This island paradise is dotted with old boats bobbing in the bay where fishermen untangle their nets, steep Plavac Mali vineyards nestled at the edge of the Adriatic, lavender fields aplenty, and Europe’s oldest theatre. After a walk amongst eight centuries of architecture on the sun-kissed cobbles of Croatia’s sunniest island of Hvar, find shade at Konoba Menego, a hideout where dipping freshly baked bread into a gregada fish stew is every local’s favourite pastime. Alternatively, venture beyond the town cove by kayak to find a bay of solitude as you uncover the lush Pakleni island archipelago, Hvar’s very own backyard.
With 50% savings, hop onto Hvar with one of the 7-night itineraries on-board The Moana.
