Blue Cave from Makarska can seem like a long and not-so-pleasant journey. Many are interested in the option of going by public transport, ie by boat or ferry, which is challenging and involves a good and detailed organization to get everything there. Namely, there is no direct boat line from Makarska to either Vis or Biševo, so you should go to Vis from Split by ferry. The ferry from Split departs at 9 am, and the journey to Vis takes about 2 hours and 20 minutes. When you reach Vis, you still have a boat ride to Biševo and the cave.

That way, it will be much easier for you than trying to visit everything in one day, and you will certainly enjoy it more without pressure and hurry.

If you are going on this trip during the summer months, the tips are very simple. Bring everything you need for a day at the beach and swimming. A cap or hat and cream with a protective factor, a beach towel, and other clothes are a must. spare bathing suits will also come in handy, and it’s not bad to have extra amounts of water and a small snack like seasonal fruit, for example. If you are going on this excursion in early summer or late autumn, bring a vest or similar item of clothing so that you are not cold when you return to Makarska.
A lot of people visit the Blue Cave every day, and that’s why the entrance is strictly controlled.
