Activities (41)

While Hvar has a deserved reputation for great beaches, excellent nightlife and a perfect climate, less is known about the full range of activities available on the island.

Adventurous tourists will be keen to check out the rock climbing, scuba diving, sailing and sea kayaking, while the more sedate visitors may like to investigate yoga, wine tours, off-road safaris and art classes.

There is the chance to compete in the Hvar Half Marathon, or swim the 16km Faros Marathon, cycle the islands roads or hike in its hills.  Check out the options below.

Adventure and Sport (6)

There are plenty of adventure sports to try on Hvar, with leading local specialist Hvar Adventure at the heart of much of the activity. Lose yourself in the Pakleni Islands in a kayak, sailboat or scuba diving, or check out the growing rock climbing challenges on Hvar.

There are plenty of sports to have a go at too, and if you are feeling particularly energetic, why not sign up for the Hvar Half Marathon or the 16km Faros Marathon swimathon?

Keeping the children entertained on holiday can be a challenge. The beaches are the most obvious attraction on Hvar, and there are plenty of family beaches to choose from. 

Away from the sea, however, there are various options for children's activities which are explored in this section, as well where to find the playgrounds, trampolines and child-friendly eateries.

Hvar is one of the top sailing destinations in the Adriatic, and its two ACI marina's are booming. There are plenty of sailing opportunities on the island, from enrolling in a sailing school, to sailing excursions, and even crewing on one of the many regattas in the area.

Weddings (3)

Hvar's wedding business is booming, and so I think it is time to make it one of the features on the site. We have written about various weddings in the past, but so much did I like that beautiful blog and the website of Adriatic Weddings Croatia that I thought it would be interesting to examine all aspects of the Hvar wedding business over the next few months through their eyes.  

If there is a particular aspect of Hvar weddings you would like us to cover, contact us on [email protected] and we will try and incorporate your wishes. 

Hvar really is a magical place to tie the knot. And go and honeymoon. And, ok then, to live full time...

    Rödmössen fly somliga år öfver allt, skära sönder säden, äta upp gräset, till millioner, alla fara i ett bort, ingen vet hvar de taga vägen.
