In 2017 the cast of “Mamma Mia Here We Go Again” invaded the remote island of Vis. For six weeks the island became a film set the locals were very welcoming and were amazed as not much really happens on the island. Vis is a very authentic island it served as a military base in its history. Many tourists enjoy the islands untouched beauty and its peace and quiet. Despite of its remoteness the island has allot to offer, like the landmark Stiniva Beach on the south coast and the famous Blue Cave located on a nearby island called Veliki Budikovac.
