Croatia, September 2002

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 textile Trogircamp 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.

PodgoraAt 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. Horror roadIt'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.

In VrboskaAt 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 Evening on Zecevothe 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 or Jelsa.

View on Pakleni and Hvar from the castleSince 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.

Sveta NedjeljaSveta NedjeljaSv. 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.

HumacWe 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 Humacsmall 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 way.

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 Krka waterfalls.

What else can we say? We love Croatia and see you next summer!
