How many days should you spend in Hvar?
Since we get this question from you a lot, let us share few friendly tips on booking your holidays in Croatia.
Whether your entering point will be airport in Zagreb, Pula, Zadar, Dubrovnik or Split, to get to Hvar you will have to come to Split. In case you are first visiting Dubrovnik, you have an option of catching a ferry in Drvenik to Sucuraj, and than drive 45 minutes across Hvar inland to visit Hvar town. Other option from Dubrovnik is driving straight to Split, as personally that is my favorite part of Dalmatian coast. Basically Zagreb, Pula, Zadar, Dubrovnik and Split especially are all beautiful towns with a lot to discover, but to see main attractions you will need a day or two.
If we are talking about vacation, you are surely craving some leisure time to relax and unwind from intense moments of your life, and what is more perfect than setting yourself on island time? All this cities on the coast have a vibe of urban life, and that is why I would recommend to stay on Hvar for 3 days or longer.
No, no, wait a second, it is not a promotion of my obviously favorite town in the world, but just a suggestion to make Hvar your base for some island exploring. I can promise you that rhythm of life in Hvar will seduce you and breathtaking nature and bays will be in your memories forever. And the sea…well, lets just say that a word crystal clear will get a new meaning in your life.
Once you come to Split and buy your catamaran ticket (catamaran takes you directly into Hvar harbor in front of Riva hotel) or ferry ticket (ferry takes you to Stari Grad, and then you can catch a bus or take a taxi for your 20 minute ride to Hvar town) you will pass island of Brac, Ciovo and Solta and come to Hvar. First you have to explore the town full of history and tradition. It is a place that combines active mornings, relaxing afternoons and wild nights. Next day you can go island hopping, visit Pakleni islands and go sailing to Island of Vis. On your third day you can explore island country side and vineyards and you can even go from Jelsa to famous beach Zlatni rat in Bol, island of Brac. On your fourth day you can prolong your stay for..forever.
And after you are again on your way to Split or Dubrovnik. Whatever you do make sure you don't skip it as it is really a place with a soul.
