The southern Croatian island of Vis was listed among the top 10 little-known dream islands by Sherman's Travel Editorial Staff, Yahoo Travel reported earlier this week.
"With its medieval villages, deserted beaches, ancient ruins, rambling olive groves, and the best vineyards in Dalmatia, Vis is poised to become the next "it spot" for sun and fun on the Adriatic," it was stated in the description of the Croatian island.
"The winding streets of the two main towns - Vis and Komiza - are brimming with restaurants serving delicious seafood and Italian-style fare, while miles of sandy beaches, pebbly enclaves, and glittering shores attract sunbathers (Srebrna, a beautiful beach covered in large flat stones that appear silver in the sun, is one of the most beautiful). At just 2 hours by ferry from Split, Vis offers only three modest hotels, but visitors can also opt to rent apartments and villas."
Other little-known dream islands included in the list were: Anegada (British Virgin Islands), Cat Ba Island (Vietnam), Fakarava (French Polynesia), Iles de la Madeleine (Quebec), Ischia (Italy), Lamu (Kenya), Monhegan Island (Maine), Terre-de-Haut (Guadeloupe) and Yap (Micronesia).
