We are taking a break from YouTube this week, but that doesn’t mean other channels will suffer. We have been posting on Instagram and Facebook regularly.
😍 Are you following us jet?
I (Maya) visited HVAR island last weekend with my girls and Diano stayed in our Split home editing Frode Borge videos. Check him out, if you haven’t already -> Frode.
So, since we took a break from video I packed light. That means no Lumix, no GoPro, no tripod, no Mavic drone (pictures will be lover quality). Just swim suit, warm clothes for night time (always bring warm clothes when visiting island) and jumped on Jadrolinija ferry from Split with Andrea & Maja. We took car with us, which made ferry ticket super expensive. Find prices here -> Car ferry.
On island Hvar, we arrived in Stari Grad. It was very late, so we had dinner in the city.
Our pick was cozy little tavern called “La Gitana“, recommended by my friend Tea. The food was amazing and it’s host, Mateo, wonderful! He welcomed us to island with couple shots of rakija and good time.
We booked lovely Pension Tamaris in Sveta Nedjelja on south side of island Hvar. Book accommodation on island Hvar -> HERE. There isn’t much to do in Sveta Nedjelja and we wanted just that – do nothing. We ended up doing so much of “nothing”, so keep reading :).
In the morning we had coffee in our Pension with a million dollar view.
We went for a walk around the village. This picturesque place by the sea is famous for Zlatan otok Marina, Restaurant and under sea wine cellar.
When in Sveta Nedjelja, you cannot miss the Lučišća beach. Take a swim in crystal clear turquoise blue sea.
We had late lunch/early dinner in “Dvor Duboković Tavern” in village Pitve, typical Dalmatian village with stone houses, narrow paved streets and untouched nature.
After dinner, we drove to city of Hvar for a drink. There isn’t much to say about Hvar, that I haven’t already. City has so much beauty and history, on one hand, and crazy night life, on the other. It is also the most expensive city on island, so come “money prepared”.
Next, and our last day, we went for a morning swim. Having a car on island Hvar is an amazing thing. You wake up in the morning and just pick one, of many beautiful beaches, for your morning swim. This time we drove (and walked) to Gromin Dolac beach. From Zavala the dirt road leads east towards the village of Gromin Dolac. We found a parking in the woods and walked to series of perfectly clean, azure blue beaches.
We were alone for hours, just enjoying quiet crickets song, smell of pine forests and the calm beauty of Adriatic sea. Only thing that was able to move us from that beach was HUNGER :). We hoped in car and drove to Vrbovska for lunch. Food was horrible, skip Konoba Lem, but city is lovely.
Last night in Hvar, we bumped into my friend Žile, remember him from our Escape blog? He invited girls to see Escape, so after lunch, he & Monga picked us up with boat in Basina bay and drove us to hidden Escape location. Girls loved it!
When I reflect on this trip, I have a feeling like we were on Hvar for a month, but in reality it was just 2 days. Having 2 days off, sometimes, it is all the time you need to recharge. Honestly, being with Andrea and Maja on this trip, made Hvar so much better!
Call your friends right now and organize trip to Hvar! Take a car and visit several places, like we did. If you have questions about how to get to certain beach, food cost or tips for car transport, hit us down with question in comments. I would love to help you!
