Island Hvar beaches
Beaches in Hvar islandThe beaches in Island of Hvar are generally rocky - pebble, situated in bays, surrounded by pine forests. There are also several natural sandy beaches, mostly on the north side of the island due to fact that north winds ("bura") and sea waves are stronger then south waves and wind ("jugo"). Pebbles in pebble beaches are also mostly smaller in the bays on the north side beaches, and therefore more suitable for children. The shallow sandy beaches in deep bays can be found near Jelsa, in bay "Mlaska" near Sucuraj on the north side, and exceptionally on the south side of the island in beach "Cesminica" in Sucuraj.
But wherever you go you may be sure you will find perfectly transparent, clean unpolluted sea !
