“Once you get over the drive through the mountain, it is a gorgeous beach.”

The road in is quite interesting. The first time I almost started to drive into the tunnel when another driver explained you wait for the light to turn. Sure enough, several vehicles came from the opposite direction about 10 minutes after we were waiting. The light went green and we drove through a very narrow but well built tunnel. We then made the turn down to the water and took a steep switchback drive down to a gorgeous beach. Our Hotel was one turn back (about 100 meters from water) The path along the water was absolutely gorgeous. Just one epic view after another. Blue water and so clear - you could see easily 6-7 meters down.

Ridiculously, stupidly, stunningly, heartstoppingly amazing beach! The water is so clear and sparkly and blue!

One of THE most stunning beaches I've ever been to!

Highly, highly, highly recommend!

There are few people here and beautiful views - it has a fishing village vibe to it. we got here by car but the road on the way here is very narrow and you have to go through a hair-raising handcrafted tunnel. but the views on the other side are stunning and worth the effort in my opinion

What a lovely spot this is! I was so glad we had chosen to stay here for 5 nights and not in one of the towns on Hvar which, though very attractive, don't have the lovely rural, peaceful feeling of a small settlement like this below the mountain slopes.Vineyards, a Konoba, a small shop, lots of villas with apartments, tiny pebble beaches, a coastal path and very unspoilt.It is mostly quite modern but the houses are nice with lovely gardens and you look across to islands.The sunsets and sunrises are stunning.
A very interesting road tunnel to access it also! It feels miles away from everything else yet by car is only 15 mins or so from Jelsa. Hvar Town is about 50 mins -1 hour away.
