Guide to Hvar

A perfect fusion of glitz, glamour and Adriatic charm

Another gem in Croatia’s sparkling crown, Hvar has emerged as a Mediterranean hotspot where people travel to just be near the SuperyachtSet.

Sitting pretty among the southern Dalmatian Islands, Hvar has a charming ambience, which welcomes the discerning traveller with open arms. The capital, Hvar Town, is one of the Adriatic’s best preserved towns and manages to perfectly balance modern glamour with its ornamental style of architecture seen among stunning Gothic palaces and traffic-free marble streets. It makes the perfect addition to any East Mediterranean yacht charter

Hvar is known as Croatia’s premier party town and for good reason although, thanks to its well-heeled visitors, this hasn’t compromised its air of unwavering elegance. A perfect day in Hvar can start with a coffee in the harbour while watching the town come to life, followed by a wander around the food market and delicatessens. If you’re feeling brave you can hire a scooter and whizz around the winding streets, and up to Hvar’s hilly interior, past olive groves, lavender fields and ancient stone walls.

An evening can then be spent either enjoying an dinner alfresco on your luxury charter yacht or at one of the many great restaurants on offer. But this time of day is when Hvar really comes into its own. Whether you’re relaxing with sundowners at the Hula Hula Bar, rubbing shoulders with celebrities on the rooftop of the Adriana Hotel or dancing under the trees at Copacobana Beach, you can party the night away in ultimate style.

After a night of revelry, it’s well-worth visiting one of Hvar’s quieter, beautifully unhurried villages such as the well-known Stari Grad, as well as Jelsa and Vrboska. For some beach relaxation with incredible scenery you can’t beat the nearby Pakleni Islands. Here you’ll find a myriad of deserted beaches and lagoons lapped by crystal-clear waters and a few selected naturist beaches for anyone that likes to really be at one with nature.
