Milna Island Hvar
Milna is a village located on the south side of the island of Hvar, distant around 5 kilometers from the town of Hvar. The place is quite known for the last name of its inhabitants (everyone's last name is Tudor – which stems from the name Teodor or Theodore). The beaches in Milna are extremely cozy and inviting, surrounded by bushes, agaves, vineyards and orchards. When you visit Milna bay, make sure to check out the neighboring bushy bays Malo and Veliko Borče.
This little village is one of the oldest Hvar tourist destinations and its countryside vibe is evident in the old 17th century summerhouse, which used to be owned by the noble family Ivanić. But don’t try and book an apartment in Milna by making reservation at the summerhouse because its there for sightseeing purposes only. Instead, look around for holiday villas in Milna that offer both apartments and rooms for rent. If you're more of a "concierge" type of person, we are sorry to say that there are no hotels but Hvar is full of them so have a look at what suits you best.
Transportation is organized by boat from the Hvar harbor. However, the place is accessible both by car and on foot. During your stay here, you'll probably wake up one night with a strong urge to attend a wild party. No worries, even though there aren’t any nightclubs, there are plenty in Hvar, so just drive over and enjoy the always-active nightlife. If your idea of fun is an active vacation, then check out the diving school in Milna, tennis courses or our all time favorite – donkey riding. The latter is probably the weirdest possible type of entertainment in Milna.
The beaches in Milna are mostly covered with gravel or pebbles, some of them are even 200m long and are rarely crowded or noisy. Some people book their apartment in Milna late in the summer, around September because they love the surrounding peace and quiet that this village provides them. Plus, the water is crystal clear; the beaches safe for young children and the villas are nice and tidy.
There are also a couple of restaurants. In fact, most of the restaurants in Milna are located on the beach itself and offer classical Dalmatian dishes prepared on the basis of traditional Croatian recipes. And, if you feel like exploring the rest of the islands, check out the excursions to the neighboring islands Vis, Biševo, Korčula or Mljet.
