You are sailing for about two hours from Split to the island Hvar, by ferry boat, and than driving by local roads towards southern side of the island. As the roads are getting more and more narrow and stiffer, you are getting closer to our final destination – Sveta Nedilja
. It is a small village on southern stiff cliffs of the island Hvar
, looking towards the sun all year long.
The village lies under Sveti Nikola, the highest peak on Hvar, 626 meters above sea level. Below the peak, there is a cave which was inhabited in Neolithic and in the Middle ages, it was a site for Augustinian monastery. Monastery existed from 15th century to 1787., but residents of Sveta Nedilja did use it for their religion practice until the last century when the church in the village was built.
The place is beautiful and extraordinary. Everything there seems to sloping to the Adriatic
, houses and fields around them. But, village men are not oriented to the sea as they are to the land. They mostly live from the incomes of vine production; Sveta Nedilja is famous for good red wine Plavac Mali, which is born in blue grains of the grape, cherished by the sun rays in the vineyards on the slopes around.
Beautiful beaches are another thing Sv. Nedilja is known of. The pebble beach ‘ručice’ is a place where people from all over Hvar come to enjoy the benefits of Mediterranean climate, and the little coves and bays around are intimate getaways for those who like peace and silence.
Sveta Nedilja is not tourist center, but one can find accommodation
in cozy and pretty private apartments and rooms
. There is a beach with healing mud
near, spring with mineral water in the village and abundance of unpolluted sea and nature for summer joys and water sports. Those in favor of active vacation and rusher places can take a trip to 12 kilometers distanced Hvar, the town with rich cultural heritage and vivid nigh life.
