The final village in the central spine is Selca, which can be reached on the old road to Hvar Town. With most property owners coming from neighbouring Stari Grad, the village is almost abandoned, and Selca was only connected to mains water three years ago. Its spectacular views of the Stari Grad channel and Rudine Peninsula have made it a favourite for foreign buyers, however, and it offers a peaceful retreat from the coast with the opening of the new road to Hvar Town, while only being five minutes from the main ferry terminal.
The savage forest fires of 2003 burned much of the land near Selca, and the fire even reached the village itself, singeing a couple of ruins on the edge of the village. A short distance from Selca on the way to Hvar Town is a bicycle route off a sharp left turn; it is a rough route, but eventually leads to the peak of the island and wonderful panoramic views.
