Things To Do in Hvar
Hvar is the party island. There are other things to do there, and it’s even possible to go to Hvar with kids, but most people go there to party. I’ll start with the beaches though.
Beaches in Hvar
Hvar isn’t ideal if you’re looking for beaches as the beach in the centre is mostly large stones. Not even a pebble beach, literally large stones. But if you position yourself well on a stone you can make it work.
There are also day trips you can do to other islands to find a beach. Just walk along the harbour front and negotiate with the different boats to find one to take you.
Hvar Pub Crawl
There is an oragnised pub crawl in Havar . Part of me kind of dislikes organised pub crawls on principle however they are usually really fun and a good way to meet other people. We had a lot of fun on the pub crawl there and would never have known about a party going on the next night in a bar up on a hill kind of in the middle of nowhere if it weren’t for it.
Fair Warning: You may end up looking as crazy as we do in the photo at the top of this page if you go on the pub crawl though.
When we tried to pretend to be slightly fancier and have a posh evening out too. We found a bar just round where the coast curves so got a beautiful view of the city from it too.
Where To Stay in Hvar
Again we were swarmed with people when we got off the ferry and just went with the most reasonably priced person who had a 3 person room. Fair warning though when people say it’s just 2 minutes walk away in Croatia it never is. EVER.
Our place was therefore a little way away from the center and kind of odd as we just had this 3 person room with balcony on the second flood of a house. I think they rented out the other rooms and some of the family lived downstairs. I’m not really sure to be honest and we were out most of the time so it didn’t matter that much.
How Long To Stay in Hvar
We spent 3 nights in Hvar but could easily have spent more.
Moving On: How to Get from Hvar to Split
As with all the islands you need to get another early morning ferry for this but book the ferry as soon as you arrive in Hvar. They book up quickly as it’s such a popular place to go and we almost weren’t able to leave in time to make it back for our flights back home. We actually ended up having to book the boat to go from a ferry port in a different town and get a bus there so we didn’t miss out flights!
