"Relaxing athmosphere" Jelsa by Noor1203

Jelsa Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 30 photos

Jelsa is situated in the middle of the north coast of the island of Hvar. It is an old town with a history dating back to ancient times.

I found there beautiful landscapes and wooded coves with rock and sand beaches. When i visited it in spring there have been nearly no tourists, so it was the perfect sweet place to relax...

Croatia is famous of having one of the clearest sea-water, and i can affirm that, its really beauteous.

In the evening locals meet in the sidewalk cafes to play guitar and sing. There are few places to go out by night, but those available are very enjoyable.

It was really cheap to take a meal or a drink in the restaurants and cafes.

Its also absolutely worth to rent for example a scooter, as i did, and drive through the mountains.. you have great views.. and the capital of the island, also named Hvar, is not far away and much more vivid than Jelsa.
