The island of Hvar is one of many incredible islands that make up the stunning country of Croatia. And during the summer months, Hvar town is one of the most popular places in the Adriatic Sea. Its small marina is home to some of the world’s most incredible super yachts and beautiful people seem to just mill everywhere. Seriously Croatians are absolutely gorgeous.
Hvar town is one of the most popular places on the island to spend an evening wining and dining. Or climbing to the fortress that sits atop a very large hill. And what Hvar town lacks in actual beaches (spoiler alert: there’s barely anything you would call a traditional beach in Hvar town) it makes up for in beach clubs.
Hvar Beach Club
You’ll find the Hvar Beach Club, which happens to be one of the most popular and famous beach clubs in Hvar, if not Croatia a short stroll from the main town. The walk to Hvar Beach Club is exceptionally pretty as you follow the path that dips beneath pine trees and the clearest water you can find.
Seriously, Croatia does a color of water that isn’t even comparable to that of Greece. It’s divine.
Sitting prettily in a stunning bay and next to Bonj Beach is the Hvar Beach Club which was established in 1927. From the distance, it looks like a Grecian palace with its stunning white pillars and clubhouse facade.
The setting of Hvar Beach Club couldn’t be prettier it overlooks the incredible aquamarine waters in a small bay lined with pine trees and nearby Bonj Beach. With a variety of cabanas and sun loungers to choose from, a day spent at the sophisticated Hvar Beach Club is something you won’t forget in a hurry.
With ladders providing access to the incredible water, there’s no need for sea shoes here (an absolute necessity everywhere else) in Hvar Beach Club. The sun beds have thick mattresses which will leave you well-rested, but of course, a visit to the onsite Spa may be required to work out those aches and pains of daily everyday life.
The spa at Hvar Beach Club offers a range of spa treatments and massages for guests of the beach club. The Summer Breeze Massage sounds like the perfect solution for anyone who wants to have a relaxing neck and shoulder massage and is guaranteed to leave people feeling refreshed.
