“Zavala is a very cute, quiet place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

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 and snorchel. You can rent a boat there.
It is a pity but there are not public bathrooms or showers after swimming.

“There is nothing there...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

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

“The most romantic coastline!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

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.

“Very quiet village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2009

Zavala won't win any architectural awards, just a 100 or more houses stretching back up the hill from the rocky/pebbly beach. One pizzeria in the harbour, a couple of beach bars and a couple of small hotel restaurants and a small shop.
Great place to unwind and do nothing but swim. Snorkelling is OK, but not a huge amount to see. A day on Scedro is good (go round the headland - on your right as you approach - from where the boat taxi drops you, the little restaurant is better)
