More about Hvar
Hvar town is one of the most fun-loving destinations in all of Croatia, some of them even call it “second Ibiza”. Its intricately carved Venetian architecture and wide, made of stones, seaside promenade make Hvar town one of the “must visit” destination in Croatia, especially by night.
Newcomers quickly settle into the Hvar rhythm: beach, sundowner drinks at Hula-Hula Hvar, dinner somewhere fabulous, then endless cocktails and late-night dancing at the harbourside bars. Hike up to the Fort and enjoy a delightful view of Hvar and Devil’s islands nearby.
For visiting Hvar town, we highly recommend mooring your boat in marina Palmižana (Devil’s Islands) and take a local water taxi to Hvar town.
