Description:

Vela Stiniva is one of the two super-crags of the Island. It features two main sectors – one for hard climbing and one for easy and beginner climbing.

 

Directions:

The climbing area is situated in a little cove called Vela Stiniva, with no more than a dozen houses and a nice beach. If you are coming from the direction of Starigrad/Hvar/Jelsa and other places on the west side of the island, just take the main road to Sućuraj. After about 15km from Jelsa, you will reach a hill-side village Zastražišće. In the village itself, turn left at the sign for “Vela Stiniva” and just follow the road to the sea.

If you are coming from Sućuraj or other places on the east side, or you are taking an express 30min ferry from Drvenik (near Makarska, on the mainland), just carry on towards Jelsa for 30km and the same sign appears on the right side. The roads on the east side of the island leave a lot to be desired so drive carefully.
