Stari Grad (ancient Pharos) is a town and a harbour at the end of the four nautical mile long bay on the northern side of the island of Hvar. The town is surrounded with vineyards, olive-groves and pine tree forest. Chief occupations include farming, viniculture, olive growing, fruit growing, grapes processing, fishing and tourism. Stari Grad is a modern tourist centre. A variety of accommodation facilities (hotels, apartments, rooms, camps and bungalows), domestic specialities offered in the restaurants and wine cellars (especially seafood and famous Croatian wines) and sports and recreational opportunities (tennis, basketball, football and boccia including water sports surfing and diving) attract many visitors. The summer months offer numerous cultural and sports events: The Summer of Stari Grad, concerts, recitals and shows. Stari Grad hosts the International Summer Music School in July and August. The first Sunday in September attracts many swimmers on the Faros Marathon, international Croatia cup in long-distance swimming. The surrounding sea is well-known for its rich fish world, and the beaches are rocky, concrete and pebble. Smaller beaches are located in the coves inside the bay, and the underwater fishing is possible along the northern coast of the bay.
