Pretty much the only tourist attraction anyone mentions for this town is the Vela Spilje cave, which is located high above the city on a hillside. If you decide to go there, DRIVE, like we did. We followed the signs from the center of town, which were highly misleading--while they advertised the distance as an easily walkable 1 km or so, it was actually much farther. The drive can be a little harrowing, as it is up a steep cliffside road that gradually loses a lot of its width and paving, but it's a lot better than walking.
