Hvar Island

Hvar1 Most people who travel to Korcula also visits Hvar Island as this is Korcula neighbouring Island and as good neighbours, I would like to add to this site some info about the island including how to reach it from Korcula, Mljet, Dubrovnik, Split and Vis.

These are all frequently asked questions on our travel forum as well as in emails I receive daily.

Getting to Hvar Island

To get to the island you have to take a ferry. There are four ferry ports to the Island: Hvar Town, Stari Grad, Jelsa and Sucuraj . All ferries arrive and depart from these places. There are ferries to Hvar from Split, Vis, Brac, Korcula, Mljet and Dubrovnik as well as from Ancona in Italy.

Accommodation on Hvar Island

Accommodation on the island could be difficult to find in the summer months so I would recommend to do your accommodation booking in advance unless you plan to visit the island out of season. Although most visitors to the Island stay in Hvar Town, there are also lot of accommodation available in neighbouring places – Vrboska, Jelsa, Stari grad…in these places accommodation is much cheaper then in the Town itself.
