Hvar Town, Stari Grad or Bol

Hi All

We are trying to choose between these 3 places for a 1 week hol end July. We probably won't have transport so will be relying on public transport/taxis to get around. We are middle aged, enjoy swimming, beaches, walking, going out, eating, drinking, but are a bit past clubbing & fear Hvar may be crowded, glitzy & v young. there are still a few nicde air bnbs avaialble there though. Please advise which of these 3 towns would be best. Many thanks

Last August/September 4 of us spent a few nights in Hvar and loved it. We are in your age group, and it was part of a trip that included Trogir, Split, Hvar, and Dubrovnik. We stayed a little outside of downtown (between Hula Hula and Falko Beach Bar) and it was not very crowded out there. One day, we rented a VW convertible and drove Stari Grad and farther east on the island. It was much quieter out there, and seemed very nice. Our location was within walking distance of the harbor area via either a beach front walk, or through town streets.

I think I would choose Bol, it looks really pretty. So does Hvar Town and Stari Grad but Hvar Town will be party hard with the yachties, and it's also very expensive. If you want to do a day trip you could go to Makarska using the Krilo catamaran in the AM, or there are likely tourist boats that will go to Hvar Town.

How about Jelsa on Hvar?
