With 2,724 hours of sunshine a year, Hvar lays claim to being the sunniest island in Croatia. It’s also one of the most sophisticated, especially in Hvar Town, whose nightlife is among the hottest in the Adriatic – think elegant hotels, swanky cocktail bars, and exclusive beach bars in an idyllic island setting.
Away from the beachfront nightclubs and party boats of Hvar Town, you’ll find a tranquil Dalmatian Island of fragrant lavender fields, vineyards and olive groves. Tucked into its indented coastline are secluded pebble bays and sandy beaches backed by pine woods. Despite its immense popularity – it’s one of the most visited islands in Croatia – you can still find places to escape during a Hvar holiday.
The Venetians ruled Hvar from the 14th to the 18th centuries, and you’ll see their legacy all over the island, particularly in the pretty pastel houses that line the harbours of its main towns. You don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate the beauty of the Renaissance architecture in the main settlements of Hvar Town and Stari Grad. Aside from beautiful beaches and pretty towns, Hvar is dotted with ancient castles and secluded monasteries, including the 15th-century Franciscan Monastery of Hvar Town.
As an antidote to glitzy Hvar Town, Stari Grad offers a more laidback experience as well as access to some fine beaches. The villages of Jelsa and Vrboska are even more chilled out – perfect for lazy days at the beach when you’re not feasting on fresh seafood in waterside restaurants. Don’t miss day trips to the pristine Pakleni Islands, a small archipelago just off Hvar, and the Blue Cave, a spectacular grotto lit up like a sapphire.
