Along the south shore of the island of Hvar there is another small island of Šćedro. Protected as a nature park, in its untouched beauty, with many hidden coves, it provides an intimate experience to every visitor. Once you feel the charm of those quiet coves, sweet aromas of nature and glimmering sun on crystal clear water you would want to stay forever. Since the Ancient times Šćedro coves have been known as good places for anchorage and safe harbors. Quite possibly one of the most epic battles like the one between Pompeius and Caesar in 49 BC, might have happened here as numerous discoveries in the depths around Šćedro attest to. Long time ago because of the somewhat more humid climate than that on the island of Hvar, wheat was cultivated on Šćedro. On the hill there is an old abandoned village called Nastane, which will take you back to history with its picturesque stone houses.
