Zavala

The south side of Hvar Island is special for several reasons, which you will quickly come to understand as you travel the road which takes you to Zavala.

As you go through the cave-like Pitve – Zavala tunnel, you will have the feeling you are travelling into another world. Your guide through the tunnel’s rough-hewn walls is the light at the other end. As you emerge from the darkness, there are wondrous sights for your eyes to feast on: the nearby islands, the vast expanse of sky and the endless sea are just part of the delights awaiting you on the south side of Hvar.
