This is amazing place the guide was very knowledgable and loved nature so he made it that much better. We were a bit off season so our group was very small. This should be on everyone's bucket lust

I did a Euro trip last summer with some girlfriends and Hvar was by far our favourite stop in Europe. We are all in our mid to late twenties. We got an apartment in the centre of town, just a 2 minute walk from the pier. I would highly recommend staying in this area of the island, it's the nicest... More

Hvar Island is the largest of the Croatian isles. We got here early in the morning and took a bus ride along the old road that rises high up into the hills for beautiful views of the Adriatic and the surrounding area. Along the way you pass the miles and miles of stone irrigation and flood walls that were built... More

This island has so much to offer for any taste. I was based out of Stari Grad and I was very thankful for this as it has become one of my favourite places on earth as it moves at a slow pace to enjoy life and the ones around you. If you are one that likes to be seen and... More

It is a beautiful place but comparing to Korcula and other islands it is not much different. We liked Korcula better and stayed for a day. The prices are high as pointed out by other visitors and the restaurant prices are high too. It has pretty good beached but similar to other islands.

This exciting Croatian island has it all! From pretty beaches with the deep blue sea, to amazing surrounding islands (that you should rent a boat to visit them) and great nightlife! If you are planning a summer vacation, you can't miss it! Plan a 3 or more nights to it. It pleases single and married adults because nightlife has sunset... More

I was here in the summer and the place was flat out. There is a good buzz around the main square in the evenings and you can access smaller islands from it as well for some nice beaches. Prices are a bit high for the quality of food you can buy and accommodation is a bit high too. It is... More

I love this island! Especially if you are looking to party, you are on the right place! However, it can be expensive (high season-july and august) so prepare to pay bit more for accommodation and food. If you are that type of traveler, I'd recommend to sleep in a hostel
