Only a few kilometres after the bay of Dubovica is Zaraće. Following the new road from Stari Grad to Hvar town you have to turn left where a steep narrow road leads to the sea. I was quite scared when I saw how steep and narrow was the street. It was impossible to meet with another car coming from the opposite direction. For this reason they made a few places where the road is wider and cars can meet. But it went quite well and I soon got used to it.

At the end of the road, on the left, is a parking which actually belongs to the restaurant, but it was no problem to leave the car there. This is certainly the most romantic place for the restaurant where tables are placed on the top of the cliff, with the view of an amazing sunset over the sea of Hvar. It offers genuine old-style cooking and some of the best wines from the island, in a silent ambience surrounded by the sea. Reservations must be made in advance. Here you find a long pebble beach, the main beach of Zaraće.

But there is another beach in Zaraće, one of our favourites. It's only a short walk to the right from where we left the car, and at the end are stone stairs down to the beach. The lovely little bay with only one house (I wished we stayed there) has a huge rock on one side, offering a nice view of the bay.
