Hvar is a beautiful Croatian island that enjoys the perfect position in warm Adriatic waters, with sights galore to appeal to all. There are the ancient walls, hilltop fortress and renaissance-era cathedral, for one thing.
Then there are the beautiful beaches that beckon visitors keen to lie back and soak up the sunshine. With narrow winding streets to explore, there’s always something to do here. With its mild climate, the conditions couldn’t be better.
Hvar comes alive after dark, with a nightlife that is legendary. During the daytime, though, things tend to be quieter amid the olive trees, vineyards and lavender fields, making this the ideal spot to escape modern life and all its stresses. Like to explore further afield? Take a boat trip and visit the smaller surrounding islands, with their secluded coves and beaches and no-one else in sight.
