Hvar or Korcula

Have a small amount of time and would like to see both Hvar and Korcula islands but spend a bit longer at one of them, which is best?

I don't think you can go wrong with either. If you want a more active place then go to Hvar. If you want a more peaceful place then go to Korcula. If you want great beauty then it doesn't matter because both of them fit that category.

Depends if you want more "quiet"...I would say that, if anything, Korcula is a bit more laid back. You would not be disappointed with either however...that is the only thing I would maybe take into consideration....good luck and have a great trip!

Well of course infobol is going to promote Bol, but I am not saying that he is wrong about how nice this place is. But maybe stick to Hvar and Korcula on this trip and then go to Brac next time you are in Croatia!!

If you are younger, go to Bol or Hvar...If not the case...go to Korcula. Korcula is not such a party destination...

Good question!

We just spent three weeks in Croatia and had to make that decision. It's like deciding between visiting a great museum or gallery (Korcula) or South Beach in Miami or Cannes in France (Hvar).

We liked Korcula for its historical and architectural significance. The entire town is the way it was 400 years ago with a few nice restaurants and shops.

We liked Hvar for its upbeat atmosphere, energy and restaurants along the Riva.

When you want realistic and authentic history, go to Korcula; when you are ready to pamper yourself, go to Hvar.
