• Hvar Old Town
  • Hvar Island harbour view
  • Overview

    Queen of the Dalmatian Islands, beautiful Hvar, is favoured by wealthy Croatians and discerning Italians whose luxury yachts anchor off the coast during the summer months. It’s a 105 minute ferry journey from Split to the main port of Stari Grad, which set around a bay, is the oldest settlement on the island and a charming little town with a host of restaurants, bars and shops. The delightful Hvar Town is the real star of the island.

    Set amidst olive trees, vineyards, rosemary and wild lavender, there are palaces and churches and, lined with delightful cafés, restaurants and bars, the Riva, the central thoroughfare, leads from the picturesque harbour to 16th century St Stephen’s Cathedral which dominates the main square, and up to the Fortica Fortress.

    There is access to the sea from rocky shores or bathing platforms in the town, or for a day on a secluded pebble beach the nearby, pretty pine covered islands of Pakleni Otoci can easily be reached by regular taxi boats from the town harbour.
