Currency Conversion


Hvar island is exactly what it says on the tin – the biggest party destination on the Dalmatian coast! It’s scenic, relaxed and great fun. It’s relatively pricey for the region, but it’s a wonderful place to hang out for a few days. On that note, there is absolutely no point in coming here outside the June to mid-September window.

The Girls

Rare but most fair

The local population here is insignificant, but girls from all over come the island to let loose.  Self-proclaimed zen travelers would hate this place, but for us naughty nomads it’s a fucking goldmine. Italians, Scandinavians, English, Irish, Aussies, North Americans & Eastern Europeans are all the menu. There is also a few models that come in on the yachts. Croatian girls are also present, but they are the minority. Go to Northern Croatia or Split if you’re determined to get a local honey. There is no particular Croatian “look” but in general the girls are tall and dress really well. They’re also a little more curvy compared to other Eastern Europeans. But back on getting laid… Don’t bother with day game, there is plenty of options at night. Separate yourself from the crowd, peacock a little. Standard rules apply, get your energy levels pumping for a ton of approaches. Give yourself a few days and you will leave here with a big smile on your face.

Nightlife Recommendations

Carpe Diem in Peak season

Carpe Diem

The undisputed heavyweight in town. Good layout and great cocktails, but expensive. It’s a bit snobbish but nonetheless attracts a lot of talent.


A lot less pretentious than Carpe Diem, and smaller. Personally, I prefer this place. If you want to pick up some local Croatians, this bar is much better. Furthermore, it has a real party atmosphere and outside is perfect for chatting up strangers. Make sure you order a “helmet” for the criac.


When everywhere else closes, this club is just getting started. This place is seriously impressive. In September is was like a hermit’s house party, but in peak season this place is electric. You will undoubtedly end up here, this is were all the nubile singles end up. Go get em!

Getting High (courtesy of

Nomad’s input: Get it in Split before you hit Hvar. We got sorted out by some local girls there. Everyone goes to a beach called “the fuckadrome” to smoke.

Legislation: Illegal. Cultivating, selling and owning.
THC related products are illegal in Croatia and they are equal to harder drugs by the law.

Law enforcement: Cops got to deal with other issues in Croatia. At home, nothing will happen. Outside, be a bit more careful.( Don’t go around trying to make everyone see you’re high or something.) From news coverage and general statements from police etc., you can obtain that the cops are more worried about the big dealers rather than the smaller consumers.

Where to buy marijuana: This is the problem. Do NOT walk up to any guy that looks like a gangster/pusher or anything, you might well end up being robbed. Best thing is just asking someone you know or you’ve had to do with.

Marijuana prices: Not as low as in India or something, but if you have to pay as much as in the US or Western Europe, you’re being ripped off.

More information: It is unlikely that you’re offered hash, and if you are, chances are that it sucks ass. Marijuana is what you wanna go with in Croatia. If you got the choice, reject hash.

My Hvar Experience

I was here 3 nights with 3 other amigos during the Siege of the Adriatic. The first night it was buzzin’, but the other two nights it was dead. It was the end of September and the place was on its last legs. Nonetheless, I was on form and managed to take down two hotties and get two new flags. One was a sexy Cypriot Aussie in Veneranda (where the ratio was easily 80% male I might add). Quite a feat, but that was nothing compared to the last night. No shit, there was only 4 women out and at least 50 guys. Bottom line, I went home with the hottest girl there; a testament to Mystery peacocking theory. She was a smoking hot Welsh naturalist who currently lives in a nudist community, nice. I make it sound like I’m Mr. Smooth, but it was actually quite a challenge so if you don’t mind “toot toot”. As for my amigos, during the course of the 3 days, two of them pillaged a pair of lassies eager for some pirate lovin’. All in all, Hvar left a most favourable impression and gets the big thumbs up! If one was to return, it would certainly not be on the fringes of peak season but rather in the thick of the action in July. Head my words and enjoy!

    Hey Naughty Nomad, thanks for your guide on Hvar. Went there with two friends this summer and it was greatest place I’ve ever been too. Make sure you’ll go there in the first half of July, the atmosphere is best at that time. Great food, great people and great weather. And above all, more girls than men and they are pretty damn cute. So, again thanks for giving us the idea to go there and keep up the good work.

