Information about Jelsa

The port of Jelsa lies on the northern side of the island of Hvar off the Dalmatian coast. As almost everywhere on the Croatian Adriatic coast, there are several islands of different sizes in front of the mainland. Boat tourists and bathing tourists appreciate Jelsa especially because of its picturesque location and the southern climate with warm and dry summers. Depending on the weather, from Jelsa you can see the neighbouring island of Brac or the mainland. The best way to reach the neighbouring towns on Hvar is by local bus, and to explore the surrounding islands you can rent your own boat. Jelsa and the surrounding area offer plenty of opportunities to do this. To get from the mainland to the island and back again, you can use the catamaran that shuttle daily between Split and Jelsa. If you book an apartment in Jelsa today in order to spend your holiday here, you will be part of a centuries-old, even millennia-old tradition. Several ruins of ancient country villas testify to this. These were already used as holiday homes back then and prove that Jelsa has always been visited by people who wanted to relax and unwind here. During the 14th century Jelsa was first mentioned as a city and developed into one of the most important centres of shipbuilding in the region. Today tourism is the most important economic activity, but also viticulture, olive growing and fishing have traditionally played an important role in Jelsa and Hvar. You can also experience the typical flair of this harbour town very directly in your private holiday apartment in Jelsa.
