How to Get to Hvar Island 2011
Recognised as one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world by readers of Conde Nast, and with an average of 2724 hours of sun, the island of Hvar is growing in popularity as a tourist destination.
Croatia's premier island is a diverse and rewarding experience, from the party atmosphere of Hvar Town to yoga and meditation in picturesque settings. The northern resorts of Jelsa, Vrboksa and Stari Grad offer a more relaxed break by the sea in old stone surroundings, while southern beach resorts such as Zavala, Ivan Dolac and Sveta Nedelja offer excellent family beach holidays.
