Enjoy a perfect day in Hvar

Hvar is the most famous of all the Croatian islands. It is best known for its turquoise waters, lavender fields, 2.800 hours of sunshine a year, wild nightlife, and as a summer refuge for the rich and famous.  After hearing of so many celebrities visiting the island, you might imagine it all glitz and glamor, but it’s far from the truth.  The number one reason to visit the island is actually its stunning natural beauty.

The most popular town on the island, Hvar, is simply gorgeous and a must-see on your trip here. Dominated by a large town square that features an Arsenal building, St. Stephen Church, and a small port, the old town is encircled by protective walls from the land side, and overlooked by a 16th-century Spanish Fort. Fortica offers lovely views over the town, the sea, and the Paklinski Islands. For even better views  hike or drive up to Napoljun fortress atop of the Saint Nicolas hill.  Hvar Town also has an infamous reputation for offering a restless, fun, crowded, and wild nightlife.

Stari Grad is the oldest settlement on island Hvar. It’s located along the long, deep bay with the old town at its end. The old town consists of traditional stone houses, cobblestone streets, and numerous churches.

Located in the center of the island Hvar’s northern shores, Jelsa has lovely beaches, a good choice of private accommodation, and a variety of sports facilities, restaurants, and bars. If you are looking for more affordable accommodations and a quieter vibe, Jelsa is a good choice.

An archipelago of twenty-something islands, Pakleni islands are a true wonder of nature and inevitable stop when in Hvar. The islands are gorgeous, surrounded by turquoise waters, and full of hidden beaches, calm bays, and a few restaurants and bars here and there – a perfect spot to spend a day swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or just chilling by the sea. The most popular places include Palmižana, located on St. Clement Island, Jerolim Island with its nude beaches, and Marinkovac with famed Carpe Diem Beach Club.
