“Beautifull Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is Island for a great vacations, worth of every penny! Beautiful places to visit, for me the most beautiful is Starigrad and Hvar. Long bays, smaragd see, fresh see food and great wine and olive oil and lavander. Those are autentic Hvar's domestic products, need to try and buy them! This is the sunnyest Island on the world! Recommend to rent a boat around the Island, or renta a bike and drive through the wineyards and lavander fields, exeptional feeling!

“Beautiful Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

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 without any kind of adhesive product (see picture below).

Hvar boasts a spectacular number of sunny days a year, and is recognized as one of the most beautiful islands in the world.

“Two diverse weeks on Hvar island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

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 want to have more glamorous restaurants and shops I suggest you stay in Hvar, but do take a day trip to Stari Grad.

Stari Grad is a great jumping off point and I highly suggest that you walk through the Stari Grad plains which are filled with vineyards and olive grooves. If you are a little adventurous I suggest walking to Dol (you will see the large church on the hill), or walk right through the Plains to Vrboska or Jelsa.

If walking or hiking is not your thing the island is well equipped with a simple and inexpensive bus system to take you to any of these towns.

“Hvar island”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

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.
