Hvar island - Milna & Dubovica beaches

Dubovica beach

Milna beach

Located just off the Dalmatian coast and perfumed by the scent of lavender, Hvar is one of the most hyped and beautiful of all the Croatian islands and has been a favorite getaway ever since the Romans.
Southern coast of the island is full with perfect little pebbly bays. It is a favorite destination for many swimmers and sunbathers from Hvar town. Beaches can be reached by the road from Hvar or you can take the boat service regularly operating during Summer from Hvar's harbor. Obviously those beaches closer to Hvar town (Milna, Dubovica) are more popular, and those a bit further - like Zavala and Sveta Nedjelja - are more peaceful and relaxed.
Milna is a small village, 4 km south-east from Hvar town with which is connected by a street road. There is an organized transportation by boat from Hvar port. The boat drive takes about 25 minutes. It is also reachable by car, bus or foot.
Milna is blessed with four lagoon-shaped beaches surrounded by a woody and gentle coast where pine-trees, agaves, vineyards and orchards overgrow. Two beaches are situated in the village itself and two in its immediate vicinity. Beaches are pebbly and forest between them is offering nice shade. Orientation to the south provides protection from northern winds and the sea is warm and crystal clear.
The largest beach on the southern coast of the island is Dubovica, located 4 km east of Milna. Again it has a lagoon-like shape. The beach is made of white pebbles and it has beautiful submarine scenery. At one side of the beach there is a small village with just a small church and several stone houses. In one of them there is (sort of) a restaurant. The beach is so beautiful it is hard to resist not to dive into the blue waters and have a swim. Like Mlini, you can reach it by a boat, bus or car.
Between Milna and Dubovica, another beach has found its place. There is a long lagoon with a wide pebble beach beneath a small, abandoned village of Zarace, situated on the very top of rocky cliff.
