Best Time To Visit: May to October is great for sailing, with the shoulder seasons being quiet and warm.
Key Cruising Areas: The island of Hvar is an ideal start exploring the many small islands and harbors of the Croatian coastline. Sailing south, the neighboring countries of Montenegro and Albania are often overlooked but fantastic destinations.
Don’t Miss: Although relatively new to the party scene, Hvar is becoming known as the choice of the more discerning rich and famous and must be sampled. After warming up with cocktails at Bar Bolera, head to the exclusive Carpe Diem to rub shoulders with celebrities. For an incredible night visit Veneranda – an open-air nightclub set in a Venetian fortress, or for a more relaxed evening enjoy the jazz and blues at Central Park Club.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The nightlife of Hvar is unparalleled, and the island offers a selection of delectable restaurants to start your evening. The area of Gorda north of the town square is a network of alleys filled with high-quality restaurants. The creative twists on traditional dishes that can be found at Giaxa stand out. Fresh ingredients and perfect execution in a stunning setting make an unforgettable meal – try the tasting menus in the summer and bread baked in-house.
