Komiža, the most beautiful fishing village in Dalmatia, nestles in the NE corner of Komiža Bay, beneath Muster and almost 600 m high Hum, with slightly smaller Sveti Bjaž. Komiža Bay is beautiful, but can be harsh. It is exposed to waves and winds blowing from the southwest and west, so when it is windy, the only place to find shelter is in the part of the harbour protected by the 200-metre breakwater. The head of the seawall is 2 m high and provides adequate shelter for fishing boats and yachts moored there. The only objects protruding behind the breakwater are the masts and superstructures of tall, open-sea trawlers and seiners. There are around 30 berths on the pier closer to the waterfront, and they are equipped with moorings and water and electricity connections. If you moor on the pier you should be completely safe. If there is no room there, the locals might let you moor sideways onto a trawler or seiner. You should be quite safe on the breakwater, except of course during strong SW winds in winter. The depth along the breakwater is adequate – from 6 m at its head to 2 m at the beginning of the waterfront. The breakwater is quite high, so it can be rather a problem docking a smaller boat without a gangway, especially during low tide. There are 50 buoys anchored in the area sheltered by the breakwater, intended for those who do not manage to find room on the breakwater. Keep in mind that a strong jugo or lebić creates waves there, making it less comfortable to be tied to the buoys in those conditions. In any case, whether you are moored on the waterfront or tied to one of the buoys, you will enjoy the unique atmosphere of this fishing village and its lively waterfront. Be sure to visit the exquisite fishing museum located inside the fort and sample the fish in one of the local restaurants. You can take a dinghy and head to one of the small beaches scattered throughout the bay, and once you are in Komiža, do not miss a visit to neighbouring Biševo and its famous Blue Cave (Modra Špilja).
