Recommends: Activities in Hvar

hvar-beachbar

Following on from last month's epicurean tips, we share some of our favourite day activities with you. From ancient ruins to a luxury bathhouse, our team brings you a variety of ways to spend your leisure time on the island around FOR Festival in June.

Visit the local markets and stock up on artisan bread, Dalmatian prosciutto, the famous Croatian Paski cheese, fresh figs, olive oil, nougat and wine such as the Mali Plavac, then hop on a rented scooter and visit some of Hvar's popular beaches - Dubovica, Sveti Nedelja, Milna or Zarace for a fun (and utterly delicious!) take on a summer picnic.

At the top of Hvar Town sits an imposing ancient fortress. Dating from the 16th century, it is known as the Fortica. It's about a 15-20 minute walk from the northern part of Hvar town to the fort, where you can enjoy spectacular views across the island and coast. It will cost about €5 to gain entry and explore the majestic Fort and its history in the region. The Fort opening hours vary, so check with your hotel concierge, but in summer it's usually open 7am-12pm and 5pm-7pm, closing for the hot middle part of the day.

Have a spa treatment in a cabana by the sea, stretch out with morning yoga under the old pines or simply rent a daybed or sunbed followed by a few cocktails at Bonj les Bains. This gorgeous "bathhouse" is part of Hotel Amfora but anyone can visit and enjoy some sun and Adriatic sea in total luxury.
