DISCOVER BEACH KAMENJARA AND BOTA WIND SURF CENTER WITH ME!
My project of discovering the most beautiful beaches and bays on island Hvar and sharing them with you continues. This long and narrow sunny island is so diverse in its beauty that it never ceases to amaze me. It's like a little universe in itself. Trust me there are still moments when the beauty of island Hvar leaves me speechless. Today I'm happy to announce that I have found another magnificent beach to share with you. This beach is called Kamenjara ( kamen stands for rock in Croatian so basically it is a rocky terrain we're talking about). Kamenjara is located in immediate vicinity of Soline beach. Basically you just walk over to the other side of this peninsula and you'll be there in two minutes. While Soline beach offers a view of Vrboska village and Jelsa village, Kamenjara beach faces the other side and offers you a magnificent panorama of Croatian coastline and Brač island. There is also a wind surf center Bota if you're into water sports. I believe this wind surf center is open only during the warmer months as all the wind surfing gear was locked up when we visited yesterday. It was still a little cold to swim in the gorgeous Adriatic, but the sea sure looked tempting. However, there are only ten days to spring. Hopefully, spring will come quickly, put an end to horrible corona virus and then you can all come and visit this gorgeous beach.
As I explained fighting the temptation to throw myself into these pristine waters was hard, but I somehow managed by reminding myself that spring isn't too far away. The spot I liked best in this area is one right next to the wind surf center. There is a small pebble beach there and the entrance to the water is so beautiful. That is where I would love to come to sunbathe and swim. I love the rocks here, they are so flat and will be perfect for sunbathing. This peninsula is composed of mostly pebble and rocky beaches. It offers peace and quiet as well as gorgeous beaches. I have to say that I really like the ones I have seen so far. This one is truly gorgeous, I cannot wait to come back here. It is great for trekking as well. I don't know about you but I like nothing better than climbing stones. I grew up climbing rocks and walking on rocky terrains. I think that is where I get my sense of balance from. I love climbing rocky cliffs. It's a great work out as well. Trekking in vicinity of water is very relaxing and has many health benefits. It is definitely something I would recommend. If you're not sure you can balance on rocks, then just follow the established paths and pathways that are neared to forest.

HOW TO GET TO KAMENJARA BEACH AND WIND CENTER BOTA?
Getting there is quite easy. You can walk, cycle or drive there from Vrboska. Beach Kamenjara (like beach Soline) is located on peninsula that encloses Vrboska village. When you park near restaurant Soline (closed during the colder months), you will be able to see Soline beach. To find beach Kamenjara and wind surf center Bota all you need to do is follow the path in the opposite directions and you'll reach this place in less than two minutes on foot. There is also a nudist camp in vicinity. There is a wall separating the naturalist beach from this one (you can see in on the photograph). The naturalist beach is, I believe, open to visitors that aren't guests of the park. Do bring plenty of sunscreen if you plan to visit the naturalist beach because from what I've seen there isn't a lot of natural shade there. There is definitely more shade on the other beaches in the vicinity.
THE STORY OF MY OUTFIT & HOW I WORE IT BEFORE?
Everything in this outfit is quite old. I wanted to wear something comfortable but chic so I opted for a simple combo consisting of a neutral tight dress, a brown faux fur and leather coat, a pair of dad sneakers and a pair of printed tights. When your outfit is quite simple, then accessories can help. A pair of printed tights can always add something to the most basic of looks. Moreover, statement and printed tights are quite in at the moment.
THE GREY DRESS
I bought this dress a year or two ago in New Yorker. It is a cotton blend dress that has really come in handy on a number of occasions. This grey dress is so comfortable to wear and quite easy to style. I often wear it to work. You can see how I wore it in the past here, here, here and here.

THE STATEMENT TIGHTS
I don't remember where this printed pair of tights is from, but I think I had it for five years. You can see how I wore this pair of tights here, here and here.
