More good internatioanl press for the island of Hvar as the season approaches – the island has been featured in the top 20 family summer holidays in Europe by The Guardian.
Or more precisely, one little destination in Vlaka on the largest of the Pakleni Islands, Sveti Klement. Here is what The Guardian had to say:
Island Escape, Croatia.
Price for 4 £263 half-board
Best for ages 13+
Type of trip Beach
While all the 20-year-olds hit the bars of Hvar Town, your brood can zip away from the quay in an inflatable speedboat, as guests of The Fisherman’s House on Sveti Klement, a Maldivian atoll lookalike west of Hvar. The Matejevic family, with their dogs, cats and kids, run a simple six-room pension by the turquoise water of Vlaka Bay, which is ideal for swimming from the pebble beach, hammock swinging, and running wild. Older teens can walk around the island, stopping at beaches along the way – or petition to be allowed a water-taxi over to Hvar to party.
