Hi, can someone tell me if the Hvar town market stalls at night still operate in October, and also Jelsa stalls do they operate in October at night
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.
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.
We are going to visit Hvar and would lioke to see Blue Grotto. Does anyone know what the best way to reach Bisevo from Jelsa or other town from Hvar is?
Thank you in advance.
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!
I want to about clubbing and parties in mid june .

I'll be taking the baby stroller how is Hvar in terms of accessibility in public transports, as well as street pavement? Thanks in advance!
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.
We will be on a sailboat for 2 weeks and would like to tour the caves. Must I take a tour or can we take our own dinghy in to the caves?

We are planning to go with a group of 20-year old students to Hvar. We would like to know if the nightlife in Hvar is still 'active' during the first two weeks of september, and what the average going out-budget is (like how much does a beer cost etc.)
Hey guys! Is it better to spend one day more in Hvar or use that day to go to Plitvice? With Plitvice I would have two days and a half in Hvar..
Thanks so much!
We're travelling from France to arrive in Hvar, so we have to take a ferry at Split I guess. Is there a need to book one or are there a lot of ferries so don't need to book before ? Is it easy to find the port ?
If I have a choice between these two, which one should I go to?
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.
Is the Open Tour bus operational this year? I am travelling to Croatia next week and would like to visit Hvar and use this bus if it is running.
can anyone tell me how to cross from Lelsa to Bol and back without using Jadrolinija Ferry (it departs from Jelsa at 06:00 in the morning!!!).

Cost and timetable for August please.
I will be on July in Hvar. What's the best place to stay? Hvar city ou Stari Grad? Tks.
My wife and I are spending a month traveling in Croatia and will be in Split October 2nd. I was planning on dropping off our rental car in Split and taking a passenger ferry to Hvar for 3 days and then move onto Kercula for 2 days and take a ferry to Dubrovnik for 5 days. I am having trouble finding a ferry that will take us from Kercula to Dubrovnik on October 7th. Any suggestions.
I am wondering if I need to make hotel reservations for Hvar and other areas of the coast such as Split and Dubrovnik in September, or are the crowds thinned out by then and would I be able to find a place to stay when I arrive.
Can anyone recommend a good safe driver with a minivan to take us around Hvar Island. We will be based in Jelsa.
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.
