There are 15 major sites worth visiting in diving, especially in the unfrequented channel separating the island of Brac to Hvar, but also around the islands of Vis and Solta. Stine Babice with its Roman mosaics, the wreck of the early 19th Tatinja with coins and pottery, Lucica cave whose entrance is 3 m and depth 30 m.
