“Little paradise on the island of Vis”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I came on scooter from the town of Vis to the parking lot where the trail to the Stiniva beach began. I hiked down in 15 minutes and reached the beautiful, silent beach with clear water waiting to swim. The fisherman house on the beach was closed because it was begining of October.
Perfect place for tooke some pictures for remember.

“Not worth the dangerous hike.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

We hiked down the dangerous trail to reach this beautiful cove. We were rewarded with 10 minutes of swimming in the stunning, clear water before boatloads of people turned up.

The cove is quite small and the beach was overcrowded very quickly. Every tour company on the island takes groups here so don't expect a peaceful visit.

“Very steep hike but amazing little cove”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

The cove is amazing with crystal clear waters and a bar which was open to buy drinks and snacks. However, this is a serious hike up and down, we just about managed it in trainers but you really need hiking boots, don't attempt in sandals or flip flops. It takes about 30mins to get down and you are rewarded with an amazing view and lovely swim. Unfortunately for us about 20 mins after we arrived two boats full of tourists moored up for lunch on the pebble beach. Turns out this is not as secluded and secretive as we thought!

“Well worth the steep hike”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This rocky beach is one of a kind. The cove is beautiful and the water is super clear and clean. There is a small bar and restaurant although that was closed by the time we visited (mid September).

The hike down the steep path is intense, though, and takes about 20 minutes. Wear good shoes...I saw several people trying to navigate it in sandals and they were not having fun!

“Treacherous rocky access”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Srinivas cove is a magic place to visit. The little cove is a picture postcard experience but the access path from the road where you park your bike or car is more a goat track than a path. I do not recommend it for anyone that is not very agile and good footwear is essential .A swim at the little beach and a beer from the bar shack is a real travel experience. This cove would best be visited by boat
