on the island of Hvar
& Grażyna from Warsaw, Poland
Croatia, September 1999, Trip report sent in Aug,
If you want to fall in
love with Croatia, just visit the town of Hvar on
the Hvar island. In September 1999 we spent our
honey-moon in this place.
|Hvar and Pakleni Islands
We have visited many places
in Croatia, but Hvar seems to be one of the greatest
tourist destinations in this country. The medieval
town, with palaces built in Venetian style, with
narrow stone streets and picturesque port, is just
marvellous. Opposite Hvar there is archipelago of
small uninhabited islands. This is an ideal place
for romantic holidays. According to the Traveller
monthly Hvar belongs to ten the most beautiful islands
of the world, together with such fames like the
Ponza, Bali, Mykonos and others.
As this is hard to find
a good beach in town, the best thing is to take
a taxi boat to one of the above-mentioned nearby
islands of so called the Pakleni Otoci archipelago.
The two nearest islands (Jerolim & Stipanska) are
for naturists only, the third one (Palmizana) is
much bigger and has textile and nude beaches. In
1999 return fare for taxi boat was 10 kunas for
Jerolim and Stipanska and 25 kunas for Palmizana.
We spent whole days on
the Stipanska. The beaches close to mini marina
were rather crowded, but we found a very peaceful
bay where we stayed alone. The nearest couple took
sun-bathing 50 m far away from us. We can recommend
this place for shy beginners. Beaches are rocky
so it is good to take a mattress. There is a mini
bar on the island so you should not get hungry.
OK, so go to Hvar. You
will not be disappointed. A few years ago a friend
of mine came to Hvar for one week…. and stayed a
This year we go to Croatia
once again. On our way back from the Lastovo island
we are going to make a stop-over in Hvar. Hope to
