==== HVAR - ATTRACTION
Tourists are attracted by a visit to the Pakleni Islands - A small archipelago in front of the Hvar port, where one may enjoy the sun and the sea in one of the many solitary, wooded coves. Restaurants and taverns on the island offer excellent fish specialties, with exquisite local wines.
Outside the main port town, one will find an exquisite source of natural, unspoilt beauty and sleepy villages with lots of hidden treasures waiting to be discovered.
One such place is the village of Dol, located 15 minutes by scooter/car from Hvar and only 5 minutes from Stari Grad, oldest & central port town on the island. Dol is home to suncokret retreat center for body & soul, as well as a painters' atelier with mystical summer courtyard - open to the public for t-shirt painting or simply a soothing glass of home-made mint tea. There is also Konoba Kokot, a quaint family restaurant which serves home-grown, organically produced local specialties in a friendly domestic environment at very reasonable prices.
In Hvar accommodation facilities include hotels, guest houses, apartments, boarding houses and campsites. Sports and recreational opportunities are excellent - beach yoga, safari tours, tennis, climbing, hiking, basketball, boccia & water sports... and many more.
