Hvar Town is glitz and glamouris lively nightlife Long, lean Hvar is vaguely shaped like the profile of a holidaymaker reclining on a sun lounger, which is altogether appropriate for the sunniest spot in the country (2724 sunny hours each year) and its most luxurious beach destination.
Hvar Town, the island’s capital, offers swanky hotels, elegant restaurants and a general sense that, if you care about seeing and being seen, this is the place to be. Rubbing shoulders with the posh yachties are hundreds of young partygoers, dancing on tables at the town’s legendary beach bars. The northern coastal towns of Stari Grad and Jelsa are far more subdued and low-key.
Hvar’s interior hides abandoned ancient hamlets, craggy peaks, vineyards and the lavender fields that the island is famous for. It’s worth exploring on a day trip, as is the southern end of the island, which has some of Hvar’s most beautiful and isolated coves.
The island’s hub and busiest destination, Hvar Town is estimated to draw around 20,000 people a day in the high season. It’s odd that they can all fit in the small bay town, where 13th-century walls surround beautifully ornamented Gothic palaces and traffic-free marble streets, but fit they do.
Visitors wander along the main square, explore the sights on the winding stone streets, swim at the numerous beaches or pop off to the Pakleni Islands to get into their birthday suits – but most of all they come to party. Hvar’s reputation as Croatia’s premier party town is well deserved.
There are several good restaurants, bars and hotels here, but thanks to the island’s appeal to well-heeled guests, the prices can be seriously inflated. Don’t be put off if you’re on a lower budget though, as private accommodation and multiple hostels cater to a younger, more diverse crowd.
Hvar Island has become a favorite and treasured vacation spot. Hvar’s long history has developed into a both posh holiday destination mixed with a relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle, topped with a rich cultural and historical heritage. Oh, and let’s not forget it’s popularity with nature lovers.
Don’t let the colour deter you. This black-as-the-ace-of-spades dish is as tasty as it is ugly. It’s typically Dalmatian and is made from cuttlefish. The black colour is from the ink from the fish. It’s served with grated cheese & parsley.
Zagorski Štrukli is a popular traditional Croatian dish served in households across Hrvatsko Zagorje and Zagreb regions in the north of the country, composed of dough and various types of filling which can be either cooked or baked.

This cathedral’s square renaissance bell tower is an unforgettable sight in the evenings, when its white stone illuminated by the last light of the day and you can see right through the structure’s narrow arches.If you head into the church you’ll be confronted by a treasure trove of renaissance art.There are works by Palma Junior, Stefano Celesti and a lesser-known Spanish painter Juan Boschettus. But the absolute must-see is Madonna and Child, a Venetian work from the 1220s by an unknown artist.
Magnificent both inside and out, this walled renaissance monastery occupies a small headland near the harbour, with a bell-tower visible throughout the town. Head into the monastery to see exquisite works of high renaissance art by the Venetian painters Palma Junior and Francesco Santacroce.The highlight though is the depiction of the Last Supper measuring two metres by eight, although nobody is sure whether Palma Junior or another Venetian artist, Matteo Ingoli, painted this one.In the gardens see if you can find the historic cypress tree that has been here since the early-1700s.
It’s easy to see why visitors call this the best beach on the island. On the south coast, an easy car or scooter ride away, Dubovica is a tranquil little cove with those classic glassy blue Adriatic waters.The sea is so clear that from a distance it will look like swimmers and boats are suspended in the air.The cove cuts a long way inland and its beach is a gentle curve of small pebbles.On the west side of the bay is a little hamlet of stone houses and behind them rise dusty hills with Aleppo pines.
