Hvar town from the water
We took a day ferry to the island of Hvar
where we planned to spend about four nights, soaking up the sun, relaxing and waiting for more friends to meet up with us. The island is beautiful, the old town in Hvar is reminiscient of Dubrovnik
and the nightlife and restaurants are a blast. Hvar tends to be a bit more on the pricey side, but you can find accomodation fairly cheaply once you land on the island, numerous people are renting out rooms and apartments. There are some gorgeous hotels on the island, but are off the chart when it comes to pricing. We found a modest three bedroom right in town for a quarter the price of a hotel.
There are rock beaches within Hvar town, but the best beaches are reached through a water taxi ride to one of Hvars neighborhing islands.
Streest of Hvar.....
On all three days we were able to explore other beaches and even rented a small boat one day so we could do a bit of island hopping. That proved to be an adventure, since none of us really knew how to drive a boat, let alone try to dock it at various islands. It made for some laughs and stories we will never forget.
The nightlife in Hvar was fun, everyone got dressed and bar hopped around to different places. Hvar even has an exclusive club called Carpe Diem, which seemed like fun, but proved to be impossible to get in, unless you wanted to drop a ton of cash. After a couple of days and nights, none of us really wanted to leave, but we realized that we should move on and up the coast since we had to catch a flight from Trieste Italy on Sunday.
