Geography of Hvar

The sea is crystal clear with beautiful bays and pebbled beaches, limestone hills, vineyards and fields of fragrant lavender, pine forests and picturesque villages rich with historical and cultural sites.

These year marks 150 years of tourism on the island of Hvar, which is the most visited Croatian island in the summer and winter months. 

Despite that, Hvar is still being described as “the Mediterranean as it used to be” and a “well preserved” island without excessive tourism development and commercialization, without haste and bustle.
