Vrbnica Cave - a wide, 20 m deep hall is located 100 m to the right of the entrance to the harbor. An endemic species of Kolombatić was found in the cave.
Silo also offers landscapes, magical views and history. Remains of a Roman villa - is an inscription that will take you to the remains of a Byzantine fortress, dating from the 6th century, with the help of similar markings.
