Active holidays in Hvar


The city of Hvar is a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and a plethora of touristic opportunities.

Hvar town is situated in a picturesque bay, facing south, and as such is one of the most wonderful attractions in the Mediterranean. With it's colourful history, Hvar is an inexhaustible treasury of scenery, atmosphere and adventure.

It's name derives from the Greek name for the island and town that stood where Stari Grad stands today - PHAROS. Hvar became the island’s "capital" in the 13th century.

Hvar gained glory and power during the middle ages, being an important port within the Venetian naval empire. Today, it is the centre of Hvar island’s tourism, and one of the favourite destinations on the Dalmatian riviera - a town of smiling and courteous people, who are almost entirely dedicated to tourism.

Today, just like then, the islands are covered with thick pine woods provid- ing refreshing shade even during the hotest summer days. Besides the well-known beach of Palmi- zana, the route through narrow straits and along the islands reveals small hidden pebble beaches where you can enjoy the privilege of having, at least temporarily, a beach of your own. Returning back to Hvar around 2pm. Light lunch in a restaurant on the beach.
