Stiniva lies on the south side of Vis. It is one of the hottest beaches in Croatia.
In 2016 it was named the best beach in Europe by European Best Destinations, a Brussels-based organization that promotes culture and tourism.
Set in a natural limestone arena, sheer tufted walls of rock all but encircle the smooth, sunken, white pebble floor, with the only break at the 16-foot wide cliff gate, which opens the beach to the sea. There are always plenty people enyoing on that beach, swimming or sunbathing.
