The central part is fertile field while the rest of the island is covered with macchia or rocks. On the north of the island there is a forest of pine. The settlements on the island are: Potok, Polje, Nevaja, Mezuporat and Salbunara).

         There are a few caves on the island, out of which Modra Spilja (the Blue Cave) is the most famous. Around noon, when the sea is calm, sunbeams that penetrate through the submarine opening in the Blue Cave, reflect from the white bottom floor and colour the cave in blue and objects in the water in silver. The cave is accessible since 1884, and approach is possible only by boat. The coastal sea belt is rich fishing area. The island of Bisevo is famous excursion site: one-day excursions are organised from Komiza and Vis, but also from other islands in vicinity. First you visit the Blue Cave, then comes the swimming in one of the coves, and it is all followed by the obligatory fish lunch.

         There are few mostly uninhabited small islands in the vicinity: Jabuka, Svetac, Palagruza. On the some of them there is only a light-house and some are used only for sheep pasture or fishing.
