Explore Šćedro Island and find The Oldest Olive Tree On The Island
Šćedro sits along the southern part of Hvar Island, a smaller island that is a protected nature park. Spend the day here dipping your toes in the waters of the many coves of Šćedro. Although you won’t find it teaming with people, you won’t be the only one either. During the day, many boats take anchorage here to explore its beautiful bays. Explore further a foot, up, up, up the hill. There you will discover the abandoned stone village of Nastane. During the summer season, boat tours take daily trips to Šćedro. If you’re looking to get away from the busy town, an excursion to this quiet island is one of the best things to do on Hvar Island.
Placed under heritage protection in 1964, the oldest olive tree on Hvar is almost unknown outside the eastern village of Zastrazisce, which it neighbors. Experts have put it at 2,500 years old, which – if true – would make it one of the ten oldest olive trees in the world. See if you can find it.
