We walked from Starigrad to the centre of the world heritage, the omphalos. Here you can rest in the shade and have some water. The plains have been farmed for about 2.300 years according to the system instituted by Greek settlers. The crops are much the same, mainly olives and grapes. We had a great time on this ca 4 km walk.

We arrived in Stari Grad at 10:15 AM ($24 RT ferry from Split) and taxied ($13) 3.3 km east to the 1st C Kupinovik Roman Villa ruins. After seeing the stone olive press pillars and the carved lintel of a municipal councilor, we walked 1 km north on a dirt lane through the 2008 Stari Grad Plain noting the stone walled plots of groves with ripe olives, vineyards with unpicked red grapes and rows of lavender mounds. A farmer stopped and waved us over, gave us bunches of large red and white grapes, smiled and drove off.
At the Komon Path sign (3rd C burial monument), we turned west for 2 km to Stari Grad where we read the detailed signboards explaining the Greek land divisions into 180 m x 900 m plots to create a cultivated Mediterranean landscape of olives, grapevine, lentils and citrus fruit that has been feeding the island of Hvar for the last 2400 years.

We walked from Stari Grad to Vrboska through the plain, about an hour and a half each way and definitely worth it. Pure Mediterranean vibes with olive trees, grape vines, pomegranate and fennel everywhere .
The stone walls are very impressive as are the occasional grotto or huge piles of limestone rocks, it must have taken them ages to pick all the stone out of the ground but I suppose the Greeks used slaves so they had plenty of help.
100% visit this place if you are on Hvar, you will not be disappointed.

My friend and I rented bikes for a half a day and rode through the plain to the small town on the other side of the island. Historically interesting as this is supposed to be the oldest continuously cultivated region in the world. The old stone walls still defined the plots of olive trees and vineyards. Other than tourism, this is how the people of Stari Grad support themselves. The ride was easy as the road is flat, but there is a lengthy unpaved section. Fortunately it was not hot and the ride was pleasant but bring water. Glad we did this. Stari Grad was pretty quite as the season was over for the town and even the museums were closed.

In 35 degree heat in August, this was a fairly intense but incredibly beautiful ride. We hired bikes from Rent a Bike / Scooter in Stari Grad and we rode to Vrboska which is a settlement founded in the 15th century on the north coast of the island. We rode past vineyards, olive groves and ancient Greek ruins. The ride was mainly on quiet tracks which avoided cars on fast roads.
This was an unforgettable albeit fairly short ride. We only didn’t ride to Jelsa because of the heat.

A lovely day cycling from Stari Grad to Vrboska. A UNESCO world heritage site with some of the oldest continuously cultivated land in the World. Beautiful and virtually flat.
Rented the bikes from Hvar unlimited in Stari Grad (70 kuna pp) who helpfully delivered a replacement bike over lunch when the first had a puncture.

When I told the host at the guesthouse that I am walking to cape Jabal he was very surprised - perhaps because of the distance. But he didn't have any information, not sure if he actually was there himself..! These places are so underrated and poorly maintained. Oh, of course - nobody owns it so they can't charge the tourists money :-)
Kabal is an outpost overlooking the chanel between the islands of Brac and Hvar, and there are strategically placed tunnels which were presumably used especially during war times. A very eerie place to go through, I didn't have a torch, so perhaps bring one if you're going all the way there. Views out of the observation posts are spectacular, as are many views from the ridge as you're getting there. It is a fair distance so I would have been better with a bike ;-)
There is a rocky beach at the end of the road, you need to walk down through the bushes. If you decide to take a dip, as I did, make sure you look out for sea urchins, you don't want to step on one! In May the water wasn't quite that warm but it was good reward for a long walk...
