Island living with beautiful beaches and bustling bars

You might think you've gone to heaven, but your Hvar vacation rental is actually on an idyllic island in the Adriatic Sea. Set off the Dalmatian coast, the picturesque Croatian island is a popular summer destination dotted with pristine beaches and yachts that bob in the glistening waters. During the day, explore the historic streets of the island's biggest town, also named Hvar. Once the sun sets, the town's bars and nightclubs come alive with music and dancing. Hvar offers majestic beauty in the form of lush vineyards, which produce some of Croatia's finest wines, and vibrant lavender fields.

From sunbathing to shopping—adventures on sea and land

Pull yourself away from the comfort of your Hvar vacation rental and discover the island's charm. Start the day with a leisurely stroll down the pedestrian-only, stone streets of Hvar, pausing to duck inside charming restaurants, cafes, and boutique shops. Treat yourself to a relaxing day of sunbathing on the beach or set out on the water for an afternoon of fishing, snorkeling, or swimming. You'll also find plenty of opportunities for kayaking and sailing. Hop aboard a boat bound for the nearby Pakleni Islands, where you can hide away in coves and isolated beaches.

From medieval madness to the wonders of winemaking

You'll find a host of historic sights inside the 13th-century walls of Hvar. The hilltop medieval castle and fort offers sweeping views of the town below and the surrounding Pakleni Islands. Quaint St. Stephen's Square provides a peaceful resting spot in the heart of the city and gives way to the hallowed grounds of the 16th-century St. Stephen's Cathedral. The adjacent Episcopal Museum displays treasured artwork and religious artifacts. Tour sacred space inside the 15th-century Franciscan Monastery or make your way to the countryside for an afternoon of winetasting at various vineyards and wineries.

Basking in the sun, cooling in the island breezes

No matter when you visit, Hvar offers lovely weather. In the summer, the island greets travelers with plenty of sunshine, with daytime highs in the mid-80s, and evenings that rarely dip below 70. Hvar doesn't get a lot of rain but if you ever need an umbrella it will probably be in November and December, Hvar's wettest months. The sea is too cold for swimming in the winter, when the mercury dips into the 50s, but daytime conditions can reach the mid-60s in the spring and fall.

Mountains, and beaches, and forests, oh my!

The island of Hvar is long and narrow—it's about 42 miles long and only 6.5 miles across at its widest point. Whether your Hvar vacation rental is located along the island's 158 miles of coastline or tucked away inland near its pine forests, you'll find yourself surrounded by a landscape painted with natural beauty. The Mediterranean vegetation includes blossoming hillsides covered in vineyards, olive groves, and fruit orchards, before yielding to colorful lavender fields. The island's highest peak, Mount St. Nikola, looks out over the island at 2,060 feet.
