Croatia’s most fashionable island resort, Hvar Town numbers Prince Harry, Keira Knightley and Daniel Craig among its recent guests. It’s a magnet for yachting types, hence the pricey rustic-chic seafood restaurants.
Hvar’s beaches are perfect for lazing on by day – and there are plenty of beaches to party on all night
The most central beach is Bonj les Bains, a pebble bay rimmed by a curving white Thirties stone colonnade. Or, for a back-to-nature experience, catch a taxi-boat to the secluded pebble coves and pinewoods of the Pakleni islets. After dinner, take a midnight taxi-boat to Carpe Diem Beach in Stipanska Bay – a magical setting for all-night partying.
