on the island of Hvar
In September 2001 my husband
and I spent three splendid weeks on the island of
Hvar, in the autocamp Nudist near beautiful old
town called Vrboska. We started our trip in Ljubljana
at 30.08 early in the morning. After a long drive
with only a few short stops, we stayed in a small
near Trogir and stayed there for two days. Trogir
is an old town, full of historical monuments and
very picturesque. It's just like 25 years ago, when
we visit Trogir for the first time. The surroundings
are a bit different, of course, there's a lot of
new buildings, specially at the island of Ciovo.
the 1st of September we continued our trip to Split,
Omis, Podgora and finally Drvenik, where the car
ferry drives to Sucuraj on the island of
Hvar. Sucuraj looks as a likable small village.
They also have a naturist camp there. But we continued
to Jelsa and Vrboska. The road is only for very
brave drivers. It's
very narrow and without any protection enclosures.
So after 50 km of horror drive we finally came to
Jelsa, where the road is much better. But
on the other hand that road is very interesting.
You can enjoy there untouched nature and take a
look at the places tourists usually don't see. There
are many possibilities for Robinson tourism.
the evening we came to Nudist autocamp and
immediately noticed that's a right place for us.
It's a small autocamp, very peacefull. Guests were
mostly from Germany, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Netherlands
and some others. They were all very communicative
so we made some new acquaintances very soon. The
personnel was very kind, but not intruding. The
beach is pretty short and rocky, but on the
left side there's a long clothing optional beach
where almost everyone is nude, so there's a lot
of possibilities to find a place to enjoy privacy
or a long nude walk. In the opposite of the main
beach is Zecevo, a small naturist island. If you
have any kind of boat, you can go there easily.
If you don't, you can use a taxi boat from Vrboska
we had some rainy days, we made some trips to places
around Vrboska. Hvar is one of the most beautifull
towns in Dalmatia. There's an ancient castle above
the town. There's a good view to the town and Pakleni
islands. In the castle they have a museum where
you can learn a lot of Hvar's history. The town
is full of good restaurants and possibilities to
have some fun. You can use one of many taxi boats
to go to Pakleni islands or the Sv. Jerolim island
to enjoy nude beaches there.
Starigrad is the hometown
of the famous Croatian poet Petar Hektorovic. His
cottage is worth of notice.
Nedjelja is a village on the south side of the
island. There's a road from Jelsa trough a narrow
tunnel to that village. That side of the island
is full of rock walls. Like everywhere at the Croatian
coast there's some hidden nude beaches. They also
offer taxi boats to the island of Scedro, where
is a naturist beach as well.
were very impressed by Humac, a small village
close to Jelsa, on the top of the island. No one
lives there now, all of people left it years ago.
Abandoned houses are very picturesque and we believe
there's some kind of source of positive lifes energies.
There's a small
church nearby, which is open only twice a year.
And there's an original Dalmatian tavern. They offer
traditional Dalmatian dishes, not like other restaurants.
They produce their own food and only in natural
Unless we wish to stay on Hvar
forever, the time came to go home. We used the big
car ferry from Starigrad to Split, which is the
shortest way to go to Slovenia. On the way home
we spent one night in Vodice, close to Sibenik.
That day we visited a beautiful national park at
What else can we say? We love
Croatia and see you next summer!
