The Island of Hvar is made up of several beaches. Through the guide, I was able to learn about the features of the various beaches. I toured six of the ten beaches and they were really beautiful. The beaches were really clean and they had different activities. I had a relaxing moment touring this beaches.
A walk on the pebbled beach of Banj was a source of inspiration for me.The beach minded about the people with disabilities by providing the beach matts and wheelchairs which makes it suitable for the people with disabilities as stated in the guide. This is one of my unforgettable moments.
