Now that’s truly island life!
Reasons for Hvar Holidays
If you’re having trouble picking a destination for your next holiday, here are a couple of reasons to consider Hvar, Croatia.
1. Food & Agriculture
Due to the wonderful climate and endless sunshine, Croatia and its thousands of islands are truly fertile land. Hvar has a wine tradition that’s over 2,400 years old.
Additionally, olive groves produce some of the finest olive oil in the world. The island is also blanketed in lavender fields, and you can enjoy the scent of lavender wherever you go.
But that’s not all. Hvar has mouth-watering food that fits all diets, even vegetarian/vegan, and is based off Mediterranean influences.
Many of the restaurants offer seafood delicacies along the coastline, but as you venture farther inland, you’ll find many traditional restaurants called konoba severing up Croatian meat dishes.
It’s a culinary paradise.
Throughout Hvar and other adjacent islands, you will find beaches, mountains, cities, towns, and more. Each of these places boast more than enough activities to keep you entertained.
Whether you enjoy shopping, deep-sea fishing, hiking, rock climbing, scuba diving, kayaking, sailing, or visiting museums during your holiday, everything can be done here.
Hvar has been fortunate to escape wars and natural disasters throughout the years, meaning that many of the old structures throughout the town have been preserved for hundreds of years.
For example, Hvar boasts the oldest theatre in the world that is over 400 years old. There’s even a Franciscan monastery that’s over 550 years old.
Don’t forget to check out the fortress, which appeared in the hit TV series The Game of Thrones.
The nightlife in Hvar is so good even Prince Harry and Beyonce partied here. Despite the relaxed settings and quiet streets of Hvar during the day, when the sun goes down, the nightclubs and bars come alive. There’s also moon parties on the beach.
Hvar has some of the finest beaches in the world. The top 5 would be Lucisca, Dubovica, Kordovon, Gdinj Bays, and Grebisce.
Depending on whether you want a family location, undeveloped settings, peaceful waters, or the convenience of nearby accommodations and restaurants, there’s a beach with your name on it.
Since the waters are so crystal clear, snorkelling is a must-do for all ages! Wherever you go, though, you can catch majestic sunrises and sunsets—so be sure to bring a camera.
Now that you know what awaits you in Hvar, how are you going to get there?
