Take a minute to relax, breathe and enjoy some of Croatia’s stunning islandscapes.
Today the first in our series, a snapshot of Otok (island) Hvar. The Queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands. Where the sun shines for an average of 7.7 hours per day.
Where the population at the last census in 2011 was just over 11,000, of whom 4,000 lived in Hvar Town itself.
Where more and more visitors are learning that there is so much more to the island of Hvar than the very famous Hvar town.
Just to summarise a few:
“Sandy beaches near the picturesque settlement of Jelsa with its rich tradition of agriculture, the ancient town of Stari Grad, where the past centuries mingle with modern tourist facilities, heavenly beaches under pine trees in Zavala, the exotic atmosphere of south cliffs in Ivan Dolac, Sveta Nedjelja, home to the steep Plavac Mali vineyards contributing to some of Croatia’s finest wine. the beautiful waterfront village and family-friendly beaches of Milna, with some of the best fish restaurants on the island the “little Venice” ambience in Vrboska, the lavender fields near Zastrazisce, Gdinj and Bogomolje, peaceful secluded bays near Sucuraj” Hvar Travel Portal
And this is just the beginning with so much to explore from the sea.
Hvar Island is definitely a destination to be consumed at leisure, not rushed through in a day.
With the added bonus of travelling by sea, meaning you can set sail to the smaller islands and islets of unique beauty: the Pakleni Islands at the drop of a hat, or sail around Sveta Nedilja, enjoying the Red Rocks on the way and if you’re a climber finding hidden places along the coast for climbing and deep water soloing. So enjoy your virtual snapshot of Hvar.
We can’t wait to share more with you and welcome you to Croatia for real!
