Excursion's informationsHvar, the sunniest Croatian island is lying between the islands of Brač, Vis and Korčula.
The island has typical Mediterranean vegetation.
The hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The climate is characterized by warm summers with many hours of sunshine.
With its long and rich history this is one of the most interesting islands on the Croatian coast.
The highest peak is St. Nikola, at 628 meters, with a small chapel from the 15th century.
The view from the top shows nearby islands Korčula, Vis, Brač, Pakleni islands in front of the Hvar harbour, the small island of Šćedro. St. Nikola provides also an excellent view of UNESCO protected Greek Hora. This fertile plain has been farmed since pre-historic times, and the Greek field layout is still largely intact.
