Hvar at number one again…
With all the global plaudits and column inches about the island, Hvar is becoming a lot more discovered internationally these days. The latest endorsement from The Points Guy has Hvar in its familiar position of number 1.
1. Hvar, Croatia. Set off the coast of the Dalmatian archipelago in the Adriatic Sea, Hvar is becoming ever more glamorous by the day: a sexy spot ideal for lolling around in as little clothing as possible while sipping plavac, the island’s local red wine. A throwback to the heyday of St. Tropez (or Ibiza, before soap-filled nightclubs became a thing), Hvar is kept from becoming over-touristed by its large number of rocky beaches; sand is sparse around these parts. Many visitors rent a boat during the day and explore the island’s bar scene in the evening, but you could also hike up to the Spanjol Fortess to get panoramic views of the island, or explore ancient seaside villages bordered by vineyards, such as Stari Grad, a World Heritage Site that was first colonized by the Greeks in the 4th century BC. Dive into the hip, luxurious restaurant and hotel scene, including the Riva Yacht Harbour Hotel, a sultry boutique property fit for spending the night or just enjoying a few cocktails. The best option for arrival is to fly into Split (SPU) or Dubrovnik (DBV), and then take a boat or ferry over to Hvar.
