Choose from a hundred hidden bays to some of Europe’s recognised best. Nature? Welcome to the lavender island, whose temperate climate led it to become the birthplace of organised tourism in Europe in 1868 – a special 150 year anniversary is due in 2018.
Sailing? The Pakleni Islands in front of Hvar are are of the nautical musts of the Adriatic. Tradition? Explore the millennia of heritage and history in inland Hvar with an off-road tour.
