The beaches are ready. The water is warm. The summer fun is about to begin.
Come on in, the water's lovely! Famed for its pristine seas, swimming off the shores of Hvar is idyllic. While there is an 85 year-old lady in Jelsa who swims every day, less hardy souls tend to stick from May to October.
There is a great selection of beaches on Hvar. Popular family beaches include Soline near Vrboska and Mina and Grebišće near Jelsa. The Pakleni Islands have plenty to offer, while naturists can indulge themselves freely in a number of dedicated spots.
Rocky, concrete or sandy, everyone has their personal favourite, so why not go off the beaten track and discover yours?
