Hvar (island)
Hvar is the sunniest and longest Croatian island located off the Dalmatian coast. It is characterized by pleasant winter and summer resorts, mild climate and abundant subtropical vegetation. Hvar's economy is based on tourism, fishing, farming, viticulture, olive growing and especially on cultivation of rosemary and lavender. Friendly people, well-indented coast, numerous picturesque and intact beaches and bays, virgin nature, very rich historical and cultural inheritance, the scents of lavender, olive trees and wine are the reasons that island Hvar welcomes more and more tourists each year.

Nice

Hvar is appealing. Personally we preferred Korcula and Brac but Hvar was also very nice. We only had one full day and night there. It would have deserved more time. It is more popular for those who want to party. Somewhat pretentious place. Walked all the way up to the fortress and got there and you have to pay to enter - many didn't. Could be free as it is just a ruin really with a good view. Our accommodation there was in the old city so reasonably noisy as the boats are noisy at night with people partying till all hours. I would choose to stay at a further away place or another part of the island if I went again. The outlying islands are popular - numerous yachts lined up together at some. I found beaches average - better at some other places in Croatia. Very crowded everywhere in the tourist season and noiser here than other places we went. As I said, suits party goers more.

Amazing views

What an island! Gorgeous place, 2hrs on the ferry from Split, beautiful countryside and lovely blue sea. Great for a day trip. I rented a bicycle to get inland and see some "real" Croatia away from the tourist parts and it was well worth it. Amazing views.

A lovely place

Hvar is a lovely place, waters are tranquil, clean & turquoise.. Buildings date back to Greek antiquity. Walking thru the narrow lanes, and visiting a lovely old Dominican Monastery, brings history to life. the museum houses "The Mourninf of Christ," by Tintoreto.The people are extremely friendly, speaking both Croatian (very difficult) and English. Very fresh food served in a varity of restaurants or "konobas."
