Hvar Island, Croatia

1-800-845-1717

Awaiting Your Return From Shore

  Hvar Island  is covered with vineyards and olive groves and is surrounded by a translucent cobalt sea.
    With the arrival of the Croats in the Middle Ages, Hvar achieved renown and power as an important port and part of the Venetian marine empire. Under Venetian rule, Hvar grew rich exporting wine, figs and fish. Despite social and political changes through the years, the island has kept its artistic activity, and, with the exception of Dubrovnik, the island was the greatest center of early Croatian literature, architecture, sculpture, painting and music. 

Pier Information
Guests will be taken ashore via the ship's tenders to the Hvar Harbour Pier. The town center is a short walk from the landing site. Taxis are not generally available at the pier but are in town.

Shopping
In the center of town you can purchase items representative of the area, which include wine, lavender oil, olive oil, and jewelry. Normal shopping hours are from 7 to noon and 4 to 9.
Cuisine
Pizza and pasta are popular items on local menus. Fresh seafood is also a good choice and figures prominently on any menu.
Other Sights
Crvene Stijene (Red Rocks). Five miles east of Hvar lies an unusual and picturesque natural phenomenon. Layers of limestone interspersed with reddish breccia were lifted up in some distant geological past. The soft beccia layers were washed away by rain and the sea, leaving vertical red-coated hollows.
Pakleni Otoci. A group of about 20 charming islets situated opposite the town of Hvar, this is a beautiful and unique spot. The islands are small, partially wooded, with gravel and sandy beaches. The area beckons to naturists.
