Meeting point in Hvar at Trg svetog Stjepana 38, where you will board a comfortable speedboat.

Located in the south of the island of Hvar, the Borče Green Lagoon is a beautiful bay in Croatia, among the best beauties of the Dalmatian coastal area. The colour of the sea is a shining green that will leave you breathless and the water is so transparent that you can already see the seabed with the naked eye.

Dubovica Bay is located 8 km east of the town of Hvar and is a small but characteristic beach that can be reached mainly by boat. The special feature of Dubovica Bay is that it is located next to the beautiful country house of the Kasandric family, built between the 18th and 19th centuries. Dubovica bay is one of the most beautiful beaches in Hvar and is characterised by a pebble and small stone bottom. Its collected conformation keeps it sheltered from strong and rough seas, so it will be a pleasure to dive and swim in these waters. Next to Dubovica beach, there is a hidden cave with no entrances: one below sea level and one shallow. You can choose to visit the cave on foot or by diving. In this bay you will find a small restaurant and a bar almost camouflaged in the greenery of the place.
Among the things to see on the island of Hvar in Croatia are the Red Rocks. The name of this unmissable natural attraction comes from the colour of the limestone rocks, red in fact, which rise like a wall from the sea. If you look carefully, Hvar’s Red Rocks are centrally separated by a few vertical lines, which help to make the view very special. In the past the Red Rocks were very famous lobster fishing places in Croatia. On the right side of the most famous rocks of Hvar, there is a small cave with a pebble beach at the end. On the left side, on the other hand, the Red Rocks climb from sea level up to a height of 15 meters : they are ideal for cliff jumping enthusiasts. Once you are here, while you are taking a picture and admiring the scenery, we recommend swimming and snorkelling in front of the Red Rocks, because you might be really amazed b y the uniqueness of what’s around you.
If you are in Hvar you can’t have missed the Pakleni islands (or Spalmadori islands in italiano). The Pakleni islands are a group of islands (20 islands and islets) situated in front of the island of Hvar and characterised by a crystal clear sea that makes them a true natural paradise. Their name, Pakleni, comes from the word “paklini”, a pine resin that was used in shipbuilding. The Spalmadori islands are distributed in the Hvar archipelago and have the peculiarity of being all wooded, some of them even untouched and never uninhabited . Due to their strategic position, the Pakleni (or Spalmadori) islands have hosted many civilisations: from the Roman one of the II century b.C., to the Venetian domination (here in fact a violent battle between Venetians and Turks took place), until the Austrian power that here saw its arm red frigate sink in 1869. Still today the Spalmadori or Pakleni islands remain a coveted destination, while maintaining the characteristic of untouched islands. Admire the landscape of the Pakleni islands with a boat tour from Hvar, take beautiful pictures of the green beaches, swim and snorkel in these fauna-filled waters are truly unique experiences.
Palmižana bay is one of the most popular destinations for tourists coming to Croatia. Here you will have free time to explore the island of Palmižana, discovering beautiful nature trails, or stop and enjoy the scenery while sipping a drink at the Laganini lounge bar, or eating something in the restaurants on the beach. Do you want to know what to do at Palmižana bay? Relax and breathe nature: you are in the Pakleni islands. If you prefer, you can simply lie in the shade of the pine trees that cover this island and swim in its crystal clear sea.
Mlini beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Pakleni islands, along with Palmižana bay. Mlini beach is located on the island of Zdrilca, which is also covered by a thick pine forest like most of the islands in the Hvar archipelago in Croatia. You will also appreciate the crystal clear water and peace of this place: enjoy a dip in this wonder before returning to Hear and admire all the beauty of the Pakleni islands at sunset.
