Located at the western end of Vis at the back of an enormous natural amphitheater of Zaljev Komiza this impressive town and busy fishing port has a long harbour wall with mooring depths of 2-3 metres (some sources suggest 4 metres). Mooring is stern or bow to, with lazy-lines. Deputy harbour master/dock hands are available to assist and will direct you to where they want you to tie up. This is a popular harbour with many restaurants and is often busy and is frequently full before 16: 00 hrs. Put out plenty of fenders on both side as they tend to wedge boats in very tight (see this news) which is not a bad thing as long as you are prepared.
From the harbour wall it is a short walk into the town (2 minutes) where you will find all the usual services. You can also anchor in the bay, though it is recommended during the Bora that you then run a line to the stone bollards sited in the water towards the shore, for additional security. The bottom is reported as mud with good holding.
When the weather is from the west or south-west big sea can run into the harbour making the approach difficult.
The harbour office - located at the shore end of the breakwater is friendly and helpful but be aware that it is a ‘cash-only’ operation (as of 2009); they do not take any cards at all.
