Hvar, Luka Vrboska
Located on the northern shore of Hvar to the east of Stari Grad, Vrboska gives excellent access to the northern side of this historic island, with its Roman, Greek and Illyrian history as well as its Medieval architecture and its 19th century Lavender industry.
The town offers the chance to visit the northern shore of what is considered to be the most chic of the Dalmatian Islands. The towns of Vrboska, Jelsa (4 km to the east) and Stari Grad (10km to the west) have all the style and interest of the chic Hvar Town, but without any of the false glitz that has driven the costs of a visit there endlessly upwards.
The town of Vrboska is located at the end of a long east-west inlet and provides excellent all-round shelter (though surges of up to 2 metres have been recorded when the Jugo blows). It is often the case that boats from Jelsa have to seek shelter here when winds get up.
For those who do not want or need the services either of ACI Vrboska or the Vrboska Town Quay there is an anchorage in the bay on the north side Luka Vrboska just before the entrance to the town harbour. Anchor under the shelter of the north side of the bay in 6-10 metres with the quite tree lined beachside campsite/hotel facilities immediately in front of you on the shore.
Shelter: Good in all directions but during Bora take lines ashore
Depths: 6-10 metres
Bottom: Sand and weed
Hazards: None recorded
Shore Access: Via quay by the shoreside hotel or in the town
Fuel available between the Harbour and ACI Marina
Bank beside the Harbour Wall
Post Office beside the Harbour Wall
Shops including several supermarkets in the town
