5 Reasons Not to Visit Hvar Island, Croatia






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…

1. There are towns you’ve never heard of and won’t know how to pronounce.

They look like this…

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.
