We spent 2 days on this stunning island. It really is beautiful and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The water sparkles all day and everyone is very helpful! Just stunning!

Take the catamaran from Split to Hvar Town - about an hour or so, sometimes via Brac. Hvar Town is a delight - huge open square with restaurants: church one end, the harbour the other. Take the opportunity to climb up through the old town to the old fort at the top for spectacular views over the town, harbour and... More

Hvar island is so worth the trip of getting here. Water is crystal clear with lots of lovely beaches ( they are all pebble beaches). Huge yachts are lined up in the port all the time, there's a great nightlife, nice restaurants and cafés but still not overly packed with tourists. We had to extend our stay here it's so... More

The island is just beautiful with most of the countryside still as it was when the Greeks came to this part of the world. Hvar is now a popular spot but retains its charm and it's feeling of intimacy .the only draw back is the car ferry ferry service which is pathetic with no booking and long times spent wasted... More

This review is for MB Boat Hire ouside of Amfora Hotel in Hvar and the service offered by a particular man. Myself and 2 friends (all female) rented a boat for the day for 500 kuna, which we collected in the morning and went straight to Mlini Beach, spending about 30 mins using the boat. We then moored up and... More

The city is absolutely beautiful. We also went to the old town, on the other side of the island, but the other part was more worth it.

Having yesterday being in the lovely but very crowded city of Dubrovnik, it was such a pleasure today to visit the beautiful Adriatic Island of HVAR. Just as pretty in architecture as Dubrovnik but smaller with far less tourists and a spectacular harbour full of stunning (and very expensive) boats from all around the world. Apart from the usual shops... More
