Everything to Love About Hvar

Hvar is the perfect vacation destination. You know those places where you loose track of the days and fall into a relaxed state? It was the perfect point in our fast paced Europe trip to be here, breaking up the intense travel.

We drove by car from Kotor arriving in Dubrovnik for a few days of sightseeing before setting sail to Hvar. As soon as we arrived, it was love at first sight. We quickly slipped into a routine – early morning walks along the boulevard, a restful stop for coffee at Nonica’s (our favourite café) and then commence the day either by boat, car or foot.

The small town is warming with a laid back feel to it, yet still maintains its historic charm through architecture and the Fortica. Taking the steps up to the Fortica and paying the small entry fee is well worth it. Not only does the fort have beautiful character, it captures on obstruction free view of the entire town. A truely breathtaking sight.

Paklinski Islands

Hiring a boat for the day was one of the best experiences during our stay in Hvar. We filled the cooler with food and drinks and headed out to the Paklinski Islands. You can wing this part by driving your boat around the islands until you find somewhere to anchor and swim. We anchored at Vinogradisce Bay, jumped into the sea and sun-baked on the boat.

Eating Out

The eating highlights ended up being tucked away gems. Fig Café offered modern style café food with a Croatian twist. The fig and cheese flatbread was delicious! For the non-vegetarians the watermelon, prosciutto and feta salad sounded perfect for the hot days.

We got our daily coffee fix from Nonica Patisserie accompanied with either their melt-in-your-mouth cookies or a crumbly fruit cake (no, not like Christmas pudding) bursting with berry flavour.

Two other places that are highly rated which we didn’t get a chance to eat at; Dalmatino for the best seafood dishes and Park Hotel Restaurant for refined Mediterranean and Italian food.

What We Missed Out On

We intended on venturing out to Stari Grad and visiting other beaches like Milna and Dubovica, but we were so captivated by Hvar Town we pretty much stayed put other than our boat trip. We intended on going to the popular Hula Hula Bar on our last night, but unfortunately it rained. Saving this goodie for next time!

If Croatia is on your travel list, do make a trip to the island of Hvar. September was still unbelievably busy in the tourist attraction locations like Dubrovnik, Krka Nation Park and Plitvice Lakes. Hvar will add the perfect amount of holiday vibes to your travels. There’s just something magical about this place!

    • Me neither! At least not until we started to research Croatia. Glad you liked the post!!

  • I sound so naive, but I’ve never heard of Hvar until I saw you were there. The town looks amazing and you look super stylish, I don’t know how you do it. Keep doing travel posts, I love them x

    • There are quite a few gems in the Croatian islands and we didn’t discover this place until we started researching. I try and plan my outfits before leaving – a mixture of dressy items and comfortable activewear. So happy to hear you’re enjoying the travel posts!! ☺️

  • This is indeed so perfect vacation destination. It looks peaceful and a place to relax and unwind. I love all the pictures too, you look so pretty!

    WOW I have never heard of this place but it LOOKS so amazing!!!

  • I swear Croatia is ludicrously beautiful! I actually didn’t know anything about the place until I went there a few years ago with my parents. My godparents actually have a house in Croatia so we went to hang out with them during the summer for a week. Their place is on Brac and we took a boat over to Hvar one day and then went to a restaurant/place called Palmizana for lunch on an island just across from where Hvar is. The whole country is easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been and your photos definitely do it justice. 🙂
