Ah, Hvar. It’s one of the few places we’d return to – and we’re already looking for a way to get back ASAP. Our travels through Croatia coincided with summer, the time of the year when Hvar oozes with an irresistible energy fused by the warm weather, beautiful people and lively bars. But my favorite part of Hvar’s island life was that from 7 AM to 7 PM, the rocky coastline would be dotted with sunbathers, along waters so pristine that we could jump in for a dip just about anywhere.

In the months leading up to our trip, I’d read such glowing phrase for Croatia’s archipelago paradise. Every photo of every island looked like a European postcard – Korcula, Bol, Vis, Hvar – and before I knew it, most of our itinerary was dedicated to these gems of the Adriatic. Thankfully, the idyllic islands were absolute bliss – bursting with vibrant energy, idyllic waters and sunbathing 24/7. The perfect place for summertime frolicking on the Mediterranean … ♥
