Hvar - Playground of the Rich and Famous

Over the past few years, Hvar has become the ultimate playground for the rich and famous, attracting celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey and Eva Longoria who celebrated her wedding anniversary with husband, Tony Parker.

These days, it wouldn’t be unusual to see Sharon Stone or Paris Hilton sipping a mojito in one of Hvar’s trendy harbor front bars. Celebrities like to visit Hvar because they are left alone. Bill Gates and Clint Eastwood sail in on their yachts and no one pays any attention. No one cares. There are no paparazzi, no fans, and no autographs.

It is rumored that James Bond actor, Daniel Craig visited the island of Hvar in 2005 after filming scenes for Casino Royale in Serbia and Montenegro. George Clooney has also returned to the island after his first visit in 2004 while filming Oceans Twelve.

Hvar also attracts Royalty every year;. Princess Caroline of Monaco and the Saudi Royal Family are also rumored to spend their summers on the island or anchored in one of many harbors on their luxurious yachts.

In August 2010, Formula 1 CEO, Bernie Ecclestone hosted a VIP party on his yacht in Hvar’s Harbor. Guests included Formula 1 World Champion, Michael Schumacher, Italian designer, Valentino and billionaire, Roman Abramovich.
