Naturally, the height of summer sees the height of Hvar’s popularity as a go-to destination. But don’t be put off by the inevitable crowds, as this simply adds to the allure and excitement Hvar has cultivated over the last ten years. And before the island becomes alive with nightlife, there are plenty of opportunities to relax in secluded bays or swim in the sea as Hvar is well served by beautiful beaches.


During the summer months, early afternoon sees the party begin and by nightfall the island is abuzz with both locals and tourists getting ready to have a good time. Bars, eateries and clubs are often open well past midnight, meaning that the party on Hvar almost never ends.


And if you have the energy to make the most of Hvar’s all-night partying opportunities, rest assured that the next morning you will find plenty of welcoming cafes open and ready to serve you a potentially much-needed cup of coffee.
