Hike or ride through Stari Grad Plain, a World Heritage-listed lanscape virtually unchanged since the original agricultural infrastructure was put in place by the Greeks in 4th century BCE. You can spot remnants of this distant past everywhere, not only in the vineyards and olive fields, but also in the rustic stone walls that once divided plots of arable land. You can cycle around the area on paved biking tracks, or hike through the countryside to find secluded spots tailor-made for a private picnic.

  • This is UNESCO World heritage protected site as one of the rare examples of intact agricultural landscape made by Greek colonists when they took this beautiful bay from local population. I would like more investment but even like this is it perfect place for bike or walking tour. You can reach it from Stari Grad and it stretches almost to neighboring beautiful small towns of Jelsa and Vrboska. In spring you can find nice asparagus here. And try to avoid high summer as it can be really hot here if you are not near sea.
  • Nice beach
  • Because the field is intertwined with history, agriculture and culture. It was recognized by UNESCO

  • It is very interesting to observe these plains worked since Greco times. There are signs explaining, it is UNESCO heritage. The access road is not good, but it is travelable by bike or motorcycle even low displacement (50cc). I recommend it as a cultural activity and you can take good pictures.
