By Jenny Wilson published on 12 March 2016

One of the main challenges with any sailing holiday is finding the perfect spot that combines great views and stunning scenery with the opportunity to swim or sunbathe. There are many lovely beaches around the various islands to explore with yacht hire in Croatia, and on the island of Hvar there is a real gem.

Lanterna Bruna is just a short ten-minute walk from the main town of Stari Grad. The curved pebbly beach is surrounded by a pine forest, which makes a charming route for a walk at any time but particularly if you fancy a gentle stroll to take in the evening air before dinner.

The beach itself is sunny and very clean, and the water is delightfully clear. There are ladders to help you access the water and a marked-off area to show where it is safe to swim, making this an ideal choice for those travelling with children. There are also some pleasant snorkelling spots around the sea-grass bed.

The real highlight, however, is the spectacular sunset. Widely regarded as offering the best view on the island of Hvar, Lanterna Bruna is ideally situated to watch this colourful spectacle. Enjoy a relaxing drink as the sun sinks below the horizon and the stars come out in the clear sky for a truly beautiful experience.
