VELA GARSKA (43° 11'N; 16° 25'E), cove on the S coast of the westernmost part of Hvar, in the channel Pakleni kanal, about 1.6M west of the town of Hvar.
Approach: The mouth of the cave on the W entrance point is conspicuous.
Vessels entering the cove should keep closer to the E coast.
Mooring: The small bay indented with several inlets affords good shelter, especially from winds blowing from the NE and SE quadrants. The sirocco blows violently but raises only a moderate sea. Yachts can moor at the small pier (depth up to 2 m) in the W part of the bay. Four-point moor with bows facing seaward recommended.
Facilities: In the town of Hvar.
