative terms. Cheap food is hard to come by, but there are still some pizzerias where you can get a medium sized personal pizza for the equivalent of ten Euros.

Vis Gay Life & Croatia LGBT Rights
Croatia provides a wealth of protections to the LGBT community, however gay life in Croatia for locals is not exactly easy. Most local Croatians keep their sexuality hidden from the public eye out of fear of discrimination.
They do not usually express their identity openly. Hate speech has been on the rise against LGBT individuals and Serbs prior to 2017, according to reports compiled that year on the issue.
Most anti-LGBT sentiment can be found in the northwest portion of Croatia. The rest of the country is not so fiercely opposed.
Large centers like Dubrovnik and Zagreb advertise themselves as gay-friendly tourist destinations, however this does not exactly mean discrimination by locals does not occur.
