On the west entrance of the Vis port is the forested islet Host, oblong shaped, 360 metres long and 120 metres wide. It is located 1200 metres from the centre of Vis. For guests who arrive on the islet with their cars, there is free public parking in the town Vis where they can also buy groceries and drinking water because the lighthouse has only a water tank with water for showering and washing dishes. The lighthouse on the islet was built in 1873, it consists of a small octagonal stone tower and one ground floor building with a total area of 76m². The spacious stone terrace that surrounds the lighthouse has a view of the sea and the Vis port and a special attraction is watching the sunrise and sunset. The lighthouse does not have a keeper which ensures the guests maximum privacy. The underwater of the north side of the islet hides an archaeological site, and the configuration of the bottom is also attractive for all types of underwater sports activities. The boat dock is on the west side, where a footpath leads through a pine forest to the lighthouse. A small beach with a pier is right under the lighthouse. Swimming is possible at both boat docks.

... that Host lighthouse got its name from a captain who conquered Napoleon's navy?


Both the lighthouse and its island were named after a captain who conquered the superior Napoleon's navy with his significantly smaller fleet in 1811. The name of this captain was William Host, due to his bravery and combating skills often referred to as Young Nelson. Although the lighthouse probably dates from the ancient times of Greek Issa, people of Vis decided to honor the captain and as a sign of their gratitude renamed both the islet and the lighthouse situated at the mere entrance to the Vis port .
