The Adriatic coast offers sunshine in abundance. It is one of the sunniest areas in the Mediterranean, with an average of 2600 hours of sunshine annually. The thick pine forests and constant breeze provide shade and refreshment from the blazing heat, while numerous bays and smooth rocks are exceptionally well-suited for swimming and sunbathing.
A sign of good, stable weather is a clear sky with a few clouds here and there. If the sun before setting is a purplish color with a clear sky under a thick, dark cloud, it is a sign that the weather will get better. An indication of bad weather is a dull and fuzzy sunset with a cluster of clouds. A rainbow made by breaking up and reflection of sun rays in droplets of water is a sign of bad weather with rain, but also better weather after the rain. A pleasant, sunny day perfect for sailing is usually announced by the rainbow in the western part of the sky in the afternoons and evenings.
If you find yourself near the island of Vis on a sunny day, you must visit the Blue and Green Caves. It is a phenomena of the Adriatic Sea which exists thanks to a play of light. Sun rays squeezed through the cave's opening, formed by sea waves, create a magical and unique azure and emerald radiant glow.
