Uvala Stoncica est une belle baie abritée à l'extrémité E de Vis. La baie est étroite et une grande partie de celle-ci est de faible profondeur, avec une petite plage de sable à son extrémité W, où il y a plusieurs petites tavernes servant des repas simples.

On peut mouiller face aux restaurants ou dans l'une des deux criques à l'W, par moins de 10 m.
