We went on a vacation in June 2019. We had the best experienced vacation ever. Not crowded. Peaceful. We had first row to sea accomodation. Beautiful sunrises, on and off swimming, joyful nights with lot of crickets sounds. Zavala is best place if you want peace, beautiful pebble beach, clear sea and 100% enjoying nature.

I arrived on Saturday, it is a long way from any other place. Zavala is a small, small place and has lovely stones / rocky beaches with some also nudist beaches, you do need to get to those by boat I think. Been on my own I found this too remote and awfully quiet. There is one shop (only opens 10 to 11 and then opens again between 16-00 -17-00). The shop has very limited supply of anything...just flip-flops sun screen and some little trinkets for holiday presents. If remote's your thing then you'll enjoy here, I guess. The biggest problem if you haven't a car, it's 50mins on a bus from Hvar, and then another 20 mins by taxi....by very rocky old roads twisting and whining along the mountain side.... taxi from Jelsa is 150 kunas..about €20 / 25... I have no plans to ever go here again, not for me. Jelsa has more going on....& slightly less hassle to get too.

Though we didn't end up going to Zavala because of a shortage of time, the trip through the Zavala tunnel itself is most definitely an interesting one-of-a-kind experience to add to your Hvar adventures. The tunnel was crudely drilled during the socialist era in the early 60's as a means of delivering water and electricity to the less populated half of the island, and was never meant for passenger travel. However, because the only alternative means of passage is a slow route over the mountains on a road suitable only for four wheel drive vehicles, it began to be used by locals. Apparently it is still not a "legal" road. The tunnel is 1.4km long and only one lane, with walls so rugged it definitely feels more like a cave than a tunnel. There are no lights inside so it is unusually dark and spooky inside, and water regularly seeps through the rock. Eventually, a traffic light was installed at each end, as previously cars would have to back up (or edge over at a widened space in the middle) if encountering traffic in the opposite direction. Driving through the tunnel was definitely another memorable experience on Hvar.

Nice pebble beaches in a wonderful natural bay, which gives protection from waves, clean water with lot of uderwater live, so you can swim with your children and try to train them using googles and snorkel for the first time. Weakness is one local restaurant Grgo - the owners get the beach as their private property, especially if you request their service. But you can ignore them, the experience of swimming is fantastic.
