Prime location to base your Dalmatian coast vacation!
The village of Sveta Nedjelja lies 15 km east of Hvar town on the southern coast of the island and approximately 5 km south of the primary ferry port town of Stari Grad. The majestic Dineric Alps bisect the island horizontally therefore access to the village is not direct from Stari Grad; you must go east 8 km toward Jelsa and then go through the Pitve tunnel and then back 8 km to the village. In 2008, a road was cut from the mountainside to connect the village to the main Hvar town road to the west for direct access to Hvar town. The whole area is pristine and the water crystal clear. Vineyards surround the village and cover the steep slopes and the annual average of over 2700 hours of sunshine produce the highest quality Plavac mali, the signature award winning grape of the region.
