    • Where to stay and where to go in/around Split (with a 6 year old)

      Split Jul 14, 2016 at 7:38 AM

      Hi all :)

      I'm going to Split in mid October with my son for a week.

      Firstly - should we only have accommodation in Split and then settle for day trips; or should we try to stay some where else too? Like a some days on an island or a village…something off track?

      Then - I really like to focus on kid friendly activities and nature, something off track would be nice too, something to challenge my boy a bit :) Trying to avoid mass tourism a bit. We'll have to check out some of the amazing islands - but which ones?

      Hope to get some hints - thanks a million!

    • A May week in Hvar

      by DianeVOC Online Now Feb 4, 2015 at 10:02 AM

      I am a brand new member. We will be spending a week in Hvar and another in Korkula within furnished apartments in May. Any suggestions on:

      1. what sorts of day boat trips and island trips to take with our interest in culture and nature,

      2. whether we need a car or can get around via local buses,

      3. what the local grocery store options are or if we should just be planning on eating out.  If we should be eatting out, what good inexpensive restaurant options are available?

      Thanks for any information you can provide.

    • Sucuraj to Drvenik

      by Briankim Online Now Jan 25, 2015 at 6:59 PM

      Dear Hvar experts,
      We are planning a rental car trip on early September.
      Part of our trip would be from Split to Hvar to Dubrovnik.
      I thought that we should take the ferry from Split to Stari Grad, and take the same ferry from Stari Grad to Split.
      Then I found that there are other ferries from Sucuraj to Drvenik, which might be less crowded and less time to land and less driving time to Dubrovnik.
      Do you think this is a good idea?
      Thank you in advance.

      We want to show the kids something other than beaches. Is there somewhere on Hvar which shows how lavender is farmed or cheese is produced? Something along those lines. A nice educational excursion is what we are looking for.

    • How to get to Hvar from Geneva?

      by hahauidiot Online Now May 25, 2014 at 1:43 PM

      Hi, sorry if this is inappropriate for these forums, I'm just really struggling to figure out how to do this. I'm trying to get from Geneva to Hvar on July 17th, but if it's not possible then on the 18th. I can't leave until after 12 due to class. Could anyone give me suggestions? I would be down to either fly to Split or to Dubrovnik and take a ferry from there. Just so far the flights I've found last over 24 hours and are just impractical. Also if need be I can spend a night in Split or Dubrovnik and take a ferry the next day if I can't get there in time to make the ferry on Thursday. Once again sorry to be asking something so specific as travel itinerary, but I've been searching a lot and haven't had much luck. Thanks for any and all the help!

    • Boat Rental

      by MatthewChiang Online Now Aug 22, 2013 at 10:30 AM

      I will be in Hvar Town from September 12-13, 2013 with my girl friend. It has been recommended to us that we rent a small boat and tour around the Pakleni Islands. Does anyone know how much it would cost for the day to rent a small motorized boat? Also what Islands should we go to when we get the boat? We are 28 years old and would like to go to some Islands that have nice beaches with some lively outdoor bars.

      Thank you,

      I am travelling to Hvar from Split on 11 July. I land in Split at 10.30 a.m. and need to travel from the airport to the port for the onward journey to Hvar. Does anyone know a website/s with up to date ferry timetables? I believe I can get a ferry from Split to Stari Grad or one from Split to Hvar town. My accommodation is in Hvar town so it would be preferable to get the ferry to Hvar town however if they are less frequent I can travel by bus from Stari Grad. Thanks all.

    • Going to Pakleni Island with small boat

      by Oside123 Online Now Jul 27, 2011 at 5:09 AM


      I am going with my girlfriend to Hvar beginning of september and we would like to rent a small motorboat (2-person boat with outboard motor) to make a one-day excursion to the Pakleni Islands. I don't have any experience with boats. I have a few questions:

      - Can you rent a small boat when you don't have permit or alike?
      - Is it realistic to go to the islands without boat experience? I guess there is some traffic going out of Hvar port too?
      - And then a probably very stupid question: what do you do with the boat when you see a beach that you like? Has a small boat some kind of anchor? Or do you have to pull it onto the beach? Or...?

      This beginning sailor thanks you for your responses.
