It is situated in a bay on the southwest coast of the island, facing the sun and the sea it offers you the most memorable sunsets you will never forget.

After breakfast, enjoy the beach or just explore the town on your own. Do not miss the morning coffee at “Pjaca” as locals do. Later, we invite you to spend a half-day away from the beach to learn more about Hvar’s fabulous food and wine story. On your way to one of the Hvar winemakers and passing the picturesque old road through historic villages such as Brusje and Selca, you will enjoy views of lavender fields, olive groves, and vineyards. The winery visit is followed by dinner at a secret location (in an olive grove, abandoned village, or in a private household) with an experienced chef.

This gastro tour can be a great introduction for a long night ahead. The best way to end the day in Hvar is to go dancing until sunrise, especially if there is a full moon. Walking through the narrow streets of the city centre, you will find lots of bars, terraces with D.J.s and clubs with lots of happy people. You can even ride the free taxi boats that are docked on the “riva” and you can feel the colours of Hvar’s nightlife at a beach bar on a private island.

From the moment you embark on the vessel, you will be enchanted by the sea cliffs and the views of the horizon. After reaching Biševo (Blue Cave island) we will disembark from our speedboat into the Blue Cave’s dinghy which will take us directly inside the cave. During peak season there will be a queue, so please be patient and be prepared to wait up to 30 minutes or more until one of the boats is available. The shuttle ride takes about 20 min. The best time to visit the Blue Cave is between 11 AM – 2 PM when the sun rays create a magnificent aquamarine light that bathes the inside of the cave and turns white objects into silver.
