SPEEDBOAT DISCOVERY OF 6 TOP BEACHES ON EUROPE'S SUNNIEST ISLAND
Hvar, the sunshine island, where the average of 2718 hours a year of golden rays has led to a local wine being named after those numbers, and which makes it officially the sunniest place in Europe. And what does one need to enjoy a little sunshine? Yes, Hvar has an abundance of incredible beaches for sun-worshippers, from the naturist to the family, the secluded to the town beach. Whatever you are looking for in a beach, you will find it on Hvar.
But what if it were possible to check out a range of beaches in one day, to reach them all be speedboat and sample them all, both the beaches and their facilities, before returning back to Hvar Town for an evening of fun? Welcome to the Hvar Tours 6 Beaches Tour, new for 2017.
Check in or start for this tour is in the Hvar Tours DMC office located on the main Hvar square OR on the pier in front of the Hotel Amfora.
Boarding on the speedbots we will start our morning part with the southern lagoons and bays of Hvar Island with the following details and itinerary:
10:30 Stop 1: Lučišće bay – 30min Lučišće beach located beneath a huge rocky formation not far from Sveta Nedjelja. Small in size and relatively inaccessible by car, it is ideal for speedboat arrival. It is regarded by some as Hvar's most beautiful beach, and one with legendary procreative powers. A good way to start the day!
11:30 Stop 2: Dubovica bay – 1:30min Dubovica bay, one of the most beautiful Croatian beaches at all, and certainly one of the most photographed with its iconic stone house in the water. Here you can enjoy the swimming but also sample a mojito or to at the local beach bar. Here we will give you a nice culinary tip. Right next to the small church on the beach, there is a local tavern, which is owned by the family Lovrincevic, who's owner is a passionate fisherman and every day you can find simple but fresh and tasty meals. Particularly recommended are the small fried fresh cuttlefish and prawns.
13:30 Stop 3: Zaraće lagoon – 30 min Zaraće is one of the most beautiful wild lagoons on Hvar islands south shore. With its two bizarre rock formations jutting out either side, it has even been used for a filmset. Both rock formations have their attractions – Malo Zarace closer to Hvar Town has no restaurant but a church right on the rock above Malo Zarace, while Velo Zarace offers a nice pebble beach and interesting roc formations, as well as restaurants on the beach for a drink.
14:30 Stop 4: Kordovon Beach – 60min If ever there was a beach for everyone, it is Kordovon. CNN's top naturist beach in the world in 2011, in Huffington Post's top 7 secret beaches in Europe, and a fashion shoot location for Vogue Australia, this idyllic beach on Jerolim is a true hidden gem. From the unorthodox art made from driftwood in the numerous pine trees to Hvar's most unconventional toilet, Kordovon oozes originality, nature and the warmest of welcomes. There is bar, sunbeds and simple menu.
16:00 Stop 5: Mline Beach – 60min Next stop is Mline beach, a firm local favourite, and if they locals are heading there with so much choice around, there must be a reason. A family friendly people beach with crystal clear sea, its western orientation guarantees more hours of sun. A great chilling zone, you can find cabanas, sunbeds and a simple restaurant run by the Dujmovic – Tartaja family.
17:00 Stop 6: Palmižana Beach – 1:30min And why not save the most fascinating for last. Palmizana may look like just another ordinary beach on approach, but included in the offer of its five waterfront restaurants are an art gallery, arboretum, cocktail bar, celebrity hideouts, and THAT 10-course meal that Bono so much enjoyed in the summer of 2016. An excellent beach with plenty of variety to finish.
