Where to stay in Hvar in August

We are a famly of 4 (2 young teens) and are considering 5 days in Hvar. We like relaxing quiet days, walking, nature and a bit of sightseeing, but at night we want somewhere with plenty of restaurants and a lively atmosphere. I've read that Hvar in August is a major party haven. Is this true? If we are not fans of clubbing/beach parties should we avoid Hvar and head to somewhere like Brac or is the August party scene mostly limited to Hvar town.

Also, how expensive is Hvar for eating out compared with the rest of Croatia?

Party scene is limited to Hvar town so if you would like quite vacation avoid Hvar town and look for some other place on the island from you can easily visit Hvar town for a day (maybe Jelsa as djemi said).

Hvar and Dubrovnik are the more expensive places, and August is the most expensive time of year. I would consider another town--I passed through Jelsa, and it seemed very laid back. Maybe Stari Grad would be a good choice also. With a car on any island, you will be able to get to the best secluded nature spots. You are right, it is finding the best town for dining out that is the challenge!

I would not consider Bol on Brac, but maybe Milna would be nice.

Agree on Jelsa (have lived there for 10 years). Very laid back place, about 20 plus restaurants in the season, the most relaxed square on the island, great beaches within walking distance, good base to explore the rest of the island (plus day trip to Bol), and prices much cheaper than Hvar Town.
