Jelsa

Jelsa is a pretty town 3km from Vrboska and one of the most popular places for people to visit from Vrboska. There is a very pleasant coastal walk between the two towns where you can stop off for a swim in one of the many stunning coves. Jelsa is also a possible entry point when arriving on Hvar, with a daily catamaran arriving from Split at ...

The village was entirely abandoned by its inhabitants several decades ago, as they relocated to nearby Milna on the coast. It is a peaceful place to walk around and there is an excellent restaurant ...
