Until 1989 Vis, the Croatian island farthest from the coast, was a military base. After the last sub pulled out the island was quickly colonised by the boat set looking for fresh territory to explore. As well as the boating set the foodie set have also come to love Vis: around 20% of its land is laid out with vineyards and there's very healthy olive and fish markets as well. Foodies hang out in the local 'konobes', which are taverns, and chow down on fresh sardines, mackerel and anchovies, done in a variety of local styles, paired with one of the local organic wines (the white is called Vugava and the red Mali Plavac), or Rogacica, which is the local liqueur made from the island's wild and prevalent carob.

After you're fully sated spend some time going over the ancient Roman and Greek ruins.
