SeaHelp travel guide: Jelsa, Hvar island
When making a stop at Jelsa harbour paying a visit to the old town is a must. There is a lot to discover around the Pjaca, the centre of the town with its roots reaching back to the Stone Age. Chapels, churches, Konobas, they all contribute to shaping the townscape and provide the friendly visitor with deep insights into the past and present living conditions. So it is good to know that many cafés and restaurants around are well-prepared for refreshing breaks in these history-charged surroundings.
Those who wish, may dive into Jelsa’s night life which features numerous clubs and bars. However, there are still better destinations to be found on the island. In any case, in Jelsa, the scent of rosemary and lavender is prevailing Caipirinha or Mojito. So it seems to make more sense here to relax and finish off an enjoyable day with a cultivated wine tasting.
And when it comes to distance: The surrounding beaches Mina, Grebisce, Vitarnja and Zencisca can easily be accessed on foot and offer lovely spots for every kind of taste.
