Don't concentrate just on Hvar town. A good idea is also to visit the smaller towns – like Jelsa. It is a lovely, charming little seaside village. Small houses with red roofs sit around the harbor. At the main square you will find cafes and restaurants. Stroll around in the little alleys and explore the Church of the Assumption which is part of the fortress from the 14th
century, which protected the town. Don’t miss St. Ivan’s Square with its tiny balconies and the little octagonal church. Through the old part of town you follow up the Radic hill to a church from the 16th
century (Our Lady of Health). From up here you have a great view. Don’t miss it.
Near the harbor masters office there is a lovely Bar and restaurant and in front of it are moorings. They also have water and electricity there.
You can rent bicycles there and explore the hills around.
During our sailing trip on “Seven Spirit” we stopped in Jelsa and we found the konoba (restaurant) Pelago, it is a fantastic location in a little courtyard and they have great food.
You can easily spend 2 days here in Jelsa and enjoy yourself.
