Viganj is a village which stretches from the side of Mount Illja down to the sea and has a long seafaring history – Many of the old stone houses you see are being restored to their former glory and are protected by UNESCO along with Dubrovnik as a world heritage site. It is a beautiful village, full of luscious plants and flowers brought back by past sailors of the village from their travels. There are also many domestic restaurants here which are always particularly good (a great place to find local & organic produce). Viganj is also the place to go if you want to wind or kite-surf. The Croatian championships are held here every July as the conditions are perfect. Everyday at about 3pm, a maestral blows down the channel between Korcula and the peninsula and creates a welcome breeze.
