If ever in Split take a boat trip to Hvar (Island and a city). Historic premisses in a pocket size scale. Still a cosmopolitan feel with a layd back touch. Nice restaurants and cafes and of course the ancient fortress and a church. Go.

I only visited Hvar on a day trip from Split and so want to return and spend a week or so. It is beautiful and I long to check out all of the inviting shops and local art galleries and restaurants that I saw. The views are spectacular and I love the ambience.

A lovely island infamous for healing properties and lavender - it still has the feel good factor of relaxation, lovely people and rich vegetation. A must for any trip to the Asriatic ...

Beautiful! Spectacular! Amazing! Are the words I can think of for Hvar. The view is mesmerising from the Napoleon point. Visited the castle. Lovely view from top. There is nothing in the castle but for the view.

I took a day excursion from Brac to Hvar Town, and I'm afraid I found it a little disappointing and underwhelming - I will qualify that though by adding that I think my expectations were set very high by the hype around the island, and I also believe that the short time spent there on a day trip doesnt do...

Hvar town is beautiful. Free of cars, in a nice sheltered port, typical architecture all dominated by the Spanjola fort at the top of the hill. A beautiful place to wander, owduse their shops with tasteful local arts and enjoy local food specialties. Too good to miss.

Great nature, amazing sea. Great place for romantic vacation. If you're looking for a night life - definitely Zavala is not your place

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

Our family just returned from a 10 day tour of Croatia. We found the cities on the mainland - Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik - to be very interesting. But I must say we enjoyed our time on Hvar Island them most. It was just beautiful. While on the island we stayed in Hvar Town and hired a great local guide... More
