How to Spend 3 Days in Hvar

How to Spend 3 Days in Hvar

With three days in Hvar, you have time to see the top sights, relax on a beach or two, go kayaking or wine-tasting, and hit the nightclubs. Here are our top tips for optimizing your time on the island, including options for offshore day tours.

Day 1: Culture Overview

Spend your first day getting your bearings and learning about Hvar’s cultural heritage. Wander around the island’s main hub, Hvar Town, on foot for an intimate glimpse of its medieval landmarks and religious sites, then widen your perspective and explore another island settlement, such as Stari Grad or Jelsa. Day tours let you forego the hassle of planning in advance, and some have themes such as wine, food, or history. Finish the day with laid-back drinks in one of the town’s boho bars, or immerse yourself in party vibes at one of the famous nightclubs.

Day 2: Beaches

After a night of dancing, hop in a speedboat or kayak and head for some scenic beaches. Within easy reach of Hvar, the Pakleni Islands are ideal for swimming, sunbathing, and natural sightseeing. (Alternatively, save the more active excursions for evening, when it’s cooler out.) Tours typically include round-trip transport from Hvar Town. For dinner, seek out a rural restaurant for a rich culinary experience away from the hustle and bustle of the main square, and take in the views of the sunset and night sky.

Day 3: Enriching Experiences

Get a glimpse of the wider Adriatic on a day tour by speedboat to more distant highlights, such as Vis island and Biševo’s Blue Cave. Or, charter a private sailing vessel for some exclusive sightseeing. Alternatively, keep families or large groups entertained on a visit to one of the island’s activity centers, where team games and sports provide memorable experiences. To avoid the restrictions of the public ferry schedule, arrange for private transport back to the mainland at a time that suits you, and enjoy a relaxing Hvarian dinner.
