Vrboska has a new website. The tourist office has recently launched a completely redesigned site that will tell you about this lovely little place, and what’s to see and do during your visit. The content isn’t quite there yet, but it’s a good start and has the advantage of being in English. It already has the basics – whereabouts on the island, how to get here, the current weather (hot and sunny), places to stay, local eateries, and what to see.
Talking of what to see, it seems amazing to me how many tour groups appear in Vrboska in the late morning when not so much is open! They arrive on excursion boats, on bicycles (great way to see the island, that!), or in small minibuses and they fan out from the riva to find the hotspots. The most obvious of which is the unusual fortified church of St Mary. Which, naturally, is closed at that time, so they can’t pay their money and climb to the roof for that beautiful view. Still, at least the lovely harbour and the bridges are always available to everyone, though I have to say Vrboska is best seen in the light of early morning, and later in the afternoon.
When you do arrive in Vrboska, head over to the Tourist office, right next to Konoba Lem, where Miranda will tell you the lastest happenings, not only in Vrboska, but in other parts of Hvar, too.
