i like nature in island Hvar,you can go there for swimming,exploring beaches,bicycle rides and lot more...City Hvar is beautiful but overpriced.I think that locals should offer more to tourists than just sun and sea because there is almost no nightlife except city Hvar and some periodical local celebrations.

It's an expensive island (in comparison), but absolutely gorgeous. Several tips: Camping can be found in Jelsa I was told... also Starigrad has a camp site, but I haven't stayed there either.

Although small, there were many beaches in the area which filtered the tourist population. The island had a variety of shops and restaurants available with both high and low prices. Lovely, beautiful place with things to do for... More
