Vela Garska is a natural bay on the south side of the west end of Hvar. Surrounded by pine slopes it’s a lovely spot, little reached by tourists other than those afloat.
There’s an underwater cave which makes it a popular diving spot. There’s a restaurant at the west end of the bay and there are mooring lines laid there. If you eat at the restaurant they will refund you for the mooring fees. However, it’s a fairly expensive eatery.
There’s no other development there. It’s well sheltered though there can be some wash from the super-yachts heading in to Hvar.
It’s a great place to chill out but if your wallet is feeling sensitive, it’s an ideal spot for a meal on board.
