Beach Club Hvar
Ul. Dinka Kovačevića 10, 21450, Hvar, Croatia
10 AM – 6 PM every day
Hvar Beach Club is one of the most popular beach clubs in Hvar, if not the whole of Croatia. It’s just a short walk from town, and a pleasant one too – the path dips between pine trees and views of the clearest water you’ll ever see.
The beach club is next to Bonj Beach, and looks like a Grecian palace with stunning white pillars. The setting is beautiful, looking over a small bay lined with pine trees. There’s a range of cabanas and sun loungers to choose from, with an upscale feel throughout.
If you want a dip in the water, there’s ladders to guide you in and the sea floor isn’t rocky unlike other areas. The sun beds are lovely, with thick mattresses, providing the perfect place to relax. If you need a bit of extra TLC, head to the onsite spa which provides a range of treatments and massages. You’re guaranteed to leave feeling refreshed!
The restaurant is ideal for enjoying a leisurely boozy lunch, with a menu offering delicious food and cocktails.
