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...

It was quite a hike down to the beach area but worth the time. May be hard for anyone with disabilities since it is steep terrain. Restaurant down on the beach served excellent food, water was so clear, an enjoyable experience.

I didn´t feel like getting to Hvar Town because i stayed at an extremely comfortable guesthouse (Villa Zaca), the beaches were beautiful and there was peace and good food. It´s a fantastic small town, with some restaurants, not as crowded or glamorous like the rest of the island.

A beautiful beach on the island of Hvar. There are few people and beautiful views of the surroundings. I got here is an experience to drive an historic handcrafted tunnel.

Red rocks, pristine waters, beautiful town, scenic drive through the hills to get in and out of Zavala. Would definitely come back.

This somehow reminds me of the small fishing village named Clifton on the Oregon coast where in the early days the fishermen migrated from Croatia. Simple practical and A great place to visit.

We loved the quiet, picturesque place. It has great beaches, it is pretty good snorcheling there, you can see all kind of different little fish when you snorchel along the cliffs. On the left side of the harbour is a beach for nudist only. One the right side there are many beaches and possibilities to go in the water, swim... More

Kind of pretty, but the title says it all...having seen other parts of Hvar, I just wouldn't bother.

My husband and I LOVED it here. The rustic walk along the coast, the little hidden pebble beaches. We found a little cove just big enough for the two of us and it was heaven. We found a cute little place to eat overlooking the sea, and had the most incredible day here. My all time favorite place in Hvar.
