WHERE IS HVAR ISLAND, CROATIA?
Hvar is an Adriatic island on Croatia's famous Dalmatian coast. It is surrounded by several islands, including Brač, Korčula, and Vis, and is approximately an hour's boat ride from Split. The island is Croatia's longest and sunniest, with a population of around 11,000 people.
WHEN TO VISIT HVAR?
The best time to visit the island is during the shoulder seasons (April-early June, September-October). The island is then particularly pleasant, not just because the days are long and the sea is warm, but also because the crowds are smaller and more manageable. Furthermore, food and beverage prices are lower during the off-season.
However, if you want to make the most of your summer holiday, Hvar is the ideal destination because it is the island with the biggest number of sunny days, allowing you to maximize your free time and enjoy your holiday.
WHAT TO EAT & DRINK ON HVAR ISLAND?
Traditional Dalmatian cuisine such as ‘Pašticada’ (Dalmatian Beef Stew), ‘Peka’ (veal, pork, octopus traditional roast), baked lamb, octopus salad, black risotto with cuttlefish can be found in most traditional Dalmatian restaurants (“konoba”) in Hvar, Stari Grad, Jelsa, Vrboska, Suraj, etc.
Fried squids are usually popular, as are high-quality grilled Adriatic seafood (dentex, snapper, sea bass, sea bream, amberjack, grouper etc.) Domestic chefs are great masters when it comes to grilling fine fish, which is typically served with baked potatoes or mangel.
Request homemade olive oil with any offered fish, and use it liberally! A glass of red wine is a must-have while staying on Hvar. Crabs from the Adriatic deep-sea - lobsters - are at the top of the gourmet menu - in some places for customers with a bigger wallet.
Domestic prosciutto and cheese are usually served for starters, and for a dessert choose between cheesecake, panna cotta, tiramisu, or Dalmatian rožata.
WHERE TO FIND THE BEST BEACHES ON HVAR?
Hvar town is home to a number of beautiful coves and beaches, as well as private beach bars that attract visitors to the island for a day excursion. Beautiful coves overlooking the mountains of Brac island may be found in the north, beyond Stari Grad, Vrboska, and Jelsa. These coves are quieter, similar to this part of the island, and are ideal for families or people wishing to get away from Hvar Town's crowds.
Remote beaches and a more laid-back atmosphere can be found to the south. As the sun gently sets below the horizon, these beaches are ideal for sunset swimming.
Then there's the Pakleni Islands, which are only a short boat trip away. Drop anchor, dive in and experience some of the clearest waters imaginable in one of the mesmerizing bays.
However, any beach on Hvar where you put your towel will be fantastic!
Some of the best beaches on Hvar Island: Dubovica, Pokonji dol, Lučišća, Jagodna, Prapatna, Skala, Malo Zaraće, Ivan Dolac, Maslenica, Mekicevica, Gromin Dolac, Palmižana.
