With a growing reputation as Europe’s number one party destination, it is no surprise that some of the world’s top celebrities have been drawn to the Croatian island of Hvar.

Everyone from party girl Paris Hilton to future king Prince William has made the most of the town’s vibrant nightlife, but one celebrity power couple has forged an even stronger link with the area following frequent visits over the years.

Holidaying on Hvar during her pregnancy, superstar Beyonce was reportedly so taken with the beauty of her surroundings that she took it as inspiration for her daughter’s name – Blue Ivy. Of course, theories abound as to the definite provenance of the name, but video evidence posted online by Beyonce herself shows her standing next to the unusual blue ivy tree on the island and commenting on it as a potential name.

It’s a popular stop-off during Croatia sailing holidays and a desirable destination in its own right, and this touch of showbiz has done Hvar’s rising star no harm – as a result, little Blue Ivy is an honorary citizen of the town. Boasting a reported 320 sunny days each and every year, it isn’t hard to see why Hvar is considered a venue that must not be missed.
