Island Hvar and especially Hvar town is one of the most popular destinations in the Adriatic. During the season (May to September) it can be very busy, especially during August when large numbers of Italians visit.
Hvar was relatively cheap, without an extensive tourist infrastructure, and it attracted a lot of young people. However, this is changing as large five star hotels are being built and the standard of living in Croatia is rising.
Jelsa is an important tourist centre which has a rich tradition in tourism (the oldest hotel Jadran was built in 1911). Jelsa has various accommodation facilities (hotels, apartments, campsites, private rooms…), sports and recreational opportunities (football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, miniature golf), gastronomic offer (fresh sea-food and famous wines) and excursions (to Bol on the island of Brac).
Guests can rent motorboats, speedboats, bicycles, motorcycles or cars.
Stari Grad (eng. "old town") is historical heart of the island of Hvar. The town is situated in a landscape where the blue of the deep bay touches the green of the wide an famous field of Pharos, with vineyards and olive-groves. The fields used to provide sustenance and the bay provided protection.
Today, both the fields and the bay add an attractive quality to the island, in which the modern vacation sights have become intertwined with the antiquities of the town and of the island.
