Budikovac Island, view of the lagoon

Budikovac island and its Turquoise Lagoon

Another lagoon which we visit on our speedboat tour from Split, besides the Blue Lagoon of Drvenik and Krknjasi islands, is the lagoon of distant Budikovac island. Even though we like to call them “blue lagoons”, the color of the sea inside the Budikovac lagoon is closer to beautiful turquoise, constantly changing shades as the sun moves on the horizon above.

Budikovac island is situated on the SE side of the island Vis and its lagoon is formed by Budikovac island and two little islands called “small Budikovac” and “Sanak” located just outside the main beach of island Budikovac. Its crystal clear sea is the perfect stage for some underwater photography and selfies to share with your friends.

It is interesting to note that Budikovac is inhabited by only one person for majority of the year. This person owns a restaurant on the island with an animal farm and a vegetable garden making it a perfect spot for many boat owners to come and enjoy in this quiet and distant location.

The shallow and crystal clear sea is the perfect spot to jump from the boat and enjoy in swimming and snorkeling in this little paradise. This is the perfect spot to grab snorkeling mask we have on board and enjoy in the underwater scenery and different kinds of fish you can discover while snorkeling here.

We choose Budikovac lagoon as a stop on our speedboat tour from Split because it represents everything Dalmatia and Dalmatian people are about. Secluded distant beach in a natural paradise, untouched nature and clear blue sea describes the perfect vacation scenery to a majority of Croatian population. Budikovac island provides all of these and that is the main reason we decided to share its beauty with you.
