Yachting in Hvar and through Croatia allows you to explore one of Europe’s longest stretches of beautiful coastline - comprised of white cliffs, rugged caves and more than a thousand islands. Scuba dive in the colorful Adriatic reefs or sail to the neighboring Elafiti Islands or Korcula. By night, enjoy the spectacular seafood restaurants and beach clubs of what is widely considered Europe’s next major yachting destination.
Hvar, a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, with its beautiful beaches and coves, stunning coastline has now become a notable yachting destination. On land, Hvar’s highlights include its 13th-century walls, a hilltop fortress and a main square anchored by the Renaissance-era Hvar Cathedral. By sea, the island features stunning beaches, such as Dubovica, and allows access to the nearby Pakleni Islands that possess paradise-like secluded beaches and coves.
Dubovica is arguably one of the most picturesque and popular beaches on Hvar Island. It is located within a picture-perfect secluded bay with a large pebble beach surrounded by pine trees and olive groves and complemented by the stunningly transparent blue Adriatic sea. It is perfect for a relaxed day in contact with nature; one can drop anchor and spend the day onshore or simply lounging in the warm waters.
Dubovica is only one of Hvar’s majestical beaches; Pokonji Dol is the epitome of a Mediterranean dream. There you will find waters that are an insane shade of turquoise surrounded by green hills forming a gorgeous pebbly beach.
Yachting in Hvar allows for day excursions; navigate down the narrow Hvar strait to the Pakleni Islands and explore the plethora of unbelievably crystal-clear, turquoise bays full of hidden beaches and deserted lagoons. Drop anchor and jump straight off the bow into the clear blue waters under the beautiful mediterranean sun.
Back in Hvar and on land, you will find one of the most picturesque views of Hvar from high above the at the Hvar Fort. It overlooks the contrast between red roofs and white-washed walls of the old town down with Hvar’s crystal-blue shoreline, in the distance you will be able to spot the shining turquoise waters of the Pakleni Islands. The fortress was constructed in the 13th century on the site of a former Byzantine city dating to the 6th century. Currently the Hvar Fort houses a small museum showing a collection of historical artefacts found on the seabed around Hvar.
Additionally, Hvar is also home to spectacular seafood and a fantastic nightlife. Make your way to Laganini Lounge Bar to savour the best seafood there is, and end your night at Pink Champagne Club.
