The traditional fishing town is located at the base of Hum hill on the west side of the island of Vis. Cut off from the rest of the island by the hill, it faces the sea and the Komiža archipelago whose system includes the most distant Adriatic islands rich in fish, particularly tuna - Biševo, Palagruža, Jabuka, etc. Therefore, it is no wonder that traditional Komiža cuisine is founded precisely on these marine delicacies and quality local wines.
The town is full of pebbly beaches, with drinking water sources (Gusarica, Nova Posta, Velo žalo...) and a number of sandy ones. For lovers of active holidays, Komiža really has something to offer, diving, parachute flying, riding, or a trip to the nearby islands - Palagruža, Diomedovo island, or Biševo with the beautiful cave of Modra špilja.
