Jelsa (6)

Arguably the best location on Hvar for a family holiday, with its child-friendly square, direct mainland connection and range of activities, the beaches near Jelsa are gems.

If you can't wait to jump in, as some can't, there is a tiny beach at the end of the waterfront, but for those with a little patience, the beaches at Mina, Grebisce and Zencisce are all very popular.

Walk around the harbour past Hotel Fontana and soon you are in Vitarnja territory, one of the most popular places for local holiday homes. And with good reason, given the view, beaches and prolonged sunshine.

Alternatively, walk on a little further towards Vrboska and discover some of the prettiest coves on Hvar.
