"We grab an ice cream and stroll to the beach. Hidden among the pine stands on the bay’s eastern rim, Grandovac beach is an archetypal stretch of the Vis seashore — a crescent of polished white pebbles overhung by pine trees thrumming with cicada song. On an overlooking embankment, a discreet bar purveys cold beer and soporific tunes. The water, this far from the mainland, is cool and clean."
