If you've been to Europe, you know that it has some of the best beaches in the world, especially hidden gems. If you've made it all the way over to Croatia, you know that the people are kind, the food is fantastic, your money goes a long way, and it has some of the most beautiful beaches that are not...

The day we hired a guy to drive us around in a smaller boat was a little windy and the waves were bigger than I would have preferred. However, I had traveled all the way to Vis and had to see this place based on the pictures. It was very beautiful and charming, but of course, more crowded than when... More

cave itself is beautiful,real paradise. Only problem is the unreacible farnest. You have to hike for 30min by mountain. Sneekers and water necessary. Definetly something see and expirience.

Hiked there mid-September, and was barely crowded. Many people went by the boat tours, and some by hiking down the cliff. There's parking spots at the top of the cliff, but the hike down will take 20-30minutes depending on your hiking skill level. Some areas are steeper than others, with small rocks on the paths that roll under your feet... More

We visited this beach in the final leg of our Three Caves Tour with Ilirio's Hvar Tours. It was in the afternoon so it was not very busy. Make sure you wear footwear as the pebbles do hurt your feet! You have been warned!

This is the most beautiful beach we encountered. With a toddler, we couldn't take the mountain hike down, but discovered that boats can take you there. Once there, a small boat using a guide line from the shore can ferry noon swimming occupants. The swim itself is easy. The beach is flanked by tall cliffs, so there's one side always... More

I would not recommend going on foot ! You will need more than half an hour on foot to get to the beach.

Really romantic and cosy beach if you come late. Wear SPORT SCHUES, not flipflops cause path to the beach is rocky and slippery.

Crowded tiny beach surrounded by boats, and quite the sunny hike in (20 mins, steep) if you're not coming in on one of those boats. There's much nicer to be found (try one of the nude beaches!) for far less effort if you prefer a little seclusion :)

Certainly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Requires a pretty long and steep hike down and back uphill unless you can come with a boat. But come very early in high season because by noon it's packed and no longer so pleasant.
