With two pandemic-dominated years causing issues and very valid concerns among all those working within the country’s most economically powerful sector – tourism, continuing news about excellent tourist numbers during the pre-season and now during the beginning of the height of the summer season are more than welcome.
As Morski writes, things are looking great for the Hvar main tourist season, as there are 1,200 tourists in the aforementioned company’s hotels, reservations so far have been very good, and June so far is better than the pre-pandemic June of 2019.
The current visitors to the beautiful island of Hvar come from all over Europe, including Spain, Britain, and Germany. Tourists accustomed to inflation in their own countries are no longer bothered by the current higher Croatian prices, and they aren’t complaining about ferry ticket prices or about prices in restaurants and cafes.
”The prices are completely fair,” said one tourist.
”Hotel occupancy is over 90 percent, most guests at the moment have come from the markets of the United States, Great Britain and other European countries, and in principle they are all guests of higher purchasing power. They stay 3 to 4 days, they like to eat and drink well and they also like excursions and boats,” explained one employee of the Suncani Hvar hotel chain.
While Hvar has been doing well to gradually begin moving away from its title of the ”Croatian Ibiza”, this Central Dalmatian island continues to be a mecca of good fun. Nightclubs and beach bars are still recovering from the coronavirus-induced damage and are expanding when it comes to their offer.
Everything is ready for another Hvar main tourist season during which this popular island will surely be at the top of various top destinations, both in a global and European sense.
