We are more than pleased to see island Hvar stay within your hearts during these difficult times. We believe that now when travelling is not an option for many, these votes are even more significant and show what matters most at a time when people aren't able to travel the way they want to.
Island Hvar once again finds itself on the list for best islands in Europe according to Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. For this year’s 33rd annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey that included over 715,000 registered voters, island Hvar has been voted 4th best island in Europe among Folegandros, Crete, Zakynthos and Mykonos in Greece.
Last year island Hvar took 1st place as best island in Europe.
“With warm summers and mild winters, the island of Hvar is the sunniest spot in Croatia—there are over 2,800 hours of sunshine annually. It may be known for its beaches and turquoise water, but there’s another side to this resort island. From the town of Hvar on the island’s southern shore, make the slow, uphill climb to Tvrđava Fortica, a 13th century fortress with the best views around.”
Pro tip: To see Hvar’s spectacular fields of lavender in full bloom, visit in early summer. The harvest takes place in late July, but you can buy all sorts of scented souvenirs in the local markets year-round.
