Although there is much to do in Hvar town, there are many amazing day trips that can be taken from town! We highly recommend you rent a car or a scooter, which you can book through us at reception, and make your way to the two beautiful caves Hvar boasts. These caves are not to be confused with the Blue and Green caves, which are sea caves. This is the perfect day trip for you if you would like to escape the sun, get off the beaten path and see something very unusual. It is also a good trip for a cloudy day! The caves suitable for a history buff, as the earliest remnants of civilization on Hvar have been found there; painted ceramics were found in these caves that date all the way back to 3500-2500 B.C.!

Humac is a 45-minute drive from Hvar town and a 15-minute drive from Jelsa. When you get to Humac, make your way to the tavern Konoba Humac; tours to the cave from there are offered during the summer on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9AM. This cave consists of two chambers that are surrounded by halls and smaller rooms; plentiful stalactites and stalagmites line the cave.
