Hvar - Bonj among 20 most Beautiful Beaches in Europe
The British internet site Timesonline.co.uk has chosen among the elite company of Europe's 20 most beautiful beaches one Croatian beach – Bonj on Hvar, «Les Bains».

This Croatian beauty is described as a «supercool beach club» on «the most trendy» Croatian island, offering an amazing view of the nearby Pakleni islands. Deck chairs and parasols can be rented at the beach, located in close proximity to an aromatic pine tree forest. Bonj is not about the sand, but all about the views it offers. You can enter the turquoise sea of the Amfora bay right from out of your chair, say the authors of the text, pointing out that not even the fashion designer Giorgio Armani or the Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey could resist the beauties of Hvar.

The site recommends Bonj to all stars and to all those like to observe the stars in the sky.

The most beautiful beach, according to the site, is Plage Conguel in Brittany, followed by three beaches in the Provance: Languedoc, Collioure and Piemanson, Palombaggia on Korsica and Las Salinas on Ibiza. The most beaches on the list are located in Spain.

Bonj was ranked 13th among the elite European beauties.

Bonj is a beach that is part of the hotel company «Sunčani Hvar», and is considered an architectural pearl that was built between 1927 and 1931, designed the Hvar architect Silvije Sponza (1889-1960).

The stone cabins offer a private place for relaxation or drowsing. Visitors can enjoy refreshing drinks on the bar terrace on the first floor or delicious snacks in the bar next to the sea. Bonj features two private tents for professional massages and showers, deck-chairs and pontoons – all in all, a unique experience.

In order to make it one of the most well known beaches and clubs in the Adriatic, Sunčani Hvar, after years of squalor, invested in Bonj as much as 16 million HRK in 2006/2007. The swimming area is today part of the hotel «Adriana», and part of the beach Vela plaža of the hotel «Amfora». Bonj is proud to have been awarded with the Blue Flag for the third year in a row, and was officially proclaimed the best Croatian beach last year.

Like Bonj, Hvar has also recently received a prestigious recognition, having been ranked as one of the best party destinations in the world by the website Huffington Post. With the explanation that it is probably the least familiar name on the list featuring the best world tourist destinations, the article points out that this «beautiful town on the Croatian coast's reputation has skyrocketed in recent year, and is said to be the best place to go in the Adriatic».

On the list, Hvar is in the prestigious company of well-known destinations such as Las Vegas, Saint-Tropez, Ibiza, Rio de Janeiro and Berlin, and the website recommends it as one of the best destinations to visit in 2010 to all those who like to have fun.
