Beach of the Week: 14. Vitarnja in Jelsa
One of the prettiest walks on Hvar is the coastal road from Jelsa to Vrboska, which takes about 35 minutes. Walking through the pine trees along several picturesque coves is a great way to escape the stress of Hvar living (yes I know there is no stress here...) - in winter or in summer. It was a walk I used to do daily when I first came, taking my morning coffee in Vrboska each day.
Leaving Jelsa one comes to the town's most popular suburb for holiday homes - Vitarnja. A place of spectacular beauty, natural goodness and tranquility, but just a short stroll from downtown Jelsa.
Holiday homes rarely come up for sale in the area, and it is a firm favourite for locals and tourists alike, who enjoy the great selection of beaches, starting at Hotel Fontana, and continuing on towards Vrboska.
