Dubovica, Hvar

4.7
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Hvar Island
More than just a beach, Dubovica sits nestled in a cove surrounded by hills and features an 18th-century countryside house on a rock above the sea. Nature and antiquity meld into one, making this bay one of the most photographed ones in Croatia. You can swim in the clear waters, sheltered from the wind in this cove. The steep drop off makes this a good spot for distance swimming, and the beachfront features smooth stones and pebbles.

  • Beautiful sea in a secluded Bay. You will find a bar and restaurant so you can not bring food and water (of course don't expect supermarket prices but not insane prices). The bar is very nice and you can relax in the shade of the trees at two steps from the water. The path that connects the beach to the road is slightly challenging (more uphill because it's a bit steep) but nothing that can't be done because it is not very long. Recommend sea shoes like all beaches in Croatia.

Where to stay in Hvar

The island of Hvar caters to well-heeled travelers, so expect high prices and few bargain beds near the sea, especially at peak season. Stari Grad and Hvar Town draw the biggest crowds, though neither town offers budget-friendly hotels. Don't be put off by this, as you can find modestly priced accommodations in the form of private apartments rented by local families. If you've come to Hvar to splurge, check out the island's luxury hotels, with airy rooms, sea views, and access to private beaches.
