The town of Jelsa has found its place in the middle of the island of Hvar, by the sea on the north side. It is surrounded by the highest island peaks; Nicholas on the west and Huma on the east. Just like the rest of the island, it has a beautiful rugged coastline with beautiful islets, bays and capes. Jelsa offers a diverse landscape - pine forests, vineyards, lavender fields, olive groves and crystal clear sea. There are also beautiful beaches. You can reach them on foot, by car or by boat. It is interesting that the only real sandy beach on the whole island is located only 2 km from Jelsa.
