Hvar has quite rightly earned its current reputation for being one of the best party locations in not just Europe but across the world. However, there is more to Hvar than meets the eye, and although its famous nightspots are a must-visit, why not explore a little further afield when enjoying a Croatia sailing break?

The natural beauty of the nearby Pakleni Islands might just take your breath away. Not far from Hvar’s south-western coast, these islands lie like jewels in the bright blue of the Adriatic, and their appeal lies in their simplicity. Here you really will have the chance to get back to nature.

If you want an unforgettable view of Hvar Town itself, then a trek up to Hvar Fortress is a must. Nestled on the hills above the town, this 16th-century structure creates a wonderful silhouette from afar and provides truly memorable views from up close.

When rest and relaxation are the order of the day, you could make your way east of Hvar Town to the secluded beach at Dubovica. From the welcoming coves to the striking scenery, Dubovica is the ideal place to make the most of the waters that surround Hvar.

So there you have it – from the buzz of the nightlife to the calm of the day, Hvar really does have it all.
