FKK Camping on Hvar: Large Increase for 2013

By paul 27 Jul 2013, 09:24 AM What's On This Month?

One area where tourism is booming on Hvar is FKK camping in Vrboska. 

It has been a strange season for tourism statistics. Depending on who you talk to, it is a record season or a very quiet one. Hvar Town in June was busier than most Augusts, according to many restaurant owners, Stari Grad much quieter despite an official increase of 30%.

One section of accommodation which has quietly been doing rather well this year is FKK camping in Vrboska, where the director told me over a cold one recently that occupancy is up an impressive 20% on last year. This is also true for the more mainstream Camp Mina in Jelsa, one of the island's more popular camps, given its proximity to the catamaran by foot. 

The tradition of FKK camping on Hvar is well-established, and nobody does it better than Kamp Nudist in Vrboska, discreetly hidden away in the pine trees with accompanying naturist beach about 1km out of town - a lovely location.

From Croatia with Madness

Croatia Traffic Info

  • At the moment there are no serious traffic delays in the country. Occasional hold-ups are possible in the areas of roadworks and along the Adriatic costal road. Traffic is heavy on most of the roads leading towards the coast and towards the interior of the country, especially on the motorways (A1 Zagreb-Split-Ploče, A2 Zagreb-Macelj, A3 Bregana-Lipovac and A6 Rijeka-Zagreb), on the roads in Istria, on the Rijeka and Zagreb bypass roads, on the state road Karlovac-Knin-Sinj, on some sections of the Adriatic coastal road (Omiš-Split!), on the island of Krk and on the Krk bridge, in most of the ferry ports and at most of the border crossings. Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -the DC29 from Novi Golubovec (DC29, DC35) -the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road -ŽC5042 Višnjan-Tićan. Traffic is regulated by traffic signals/one road lane is free only: -on the DC1 state road in Knin, on the section Sučević-Otrić in Otrić -on the state road DC2 in Vukovar, (Kudeljarska and Priljevo street) -on the state road DC66 Pula- Raša bridge -on the state road DC206 Valentinovo-Petrovsko. With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
