Hvar is one of the most beautiful Croatian islands. The water here is crystal clear (not kidding) and the beaches are great for children, fun and relaxing. I've been here 2 weeks and I could stay even longer. If you want to know how great this place is, I can tell you that I've got family friends who go to... More

We leave Split on the ferry to the island of Hvar. Its night time and seats are taken by a combo of tourists and Hvar-ians returning from a week-end in Split. Cans of beer are ripped open and long-suffering waitresses are chatted up. Landed, we find that what catches our fancy is the smell of the place. Like a slice... More

Definitely the most beautiful island on the Croatian coast. You have to visit it. No matter what it was out of summer season, it was sunny and warm

I absolutely love this beautiful island. When approaching the island, you will see a beautiful scenery. The coast is amazing, you can see nice houses over hills covered with beautiful purple flowers all over. You can sit in one of the many cafes along harbor. It's very lovely. And the nature is just simply beautiful. I recommend this place for... More

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.

Such a beautiful place, romantic during the evening.. Good for treaking. Nature is preserved, beaches are wild ... I did a tiny road trip in Hvar. Beautiful alleys behind the Church of Saint John...