      No problem. Glad to hear you liked it 🙂

    About weed,the reason not to approach the “criminal bald headed looking” guys is not that you can get robbed,there are almost no robberies in Croatia,but you have more chance that those guys are undercover cops.You can easily score weed from skaters,rasta looking,punk or hardrocker looking guys or students.The all smoke weed.Or if you’re in some hotel and become good friends with the receprtionist or a owner of some small hotel/restorant.

    -Naughty Nomad has some Great Reviews on Hvar night clubs.

    I am presently in Hvar for 4 more days. I was in Dubrovnik for 3 days last week. I would like to add some info and my experience of my night spend at “Revelin” night clubin Dubrovnik. Great music, atmosphere its in an old castle/fort. The music isn’t so loud you can’t chat up girls. I highly recommend “Revelin” night club. 50 Kn ($10) cover, beer is 20 Kn ($4), cocktails are 40 to 50 Kn ($8 to $10). I always tipped the bartenders (5 Kn 1$) and this ensured the bartenders actually would be lworking for me, I never had to wait more than 10 seconds to order.

    Tipping in Croatia even a small amount works wonders. This was my first trip to Europe, I’ve travelled to most areas in Canada, USA, and the Carribean so this wasn’t too much of a price shocker. In Canada drinks where I live are $2.50 to $5.50 Can with usually a 1$ tip that does shit all for you.

    Went on a Friday night (middle of Sept and by 1AM it was nice and busy. Not packed, but just right. More girls than guys I’d say a 50/50 split of Croatians to Tourists. I was by myself this night. Shortly after I arrived, 5 girls from Belgium came in (prob 19-21 yrs old. I never asked the ages (I’m 23), and they all dressed similar (white strapless). The one girl (who seemed to be the Alpha of the group) was the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. About 5’8″ real blonde hair, turqouise eyes perfect facial structure, bubbly personality and that irrisistable Belgian accent. So about 30 minutes after they roll in, I’m just enjoying my Cuba Libre and this girl comes and grabs me by the back of the shirt… It’s the girl! I’ve dated models and good looking girls, but nothing like this, so she starts taking all these pics with me. End up buying her a drink, which was a big deal (do ppl not by drinks for girls in Belgium?) So dance with her and her friends….. I am thinking to myself, there is no way I am taking this sweet heart home tonight… wrong. I tell her I’m gonna head home, she rounds up all her girls, we all walk back to their hostel, She promises her friends she’ll be alright, I do the same, walk her out of the old fortified town, 5 minutes to my rental house… Had the “best night of my life/amont of effort+$ spent. Never met a girl who appreciated the time we spent, as polite, sociable, better looking, and interesting. Amazing in the bedroom. Had coffee and baking and the bakery below us in the morning and walked her back, and exchanged info with both of us wanting to keep in touch.

    So my first European Club experience was a success, Croatia has been lovely so far, and I’m gonna have a flag that I guarantee non of my buddy’s have back home in Canada!

      Hi Joe,

    Hey man. sweet blog. me and a few bros are thinking of heading to either hvar or pag in croatia in august this year. we’re from new jersey in usa.

    We just have a few concerns on hvar from what we’ve heard: 1) ratio of cock? 2) slightly pretentious? 3) expensive? and 4) girls here not too fluent in english?

    What do you think about these 4 concerns, and with them in mind do you think Pag may be a better option for a week holiday. Would love to get your thoughts man?

    While A little naughty fun will help boost my ego and give me confidence. My goal is to get married, Hvar Island, Nope not for me sounds like fun though wish I knew about 10 years ago. 43 now trying to meet the one but failing miserably in the USA

    I have not been to Hvar island yet, but here is my take on Split after two nights
    1) Adriatic Hostel : Good location, great to meet people (women staying there 🙂 )
    They don’t care if you bring women to the dorm as long as she leaves before 8
    $33 a night

    2) Airbnb
    Took this apartment right on top of a popular crowded bar for $36 inside the walled city
    You can probably go downstairs and pull them right up.

    3) Good isolation location for day game…sun beds by the beach..locals use them,
    4) August is the worst time, June is the best (both cheap and not too crowded)

      Hi Naughty Nomad, I plan on coming to eastern europe during European fall/winter. I know it wont be as busy but is there still a decent atmosphere or will it be completely dead and lifeless?
