Two of the standout attractions in Hvar are St. Stephen’s Cathedral and accompanying St. Stephen’s Square. The renaissance-style cathedral is the centrepiece of the town where you will find plenty of beauty to awe at, both inside and outside the cathedral as the evening sun hits it. The square right next to the cathedral is lined with lively bars and restaurants that spill out into the street - giving very traditional European ‘cafe-culture’ vibes. If you are looking for one of the best beaches on the island, look no further than Dubovica with its crystal-clear waters. Hvar also serves as the perfect base for doing some island-hopping to various secluded beaches and coves.

The region also enjoys very low rainfall throughout this period and the temperatures regularly reach the high 20s. There is no direct airport onto the island, so your best way of reaching it is to fly to Split airport and then get a regular bus or shuttle to the ferry port for the island. This will take you around about 2 and a half hours. There are also options from Dubrovnik airport but this method is a bit longer.
