Island of Hvar 

Welcome to island of Hvar

Hvar is the perfect holiday spot - relaxed by day and enchantingly chic by night. It also boasts of having more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in Croatia

Hvar has far more than its fair share of good looks and charm. Wooded hills sweep down to meet the red roofs and pale stone walls of magnificent buildings, surveying the palm fringed harbour and sparking turquoise of the Adriatic. It is breathtakingly beautiful, its grand old buildings lending it a sense of gravitas. The magnificent Venetian architecture with ornate balconies and intricately carved spires and towers is picturesque in the extreme. It was once the wealthiest town in Dalmatia and Renaissance palaces shelter beneath the city walls, overlooked by a hilltop fortress. 

These days Hvar attracts a different kind of wealth with many impressive yachts moored in its beautiful harbour. There are some seriously swanky restaurants and plenty of stylish bars, however, Hvar still maintains an unassuming allure. There is a wide range of places to eat, many of which still provide great value for money.

Hvar Town has some pebble beaches and there are plenty of rocky swimming places around the seafront promenade. Most people, however, take the small boats which leave every morning for the nearby Pakleni islands with their choice of attractive beaches - most of them pebble and shingle. 

Make sure that you head back to town in time to order a cocktail from one of the harbour-front bars and watch the sun set over the sea. Take a promenade along the seafront, past the stalls selling fragrant lavender, which is the main crop of the island, and decide where to have dinner. 

It is certainly worth exploring the fascinating buildings of the old town. During the summer months, the streets here are closed to cars, which adds to the evocative atmosphere of days gone by.

"I wanted to send you an e-mail now that we are back from our wonderful holiday. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the team at Diamond Star for arranging a truly unique style of holiday that we are still talking about to friends and family two weeks after we came home. The places we have visited, and the things we have seen were truly amazing, it will take a month or more to sort through our photos"  Andrew and June Welch - 24 Oct 2022

"Back from our holiday to Istanbul/Cappadocia what an awesome holiday. The hot air balloon was out of this world. Thank you Diamond Star for making it all possible special thanks to Nazan. I recommend this company to make your dreams come true."  Mrs Angela Bailey - 6 Oct 2022

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
