Resorts on south side of the island
We begin our walk through Hvar resorts in lagoons on the south side of the island, east of city of Hvar. All lagoons are expressly sunny, which gives them special atmosphere and all are surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards.
Mekićevica is situated in a Hvar’s immediate proximity (only 2.5km east of city). It has two pebble beaches and white rock beach (“Bilo punta”), ideal for those who want to enjoy the harshness of Hvar’s sun.
There is a restaurant. Lagoon can be accessed by boat or by foot.
Milna is situated 4 km east of city of Hvar. There are two pebble beaches, and a woody and gentle coast where pine-trees, agaves, vineyards and orchards overgrow. Next to Milna lagoon there are two other woody lagoons; Malo and Veliko Borče.
Milna is one the oldest Hvar resorts, established at the very beginnings of tourism in Hvar, and its particularly country atmosphere is punctuated by an old villa of the noble family Ivanić (today owned by family Božić-Fio) from 17th century.
There are several restaurants in Milna.
There is an organised transportation by boat from Hvar port, and it is also reachable by car or foot.
There is a long lagoon with a wide pebble beach beneath a small, abandoned village of Zaraće, situated on the very top of rocky cliff resembling a pirates' stronghold. We point out to the lovers of deep waters that in these parts of Hvar picturesque submarine scenery is found. There are several restaurants. Zaraće can be accessed by boat or car.
A favourite Hvar resort, situated 8 km east of city, with large pebble beach and beautiful submarine scenery. Like Milna, Dubovica has a long pastoral tradition, too. There is a restaurant. Dubovica can be accessed by boat or car.
