Cruise to the Sunniest Spot in Europe
If heaven really was a place on earth, then we’re pretty sure it would be the island of Hvar. Bold statement? Maybe. But we can offer plenty to back that up.
To start with, Hvar is known as the “Sunniest Place in Europe”, receiving an average of 7.7 hours of sunshine per day. So naturally sunbathing is a favorite pastime here, especially at the beaches of Dubovica and the Pakleni Islands. And if you’ve forgot your swimsuit, not to worry: You can always go to Jerolim, “one of the best nudist destinations in the world.”
There are plenty more jaw-dropping sights to be seen here: lush olive groves, fruit orchards, fields of lavender, and dozens of vineyards, since Hvar is considered one of the top winemaking regions in Croatia.
Head to Hvar Town, where you can pair a crisp white posip with the local delicacy of grilled squid drizzled in olive oil, and then settle in at one of the many restaurants and cafés that overlook the Adriatic Sea. That way you’ll have a prime viewing (and participatory) spot when the sun finally goes down…and when Hvar really lights up. Sounds like heaven to us!Download An Explorer Guide +
