Hvar is a well-developed island just off Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, attracting travellers to its vibrant port town and excellent beaches. Summertime sees huge crowds occupying popular spots like Dubovica, 8 km east of Hvar Town, and Bonj Beach that's renowned for its nightlife. You can find more secluded beaches and coves on the nearby Pakleni Islands – easily reachable by hiring a pasara (small boat) or joining a cruise.

    Surrounded by 13th-century walls, Hvar Old Town offers a labyrinth of age-old cobbled and marble streets, where you can visit historic landmarks like Cathedral of St. Stephen, Paladini Palace and Hvar Theatre. For excellent views of Hvar, climb to the top of the 13th-century Hvar Fort, which sits high above Hvar Town.
