Opposite the island and town of Hvar, at a distance of only 2.5 nmi, lies Palmižana, a famous old haunt of Hvar residents. Hidden in one of the safest bays in the Adriatic, on a car-free island, Palmižana is the ideal retreat for all who wish to escape from the bustle of city life. At this popular boating destination you can experience a relaxed and carefree holiday in the unique atmosphere of harmony with nature. You can have dinner in an art gallery or botanical garden and enjoy Dalmatian cuisine, full of unmistakable flavours, while basking in the aromatic air of the Mediterranean. Rosemary, basil and lavender, cacti and assorted exotic plants make Palmižana a true natural paradise.
A walk along the island’s footpaths, in the pleasant breeze and with the fabulous view of Hvar glittering in the distance luring you with its abundant nightlife, will always stay in your memory. From swimming and hiking to kayaking, diving and surfing, Palmižana offers plenty of opportunities for an exciting holiday.
ACI Marina Palmižana, open from April to end of October, is one of the most beautiful marinas in the Adriatic. It is located in its namesake bay on the northeastern coast of Sv. Klement (St. Clement), the largest of the Pakleni Islands. The rest of the archipelago is also easily reached from here: from Palmižana you can set off to explore numerous hidden coves and isolated beaches which will leave you breathless.
Did you know…?
…that the town of Hvar has the oldest surviving public theatre in Europe. The theatre was established in 1612 during the tenure of Rector Pietro Semitecolo and its current Neo-Baroque appearance dates to the 19th century when the stage and auditorium with boxes were constructed, as were the still-surviving set designs.
…that in 2008 Hvar celebrated 140 years of organised tourism, an accomplishment very largely due to its being the sunniest Croatian island, with approximately 2,800 hours of sunshine a year.
