5 Reasons Not to Visit Hvar Island, Croatia (Photos)

Your Hvar Bucket list! Things to do in Hvar Island, Croatia; A fun sarcastic post on one of the best beaches in the world with photos and travel tips. From the travel blog Travel-Break.net

Too often, tourists stop by Hvar island for a snap or two from the Fort and a day party at Hula Hula or night at Carpe Diem. They don’t milk the island for what it’s worth.

Hvar island is incredibly sunny, averaging 2718 hours of sunshine a year. In fact, the island is so sunny that hotels are required to provide a free night of accommodation if it snows. It’s the only place in the world with 4 UNESCO heritage sites. While I am guilty of only visiting Hvar town during my previous trips, celebrities like Beyonce, Prince Harry, and Bill Gates have been properly Hvaring all this time.

If you don’t know what you’re missing, let me provide some compelling reasons to visit the island in its entirety…

2. The Croatian food and wine will have you breaking every diet.

Cheese, fish, meats, and original wines similar to a Zinfandel.

3. There are too many vantage points to choose from…

Sorry, but you won’t be the main attraction in your selfie with all of those yachts, islands, and red-roofed homes.

4. The Taxi Alternatives are a Little Funny

No Lyft, Uber, or cabs here. We took an intimate sea plane for about $60, as well as motorboats, ferries, and yachts throughout our stay in Hvar.

    Sorry, but under point 1 the second picture doesn´t show Stari Grad but the main square and church in Hvar Town.
    Stari Grad has a wonderful Yacht-Harbour and the old part of the town is one of the 4 Unesco heritages. And – by the way – there are some very good restaurants (Pineta, Kod Barba Luka, Eremitaz aso) where you get as good food as in Hvar Town – for half the price!!!
    When you come your 5th time to Hvar – I could show you much more secrets.
    Regards Hajo
