Welcome to Hvar Town

Visitors wander along the main square, explore the sights on the winding stone streets, swim at the numerous beaches or pop off to the Pakleni Islands to get into their birthday suits – but most of all they come to party. Hvar's reputation as Croatia's premier party town is well deserved.

There are several good restaurants, bars and hotels here, but thanks to the island’s appeal to well-heeled guests, the prices can be seriously inflated. Don’t be put off if you’re on a more limited budget, though, as private accommodation and multiple hostels cater to a younger, more diverse crowd.

Blue and Green Cave Speedboat Tour from Hvar

Meet your skipper at Hvar port at 9am and board the speedboat for 8-hours of sun and island hopping. Enjoy the sun and views as your boat heads out over the Adriatic Sea to the spectacular Blue Cave on Biševo island. The incredible aquamarine hues of the water are a natural phenomenon caused by the sunlight pouring in through the cave roof and bouncing off the sandy seabed. After a brief stop to snap some photos and take in the beauty of the Blue cave, cruise through a ‘gateway’ of two high, rocky cliffs to Stiniva Bay. Though at first the bay seems small, it opens out into a stunning paradise. The next stop is the famous Green Cave on Ravnik island. Here you can cool off with a refreshing swim in the emerald waters, or perhaps simply enjoy the view as you enjoy some complimentary snacks onboard.  Continuing onwards, sail to Budikovac – a tiny islet known for its unspoilt beauty and sheltered lagoon. Here the boat will drop anchor to allow some time for lazing on the pebble beach or swimming and snorkeling in the idyllic turquoise waters. Snorkeling equipment is provided on board. After one last stop on the Pakleni islands, the boat returns to Hvar where the tour comes to an end at Hvar port. Please note: In cases where Blue Cave may be closed due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, you'll visit the fishing village of Komiza on the island of Vis.
