My impressions of Baska Voda

I can say Baska Voda is a small, beautiful, and intimate place. Its beauty lies in soothes which is hard to describe in words, but can be easily felt while being there. You can feel a true Mediterranean atmosphere.
Additionally, Baska Voda features many attractive pebble beaches. They are even more beautiful during the late afternoon when the sun goes down. I enjoyed one of the most beautiful sunsets in Baska Voda.
Early evenings are also pleasurable. Couples, friends and families are enjoying walks along the sea. Some of them sit in one of the numerous bars and restaurants. Few of them organize live music events.

Baska Voda facilities

Baska Voda features all necessary tourist facilities. There are numerous bars and restaurants, offering all kinds of food. You can eat commonly known food like pizza, spaghetti, meat, hamburgers, or you can taste Mediterranean specialities. Every few hundred meters there is an ice cream shop with various aromas. Price for ice cream is around 1 euro. Price for a coffee in the average bar is between 1.5-2 euros.
Numerous tourist agencies organize day tours to Hvar (Bol) or Blue Cave at Bisevo.
Parking price in Baska Voda is 2.5 euros/hour or 33 euros/day. It's a little bit higher than the average price for parking. My guess is that local governments want to avoid crowds and keep the intimacy of the place. That's why they put so high parking prices. But anyway, Baska Voda gets crowded during high season months July and August. I recommend visiting in June or September to fully enjoy the beauty of the place.
