Stari Grad is a small town on the northern side of the island of Hvar in Dalmatia, Croatia.
Stari Grad (The Old Town) is located at the end of a four nautical mile-long bay on the northern side of the island of Hvar. The fields used to provide sustenance and the bay provided protection. Today, both the fields and the bay add an attractive quality to the old heart of the island, in the which the modern vacation sights have become interwined with the antiquities of the town of the island.
It used to be trade and naval center, and up to not long ago, the biggest settlement on the island. It has wine-celar with modern equipment, hotels and swimming beach. Smaller beaches are located in the coves inside the bay, and the underwater fishing is possible along the northern coast of the bay. The hunting-ground for rabbits and pheasants is nearby, on the peninsula Kabal.
