If you're already planning to visit Hvar, Croatia - scroll to the next section for a list of the best places to stay.

Hvar, Brac, Vis

Old town of Split ISLANDS Hvar, Brac, Vis Or take a ferry to one of the islands. I really can’t say which one, because every single has something magical to offer. The most popular one is definitely Hvar and it has the richest nightlife around; for some even more interesting than Split. You can take a small trip to Pakleni Islands from Hvar which is something you will remember for sure! Also, bike tours are great way to explore the islands. There is something in this area for everyone: easy vacation with your feet in the air, salt in your hair, drinking cocktails and having fun or busy type of holiday with lots of activities. Take a swim at one of the most famous beaches in Europe: Stiniva Cove on the island of Vis or be adventurous and dive into the Blue Cave nearby. Maybe try unusual beach shape of Zlatni Rat at Brac Island and see way it is one of the best beach destinations around. They are all reachable from Split and the connections are pretty good. As I said, it can get crowded during the summer but the magic of islands is that you can always find some special hidden place for yourself.

Hvar

The goal for the week ahead of us was pretty clear: We wanted to sail and relax a lot, sightseeing was secondary. So we decided that we would not head for one attraction after the other, but rather enjoy nature and lonely bays where there was nobody else besides us. There were two islands where we actually anchored and got on land. Hvar After several days at sea, my legs felt pretty weak when we had solid ground under our feet for the first time after setting sail. During these days, our crew had barely seen other people, except crew members of the other boats. So it was cool to be in a more busy place like this again. We had coffee at Hvar square, where a lot of tourists were enjoying the sun. This is the place where you automatically go to after getting off your boat, so there were quite a few people there.

The Island of Korcula

When I first arrived in Korcula, I was taken aback by the small number of people waiting at the end of the ferry terminal for me offering tours, transfers and the like. It was so small in comparison to the harbours of Dubrovnik and Hvar, I wasn’t sure if I was still in the same country! This is exactly what I was after – a spot in beautiful Croatia that wasn’t flooded with tourists, while still able to cater to a non-Croatian national with only English and Italian under her belt. I made my way into the centre of the town, to be greeted by a massive medieval fortified gate up a set of steps. For an aspiring history buff like me, I was in awe! Legend has it, that Korcula is actually the birth place of Marco Polo. The alleged house where he was born, sits in Korcula town, and is able to be entered with a small fee. I didn’t actually go inside – I was told by the locals that it was pretty boring. I made my way through the little medieval cobbled streets until I found my hostel. Hostel Caenazzo is a family owned hostel with a pizza restaurant out the front. Great for those on a budget, as the dorm rooms were actually the cleanest I have ever stayed in! Air conditioned as well, guests get a discount at the delicious restaurant! For all you budget travellers out there, this is the place!

A Road Trip from Zagreb to Hvar Island

Our fabulous road trip took place last summer. If you want to get to Hvar Island as soon as possible, take a highway from Zagreb and you’ll be there in no time (4-5 hours tops). But, if you’re feeling a little bit more adventurous – make Biha? (Bosnia and Herzegovina) your first stop.

Pelješac - the longest peninsula in Croatia

Pelješac is a second longest peninsula in Adriatic Sea. It’s a southern Dalmatian peninsula, which is with its length 65 km and a width approximately of 6 km, suitable for exploring and discovering just in one week. In vicinity of Pelješac are located more famous islands such as Kor?ula, Mljet, Hvar and  Lastovo, which are known as the most beautiful Islands in Croatia. Kor?ula was also named as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Despite the fact that there in its vicinity are so famous islands a lot of tourists decide to visit Pelješac anyway. From Pelješac you can go to one day trip to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Neretva valley or to famous Dubrovnik. You can also visit the near by islands with water taxi, ship or ferry.

EXPLORING THE ISLANDS LOŠINJ AND CRES

While many of you heard about the sunny days in Hvar (they allegedly have the most of them in whole Croatia) and Kor?ula, the birth town on Marco Polo I am sure Lošinj and Cres are one of the islands not many people know about.
