Partying on Hvar
Hvar island is a surefire spot to get your groove on. Fun is round the clock here—you'll find sunset beach parties, full-moon revelries, and bass-infused beach bashes. Don’t miss designer cocktails at Carpe Diem, a seafront bar that placed Hvar firmly on the world’s party map. DJs spin fresh tunes and a party-happy crowd dances inside palace arches. For serious nighttime fun, the sound of deep house, and star-splattered skies, take a boat to Carpe Diem Beach in the secluded Stipanska Bay on Pakleni Otoci, an archipelago of islets just offshore. Book a sun bed at Hula-Hula Hvar for front-row seats to the sunset, with an iced bottle of Veuve Clicquot and a soundtrack of lounge-y tunes.
An island worth getting back to-HVAR
We absolutely loved HVAR where we travelled with a couple of teenagers that can be hard to please. it was a win win island for all of us. Easy to find some action at the local beach clubs, or hula hula beach bar, but walk around the island from town and you will find serenity and a quiet place to swim and chill. The medieval city of HVAR is quaint and incredibly well preserved with lovely sites and great restaurants. Can't wait to come back and stay a bit longer next time!

Island hopping in Croatia
Croatia is absolutely gorgeous on land and from sea. But with so many islands to explore being on a boat is a great way to experience its coast.
We hired a wonderful captain for a few day trips, and made our way from HVAR down to Dubrovnik...we definitely preferred this to being in a car.

Vlaka, Clearly
I did not take this picture because I thought it made my legs look fabulous. I took it because I could not believe how perfectly clear the water was. It was cool, refreshing and hidden. I was standing in Vlaka cove, on the tiny island of Sv. Klement, Croatia. Saint Klement, as it is also known, is a short boat ride from the island of Hvar. Hvar is chic, buzzing with restaurants, clubs and beautiful people. On a July afternoon, my husband and I hired a local boatman to ferry us over to Saint Klement in search of an oasis of quiet and simplicity. After being dropped at the rocky shoreline (no dock), we scrambled up the hillside and noticed a wooden sign nailed to a tree with the words “Dionis restorau” in faded blue paint at the beginning of a stony trail. We climbed the path for five minutes through low scrubby brush and came upon some tables and chairs under an awning, where grilled food was served by the lone waiter/cook from an open air kitchen. We were the only guests. We enjoyed a delicious grilled fish, eggplant and cold beer lunch, and then ambled for fifteen minutes down to the other side of the islet for a nap and a dip in the water. Nobody was there but the two of us. And, by the looks of the clean, clean water, not too many people had been there before us either.

Last Light
You know the feeling.
As the sun sets and closes the door on a beautiful, relaxing day, you secretly say to yourself "Sun, don't go...just stay a little while longer". That was this moment. Spent snorkeling in the cove, watching people on their yachts, boys competing in an impromptu stone-skipping contest (which I'd take a gander is a regular event around here). You can't help but want to stay forever.

Hvar Island and Pakleni Islands
Hvar Island was one of the ports a call in a recent cruise I took. Hvar is very picturesque and charming. They grow lavender on the island so if you are a lavender lover like I am you will be in heaven. They sell all different kinds of lavender products all along the port. There is even a picking lavender tour for those interested. I was not able to go as I decided to take a tour of the Pakleni islands (you can rent a boat at port). Have lunch at Palmizana beach and then you can take a dip in the beach or a nap before heading back to Hvar.

Hvala Hvala
The most legendary Croatian party island is Hvar. Little touched (or troubled it seems) by past history, Hvar is one of the few places in the world where you can order breakfast cocktails and then not move until midnight.

The town’s buzz was nearly palpable with a cacophony of calls from the marketplace. “You English, You English” beckoned this smiling mouth with the gold teeth, her hands dangling a lace creation. After the customary exchange, it was Hvala, Hvala (thanks) then off to her next customer.

Visit the enchanting, aromatic island of Hvar
Explore every nook of this charming island and breathe in the smells of fresh lavender, rosemary, capers, pomegranates, chamomile, and more! Take a water taxi or ferry from Brac or Korcula.

Cycle the hills of Hvar (earn your beach cocktail)
After several days on the Hvar beaches, my boyfriend and I decided a little exercise was necessary if we were to continue in such an over-indulgent vein.

The hills are hard work, especially if, like us, you borrowed bikes from your hostel and your footwear choice stretched from flip flops to flip flops. The view from the top is absolutely stunning, and there is some room by the side of the road for a picnic or a drink.

The ride down is a little hairy (some of the bends are quite sharp and the cobbles don't make it any easier) but there aren't too many cars so you can release the brakes a bit and enjoy the breeze in the heat.

Once at sea level again, I would recommend pushing the bikes around the sea promenade as far as you can go. This is not only a peaceful spot with beautiful views - there is an idyllic bar (the name of which I can't remember) serving a short menu of food and drinks at Hvar cheap prices served as you lounge on bean bags overlooking the ocean - you'll have deserved it by then.

The exact route we took - head east on S. Buzolic Tome, then left onto Domovinskog rata, continuing on the D116. After 2km turn left toward Ul. Biskupa Jurja Dubokovica and then turn onto that road. After just over 1km turn right onto Pavla Rossa then follow the road down to the sea.

On the Road in Hvar
The islands of Croatia are no longer dots steadily connecting visitors to a trail off the beaten path. But if you come in mid-autumn, when Hvar has lost its summer crowds and the sun still shines warm on its coast, you’ll find an island seemingly undiscovered. Rent Vespas in town, otherwise known as the small cluster of storefronts on the harbor, and putt-putt along the Adriatic before ascending into the mountains. Traffic will be almost nonexistent on the two-lane highway, but a lack of guardrails on the curving hills will keep you from speeding. Rush past open expanses of greenery, and watch as the turquoise water blurs between trees. Stone homes will occasionally come into view, but you’ll mostly be on your own.

Exploring Croatia on a Gulet with Friends
Sailing holidays are a fantastic and memorable experience where you will relax and have fun away from the noisy cities.My previous experience at the see was even more fun when we rented a gulet to celebrate the 5th wedding anniversary with my family and 3 friends at the Croatian coast. The booking was done in advance online by a gulet charter in Croatia, 2 months prior the actual day. The gulet could only accommodate 6 people allowing us to enjoy our privacy unlike in big cruise ships

Celebrating our anniversary in Croatia was motivated by the great and ancient tourist attractions including archaeological sites.The three day holiday started on a Saturday at the Croatia Coastline. The breathtaking quiet and stylish villages and nature was a good way to start our journey. The gulet cruise took us to various towns in including Hvar, Gocek and Gokova Bay, Split as well as Dubrovnik. The captain would stop once in a while at the various beaches for us to enjoy fishing, kayaking swimming and even sunbathe at the foredeck of the gulet. The visit to various islands including Brac,Kornati and Korcula was just spectacular.We wound up our holiday by visiting the Krka waterfalls to capture the beautiful scenery nature has to offer.Taking a gulet was a luxurious way to celebrate the anniversary and the experience was made unforgettable by the delicious meals prepared by the crew.
