Hvar Island with high expectations and left with those expectations well and truly shattered in the best way possible.
Surprising, when you consider this is the island where Prince Harry solidified his party-boy reputation, and where celebrities from George Clooney, to Jay-Z and Beyonce regularly choose to holiday.
But it wasn’t necessarily the beauty of the island’s capital, Hvar town, that blew us away (although it IS insanely beautiful),
Nope, it was the Island as a whole.
From the white-washed towns and historic cobbled streets of Stari Grad and Vrboska to the clear blue waters and almost-empty beaches and coves of the Islands’ south; the crystal-clear waters and deserted lagoons of the Pakleni islands, to the quaint, home-style restaurants serving delicious Dalmatian fare; and the photogenic rolling hills swathed in layers of fragrant lavender, olive trees, and vineyards, Hvar Island is so much more than just the glitz and glamour of its main town.
