Hvar is the perfect location to visit during summer and live your yachting holiday in luxury and style.
The small town of Hvar was named after the Dalmatian island it’s located on; Hvar. It is the island’s main harbour and a popular destination for yachts. It is just across from the neighbouring Pakleni islands known for their sandy beaches and water so clear it makes boats seem floating.
The town has the perfect balance between luxurious and traditional, with a large number of restaurants, gift shops, wine shops, and hidden alleys. It makes the perfect place for those seeking for adventure, parties, and those looking for peace at mind.
Hvar really comes alive at night, the lights from houses, boats and streets setting a dream-like atmosphere.
The town attracts hundreds of young people with the popular bars and discos, like Hula Hula beach bar, most popularly Carpe Diem, which is ironically opened all night, with its famous cocktail evenings. A ten minute boat ride away from the harbour, the fun doesn’t stop until sunrise, where globally popular DJs are spinning all night. Most people go for a quick tour of the surrounding islands during the day, and then go to parties, known for their feel-good vibe and good music.
If partying isn’t your thing, don’t worry! During the day, this town is pulsating with locals and travellers, the riva being a very exciting place to take pictures. The island gets the most hours in the sun from all the islands in the Adriatic, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore.
Depending on how you prefer to explore Hvar island, you can engage in additional sea activities such as paddle surfing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and jet ski rides.
