Blue Cave & Monk Seal Cave
Modra or Biševska cave ( Blue Cave) and Medvidina ( Monk Seal Cave) are the most famous coastal coves in the Split archipelago.
Cave Medvidina is on the southern coast of the island, below the highest peak of the island, the Straženice. Medvidina is 160 meters deep long cave that narrows down to the end where a small pebble beach is located. Mediterranean monk seal inhabited the cave, and the name comes after it. The entrance to the cave is 14 meters wide and 20 meters high.
The Blue cave is on the eastern coast of the island Biševo in the bay Balun. It comprises two halls, with a total length of 36 m.
At mid-day, through a natural opening below the sea level, the sunlight penetrates to the white rocks on the bottom and illuminate the cave walls in blue and underwater objects in a silvery color.
Local food can be tasted in several small restaurants on the island. In Mezoporat is a smaller port with 10 berths and protected from W and NW winds.
