With all the beaches Hvar has to offer, it’s hard to know which one to choose. With only 2 nights in Hvar and only 1 full day to worship the sun, wasting time was not an option and planning in advance was a must.
After much research, I found a little gem called Mekicevica, a beach sandwiched between Milna and Pokonji Dol Beach, which also has its own rather famous restaurant, Robinsons. It was music to my ears to have a choice of beaches, along with somewhere to eat during the day without having to leave the area. It is also a short boat road from the port of Hvar.
The bay of Mekicevica is made up of two pebble beaches which can easily be accessed by a short walk through small bushland. Seeing everyone on our small boat head in the direction to the “main” beach, we walked through the bush path to the second bay and found ourselves in the company of only 2 other sun worshipers. An almost empty beach, crystal clear waters, complete bliss!
Mekicevica Beach can be accessed by boat from Hvar town for 50 Kuna per person return trip or by foot from Pokonji Dol. The boat departs the port at 11am and has two pick up times in the afternoon.
This restaurant may look more like a rustic shed, but you can’t beat the views or the food. Choose to relax on a deck chair under the olive trees while the chickens run freely around you, or order food and take a swim while the food is prepared fresh. Robinsons serves mainly seafood with limited vegetarian options (I chose a salad ), but there is a choice to pre-order food as well. It is also recommended to reserve a table in advance as this tiny place is a popular one.
After lunch at Robinsons, we explored all of the little cove in the bay. There is a smaller bay behind the rocks that is known to nudists, but we didn’t see anyone on the day.
Hvar – Where to Drink
Hula Hula Beach Bar – Blessed with beach babes, boys, booze and beats. The best place to watch the sunset, start early at 6pm and stay for the party.
Falko Beach Bar – 15minutes walk from the seafront, the chilled beats makes this bar a little more relaxed than Hula Hula
Butchery and Wine – A European restaurant/bar with a michelin star wine list. Great for people watching from the outdoor lounges.
Where we ate
Luna – 1 Petar Hektorovica, Hvar
Great seafood and pasta served up on the rooftop
Spice Thai – Trg Svetog Stjepana 30, Hvar
Tiring from all the seafood and pasta we dined outdoors in the main square at this amazing Thai restaurant.
