Hvar in September
by Brien from Finland
Hvar - September 2009.
We visited the island of Hvar, Croatia , from Sept 11 - 16, 2009, staying at the Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort.
As most of the beaches we found were shingle, having the pool at the hotel was essential to keep our 6 year old happy.
Apart from some FKK beaches around, there was little chance for a naturist experience at our end of Hvar.
The Pakleni islands were mentioned (Jerolim & Stipanska), but the restaurants there had already closed for the off season, and there was very little at Palmiziana for naturists.
However there is a coast path from Hvar to the next town down the coast - Milna. From the back of Hvar, you can drop down to the shore to a small beach with a restaurant. Once you have gone about 100m east on the path towards Milna, you are pretty much on your own. And in September I only met one other person on the trail, and he was wearing the same as what I was - nothing. In the high season you might have to take more care.
About half way along is a small bay with a cafe - Robinsons, and dress here is definitely optional. Half of those on the beach had only their towels. As you approach Milna the path goes up to go around a bluff, then drops steeply down to the first of the three Milna beaches. This is an FKK beach, so you can stretch out again here.
Once you reach the end of this beach you'll need to dress though as the next beach is part of the public campground, and then you're in Milna itself.
So you have a lovely two hour walk from the last restaurant leaving Hvar to the first beach approaching Milna. Lots of coastal views and seaside scenery. If you're not sure about transport - take the morning bus to Milna (9.45am) and then walk back at your own speed.
So we might not have got the best naturist experiences that are available, but that will not stop us going back again to this lovely area.
