CROATIA: Carpe Diem
The Dalmatian Islands bring topless Italians atop yachts, hard-playing Croats, and a very few in-the-know Yanks. Hvar is the island known for the most hedonistic night—and day—life, and this port-side party palace is filled with hammocks, giant cushions, and taut bodies.
Velvet Rope Factor: Swimwear is the dress code; otherwise some kuna (the Croatian currency) and a smile are all you'll need.
In Good Company: Beautiful Croatian women and the suntanned Italians who love them.
Hey, Mr. DJ: In the afternoons, it's all jazz, baby. Things get funkier, louder, and more licentious later.
Sip on This: There is a fondness for fire at the bar; several cocktails—including a magnum of Champagne—come with sparklers.
When to Go: Before the party becomes more, uh, pronounced, grab a seat and catch the spectacular view as the sun goes down over the yacht-filled harbor, saturating the skies with sorbet colors.
