Hvar Guides

Guide to Hvar

This is the place to sip ostentatious cocktails, rent a motorboat and glide around the tiny islands.

Playground for the rich and famous, in recent years Hvar has hosted the likes of Beyoncé, Eva Longoria and even Prince Harry, who infamously tumbled into a pool at Veranda nightclub.

Facts About Hvar

Top Attractions

Hvar Fortress

For the best views, head up to the Fortica, Hvar’s city fortress. It’s worth the climb – you’ll be able to see right out to sea across the Pakleni Islands and red rooves of Hvar Town.

Beaches

Hitting the beach is what Hvar is all about – most are rocky or pebbly so bring a towel to lie on, but you’ll find plenty of secluded spots for that all-important sunbathing. Amfora is the largest but there’s also Dubovika beach which is accessible via boat.

Beach Nightclubs

Hvar hosts some of Europe’s best and most enticing nightlife. Ever dreamed of sipping cocktails under the stars, right on the beach? That’s exactly what you can do at Hvar’s clubs. Check out Carpe Diem Beach or Hula Hula to watch the sun set (or rise?) in style.

15th Century Franciscan Monastery

Wandering around the old town is a cultural experience in itself, but to immerse yourself further, investigate the 15th Century Franciscan Monastery in Hvar town, as well as St Stephan’s Cathedral on the main square.
