Palmizana

Palmizana marina lies in a natural harbour on Sveti Klement, one of the archipelago of eleven small wooded islands that lie to the west of Hvar Town on the island of the same name. Palmizana is a good base from which to visit Hvar as the two harbours are linked by water taxi. It is an attractive bay with a tiny crescent-shaped, sandy beach perfect for a swim and a paddle above which sits a small hamlet with a restaurant that serves some excellent grilled fish.

Hvar is an idyllic Adriatic island and Hvar Town has a charming, Italianate feel – it was governed by the Venetian doge in the 13th century. In summer, the air on Hvar is filled with the scent of the lavender that grows in abundance and the pretty Baroque-style harbour of Hvar Town bustles with fashionable visitors. It’s a medieval town of narrow alleys overlooked by ancient stone houses and has a certain elegance about it – during the early evening in particular there’s a lot of seeing and being seen, with most of the activity centring on the cafes in the main square and around the yacht-filled harbour. Sights worth investigating include the seventeenth century Venetian arsenal, St Stephen’s Cathedral and the collection of religious artefacts in the Bishop’s Treasury.

In the Old Town – known as Groda – are more churches and a striking roofless palace and above town on the hill sits the Citadel. The view from the ramparts is stunning. If your Palmizana yacht charter coincides with the Summer Festival that runs from June to September you will be able to catch some of the 120 chamber concerts that take place in the historic churches and monastery courtyards of the town. Hvar has plenty of restaurants – some of them excellent. Be sure to try the local specialty of gregada – a stew of fish in white wine. And if you’re still in the mood for action after dinner, several of the local bars organise events with out-of-town DJs on beaches and nearby islands, with boat-taxis laid on for revellers.
