Many of the beaches are pebbly, but Grebišće has silky smooth sands to bury your feet into. The narrow stretch has shallow waters for paddling and there’s a café nearby serving essential snacks and drinks. Head further down the coast to Uvala Dubovica and you’ll find a beautiful rocky patch, too.
See the sights
Visit the 15th century Franciscan Monastery overlooking a shady cove and enjoy the Venetian artwork in the museum. Why not even take in the stunning views from the top of the fabulous fortress? Once you’re there, reward yourself with glorious panoramic views over the harbour and treat yourself to coffee and cake.
Mingle with stars
Hvar Town is the A-list haven of happening Hvar Island. Tom Cruise, Michael Jordan, Beyoncé, Prince Harry and as many others have holidayed around Hvar, so it’s no surprise that it scores highly in the glam stakes with its roll call of hip bars and cool clubs.
