The Dalmatian coast is fast becoming the French Riviera of Eastern Europe and Hvar Town is its Cannes. The most obvious party spot is Carpe Diem at the end of Hvar Harbour. From Bellini breakfasts to late night tipples, there is no time of day that this famous bar doesn’t offer a party atmosphere. In the late afternoon “Blue Hour” meets the post-beach crowd with smooth jazz music and live bands, as the sun starts to set the DJs kick in transforming the relaxed bar into a vibrant club.

After midnight, you can take a short water taxi ride to its sister bar Carpe Diem Beach, set on the small island of Marinkovo. Hidden in the thick pine forests, it is the ultimate private venue made up of a labyrinth of secret bars and intimate dance floors.

For a cool and casual alternative, Hula Hula is a bohemian refuge perched along the rocky coastline on the west side of Hvar Town. The bar is known for its apres beach parties and carefully crafted cocktails, it is also the best place in the town to watch the sun descend into the Adriatic.

Where to berth: Hvar Harbour, one of the best anchorages in Croatia and where visitors such as 78 metre Venus, 70 metre Martha Ann and 50 metre Lumiere have dropped anchor in recent years, is right in the centre of Hvar Town, from here you can simply step from your superyacht and onto the marbled terrace of Carpe Diem.

A yachting hub on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast Göcek is fast gaining a reputation as one of the best party spots in the Mediterranean. A popular starting point for luxury yacht charters in Turkey and attracting some of the world’s largest yachts, this picturesque town comes alive during the summer months.

Göcek’s party reputation was further boosted last year by the opening of the Q Lounge as part of D-Resort Göcek. Designed by the architects of Zuma, this stunning treetop bar is the perfect place for a sundowner and also offers an exciting menu of contemporary Japanese cuisine. Open seven days a week (until late during the summer), Q lounge invites a selection of DJs transforming the relaxed vibe into full on party atmosphere later in the evenings.

Where to berth: D-Marin Göcek can accommodate yachts up to 70 metres or anchor out and tender in to the pier just below the Q Lounge.
