This might be the prettiest town that we saw in Croatia. Fascinating, ancient, multi storey buildings right on the waters edge.

We paid 70Kn "ecological tax" to anchor , which included garbage collection and 2 hours on the dock for water. The dock was so crowded that we ended up getting the water in jerry jugs with the dinghy.

Tailed moorings on the breakwater with electric. The dockman said dockage was 30Kn /meter.

Attractive small town, delightful harbour. We had a wonderful meal for two of rump steak and mussels, grilled vegetables, local wine, and coffee for 296Kn ($60)

Shops, restaurants, hotel.

Fishing Museum ,old castle worth a visit.

Customs and Immigration (Formalities)

The Customs and immigration kiosk is at the end of the pier where the ferry docks. You need to call them on the phone when you want to check in or out. They will come from their office in Vis.

Remember to tell them on the phone that you are in Komiza. I waited for hours after calling them to find out that they thought I was in Vis town.

We checked out of here for Vieste.

Fishing Museum (Museum)

The fishing museum is housed in an ancient fortress on the waters edge.

They have a full size half model of a classic sailing skiff, in the museum that must have been completely dismantled  to get through the original, tiny door, and reasembled inside the room.

The curator is very friendly and passionate about the displays in the museum.
