hvar or makarska
what is a better place for a "family" vacation 2 adults and a baby. we are thinking of choosing makarska or hvar. we like a nice area much things to do nice terraces restaurants shops. beautifull area.
is hvar to much party in june for 2 adults and a baby? We love to relax lounge with the baby but no crazy parties. we do not want to stay in a boring place.
Re: hvar or makarska
In June,Hvar doesn not have too much party.You can go to Hvar with baby.That is nice island and if you get boring,just catch the boat and go to Split or some of near other island.
Re: hvar or makarska
In June there isn't much going on anywhere on the Adriatic, except some local cultural events.
Makarska has great beaches, but much less of shopping, restaurants etc than Hvar.
On the other hand Hvar town doesn't have such nice beaches (going to Palmizana - Paklini islands with taxi boat would be my advice, lovely beaches just a short walk across that small island). But Hvar does have lots of lovely bars, restaurants and shops, exploring those narrow streets and discovering bars/restaurants on rooftops and terraces would keep you busy and amused. Also a hike up to the fortress isn't too demanding, especially in June when the weather isn't too hot.
Travel Tips for Hvar
The Arsenal building used to be a storage of ammunition and crops since 14th century. In the early 17th century, local authorities decided to open a theater on the upper level of the building, mainly because Venice had shifted it's mail military base to Kotor.
After The Golden Age of Hvar's community in 15th and 16th century, marked both by lyrical and social turmoil, wise Venetian Petar Semitecolo, the governor of Hvar at the time, decided in 1611 to refurbish that space into theater.
The theater was completed in
ANNO SEVNDO PACIS MDCXII
It was the first public theater in Europe - open to general public, all citizens of Hvar.
Travel light. You'll be happy when you are carting your bags off ferries and buses. Take light weight clothes that dry quickly. Good walking shoes and waterproof sandels are the best. Take prescription medicines , and sunscreen. There is a little general store but its limited. Don't forget your converter !!
During our "safari" trip we visited Grapceva cave, a hidden well preserved cave with interesting history - archaeologists have discovered that this cave was not inhabited, but was used as a place of worship.
Interesting "sculptures" of stalactites/stalagmites, no wonder people found deeper meaning in their magical forms.
The guide was a bit clumsy and brought only two lamps so we had to walk very carefully, so bring your lamps if you want to see the whole interior.
Soon they plan to bring electricity and illuminate the cave properly, but that has to be done carefully in order to save the fragile habitat of bats and other tiny creatures and organisms living here.
Entrance fee 30 Kunas per person.
Beautiful bay of Jagodna is situated on the southern side of the island, at the foot of Sveti Nikola (the highest peak on the island, between Sveta Nedjelja and Ivan Dolac. To get to this hidden bay we drove through a nice pine tree forest until we came to the campsite. Here we left the car and took a short walk down to the beach.
If you are looking for more peaceful and relaxed surroundings and wish to enjoy the beauty of untouched nature, Jagodna is the place for you. It's a small settlement of only a few houses with a dock for small boats, and it offers one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. If you want to swim in turquoise sea, enjoy the sunset and fall a sleep listening to the sound of the sea, it's all here. The place is also ideal for anyone who enjoys hiking, free climbing and surfing, and the crystal clear sea is perfect for diving. The nearest shop for grocery is in Sveta Nedjelja and Ivan Dolac, some 3 km away.
The island of Hvar boasts many stunning quiet bays and beaches but Jagodna was somehow my favourite. It has just everything I'd need for a perfect holidays by the sea.
What shall we eat?
Good food (or "spiza" as the locals say) is an integral part of the Hvar tradition. Healthy, light, mostly boiled food (chiefly fish), seasoned with home-made olive oil and a pinch of herbs which grow wild everywhere, helped down with good wine - this is why the people of Hvar are so healthy and long-lived!
What to eat:
Hvar restaurants offer a wide choice of dishes, from the typical tourist menus to a variety of local specialities. As you are here, we urge you to taste some of the local specialities:
- goat's cheese in olive oil
- very healthy and tasty wild cabbage
- wild cabbage salad
- "Gregada" - a typical Hvar dish of several kinds of fish, boiled with potatoes
- "Peèica na teèicu" - fresh goat's cheese fried with sugar
- "Rožada" - a juicy egg and milk pudding
- home-made "prošek" (similar to sherry) - for better circulation
