Viganj is small town in the Southwest part of the Peljesac peninsula, only few minutes drive form Orebic. It is secluded in its quiet and peaceful natural surroundings without too much traffic, discos and bars. Here you can really experience the atmosphere of a Mediterranean town while you stroll down the winding coastline, between beautiful beaches and houses built in authentic architecture and surrounded by gardens in full bloom.
Viganj is a well-known European wind surfing spot. Since it is situated in the middle of a narrow canal between Korcula and Peljesac and under the hill of St Elias, the wind tends to blow twice as fast as it usually does in the Adriatic. The usual speed of the afternoon Maestral is 5 and it reaches the speed of 8 Beauforts. Sometimes the brave surfers can try windsurfing when Jugo starts to blow, just before the storm. It is very strong and it lasts for the whole day so surfers should definitely try this.
