Zavala is a wonderful destination for a holiday. It is not far from Hvar’s hotspot of Hvar Town yet it is peaceful, authentic, it offers a few restaurants and shops and it is surrounded by beautiful nature. You will wake to stunning sunrises and the soft sounds of crickets. Its rustic Dalmation stone houses fill the narrow cobbled streets plus you have a wonderful view of the islands of Scedro and Korcula as well as the Peljesac Peninsula. The slopes of the village are adorned with neat rows of vineyards and scented, blooming oleander flowers. It is a perfect paradise.

Just north of Zavala you will find Jelsa, the main tourist center on the north shore of Hvar. It boasts a fragrant dense pine forest, wonderful sandy beaches, numerous vineyards, historic cultural landmarks and good range of shops and gourmet restaurants. Vitarnja Beach is a delightful, beautiful cove near Jelsa. It is a great place for families with thrilling treats.

Along from Zavala, you will discover the popular Mlini Beach. It boasts crystal clear water and is surrounded by pine forest. Another popular excursion is to take a water taxi from Hvar Town to the sensational Pakleni Islands. Visitors flock to Hvar Town in the summer, visiting the beaches by day and partying into the night. The harbour is incredibly picturesque. The town enjoys many historic buildings including its wonderful medieval castle above the town, its 15th century monastery and its baroque cathedral. There are some lovely unique shops where you can buy souvenirs. At night, it is definitely the the celebrity hotspot it has become famous for.

Ancient Greek colonists founded Stari Grad in 384BC and named it Pharos. Throughout the town you will find remains of its glorious past. Stari Grad is very beautiful with a maze of picturesque narrow streets, the magical sounds of folk singers, galleries, charming courtyards, excellent shops and traditional taverns. The town sits proudly at the end of a deep inlet. The waterfront promenade continues along the northern bank to a small beach. The surrounding fields are still divided into parcels of land.

The Stari Grad Plain is amazing with tiny ancient villages, masses of lavender fields and beautiful scenery. It is the perfect place for a hike or cycle ride. Humac is a 16th century village without electricity set upon a hilltop on the remote and beautiful south coast. The gorgeous town of Vrboska has the nickname Little Venice with its sweet little bridges over the narrow fjord. Hvar is certainly an island of contrasts! It is a wonderful island to visit!

The island of Hvar stands out as one of Croatia's most enchanting destinations - a picturesque paradise that seamlessly combines natural beauty, historical charm and a lively cultural scene. The sun-drenched island’s stunning landscapes provide a picture-perfect backdrop to a whole wealth of
unforgettable experiences.

At the heart of the island is the port town of Hvar, a historic gem known for its well-preserved architecture and timeless allure. Take a wander through the traffic-free labyrinth of narrow streets, where you can soak up the charm of the island. The central square of Hvar Town is a bustling hub surrounded by centuries-old buildings and lively cafes - it’s a popular spot to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine from one of the many cafes and restaurants. The square is also home to the imposing St. Stephen's Cathedral, a beautiful example of Dalmatian Renaissance architecture.

Overlooking the town is the Hvar Fortress, a medieval citadel with a history dating back to the 13th century. The fortress is worthy of a visit for the epic panoramic views that stretch across the town and the Adriatic Sea. The ascent is especially rewarding it at sunset, when you can watch the town's
lights sparkle below.

Heading inland just a few kilometres from Hvar Town, the village of Velo Grablje is famous for its lavender fields. Visit during the summer and you'll be treated to the sight and scent of the vast fields in full bloom. The island is also celebrated for its vineyards and olive groves, producing some of Croatia's best wines and olive oils. Many wineries and oil mills offer tastings and tours, allowing
you to sample these local delights while learning about traditional production methods.

Just a short boat ride from the harbour of Hvar are the Pakleni Islands, a group of islets renowned for their pristine beaches, hidden coves, and emerald sea. The idyllic surroundings offer a tranquil escape from the bustle of the main island, making it a favoured day trip destination. Explore hidden
bays, discover secluded beaches, and enjoy water sports in this unspoiled paradise. The uninhabited resort of Palmižana on the island of Sveti Clement is a particular highlight - a hidden oasis known for its lush botanical gardens and crystal-clear water.

For outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers, Hvar's natural beauty provides a picturesque playground. Hvar offers numerous cycling trails for both beginners and experienced riders. The island's diverse terrain is ideal for exploring the charming villages, olive groves, and vineyards on two wheels. Or for a unique perspective of the islands scenic beauty, you can experience the Adriatic up close and paddle along the dramatic coastline in a kayak, discovering coves and sea caves.

Hvar, is a Mediterranean paradise that promises an array of unforgettable experiences. Whether you're wandering through the historic streets of Hvar Town, discovering hidden coves on the Pakleni Islands, or savouring local wines and delicacies, the island offers a blend of cultural exploration, natural beauty, and relaxation that's hard to match.

Villa Amarant is perfect for a family holiday. In fact, it is big enough for two families so children can enjoy their holiday with friends, or perhaps grand parents. The swimming pool is wonderful and the village is very friendly.

Jelsa is brilliant for children. Its Adventure Park is a 5 minute walk from Jelsa harbour. The park offers paintballing, splatmaster, axe throwing, bubble football, human table football, beach volleyball, archery and more. There is also an aquapark with a bouncy castle on water, a trampoline, slides and swings. Aquapark Vrboska is another aquapark facility in Vrboska at the popular Soline Beach.

Hvar Town offers a great choice of boat trips including tours of the Blue Cave and excursions to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Visitors can take a water taxi out to the Pakleni Islands or even arrange a child friendly kayak tour there. Many action-packed watersports are available. Young children love watching the boats sail by and exploring the town’s castle. Teenagers and young adults love celebrity spotting in Hvar town.

The island has some incredible beaches including Mekiceva Beach. It is a protected cove with dramatic rock formations and small pebbles. It is quieter than some beaches and you might want to wear water shoes but it is a lovely day out. Dubovica is another lovely beach with a wonderful restaurant for lunch. Mlini is always popular with families.

Cycling on the Stari Grad plain is wonderful for families. You can enjoy the nature and stop at little villages. There is a sailing school in Stari Grad during August which is very popular. Just above Gromin Dolac, the Grapceva cave, Humac, is full of stalactites and stalagmites, a wonderful excursion with children. Ancient relics from 4 BC were discovered in the cave, making it the most significant prehistoric site in the Adriatic. Slightly inland, Gariful Organic Farm is great fun and boasts many animals and horse riding.
