Sućuraj is a small picturesque tourist and fishermen's town. Located on the East cape of the island of Hvar (central Dalmatia, Croatia), it is surrounded by the sea on three sides and is closest to the mainland. There are 357 inhabitants in the town living mostly from tourism, fishing and agriculture. The town evolved around a deep and narrow bay in which the port lies. The main parts of Sućuraj are named Gornja Banda (Upper Side) and Donja Banda (Lower Side). Gornja Banda is located on a slight slope north of the port and Donja Banda is located on the south side of the peninsula. The architecture is typical Dalmatian with stone houses and narrow streets. The place gets its charm from the combination of blue seas of the Hvar and Neretva channel as well as the view of the Biokovo Mountain, Pelješac peninsula and the islands of Brač and Korčula.

The town has an elementary school, a post office, infirmary with the heliport for emergencies, local Port authority office, souvenirs shops, grocery shops, restaurants, bars, a hairdresser salon, exchange office, ATM and tourist info office.
