“Not a lot to do.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Because of the limited ferry schedule you are stuck on the island even if you have seen all you want to see. If you are looking to relax by the water and enjoy the sun, this is the place. Water is beautiful

“Rent scooter!!! explore the Island!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

In order to truly enjoy the Hvar Island, one must really explore beyond Hvar city. When i was there, i started to get a a feeling that i have seen everything there was to see already on the first day. With that, the next day I decided to rent a scooter and get lost (literally...). I spent a wonderful day exploring the island...It was truly one of my best experiences. Most of the roads are located just a couple feet from steep falls overlooking the water. I highly recommend doing the same. Make sure to pack up some lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing at your favorite spot which you will surely run into.

“Nice island to visit even out of season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

A lot of the hotels and activities were closed as we visited in early April, but there was still enough going on to make it a very worthwhile trip. Definitely take the gentile walk up to the fort for amazing views.

“BEST DESTINATION ON EARTH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I flew to Spilt to start my wonderful Croatian holiday. This Place is the best connection to Hvar islands. Hvar islands are like heaven on earth. My husband and me had a wonderful time here sailing to the pretty small islands around it. We rented a boat ourselves, took our swim suits and tanned ourselves in this sunny and heavenly destination. It is remarkably pleasant in June and is just the starting season. So there were not tooo many tourists and people around so we god a great deal of nice places to stay for cheap. We even met wonderful couple from London and we became great friends with them.The stretch from Split to Hvar to Dubvronik (hopping through the islands) is the great tour for the best of Croatia who loves the sea.

We staying at Villa Milton in Hvar island which was a superb place to stay. The owner Pero was a lovely person who even came to pick us up at the boat terminal when we arrived from Split.



A must see place before you die!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The Island of Hvar is beautiful... My friends and I had a wonderful time there...
If you are young and looking for fun, that is a great place to go... beautiful beach, nice people... parties!!! Excelent food! And you just have to try the local cachaça! OMG, that thing is strong!!!
Don´'t miss the sunrise at least once, and the sunset to... just gorgeus!!!
The water us crystal clear, take a boat trip, a walk around the island, a swim, and enjoy the history of the place...

I just loved it!!!
=)
