More international recognition for the sunniest island in Europe, as Hvar is once again named in the prestigious Conde Nast Readers Choice awards. This year, Hvar was placed in the top 20 islands in the world, according to votes from readers of the highly influential travel magazine. Here is what they had to say:
One of the most glamorous islands in the Adriatic Sea, Hvar plays host to the see-and-be-seen scene of the Dalmatian Islands. The island’s main city, Hvar Town, exudes beauty, too, with 13th-century walls surrounding delicate Venetian architecture and pedestrian-only marble streets.
Pro tip: Join the new Riviera’s most fashionable at the Top, Adriana Hvar Marina Hotel & Spa’s chic rooftop bar, overlooking the yacht-filled marina. The hotel also offers incredible spa services, including a rooftop lounge with cabanas for massages and an indoor-outdoor seawater pool.
Getting there: Book a flight to Split, the closest airport to the Dalmatians’ 79 islands, and hop onto a water taxi to Hvar. The trip usually takes around one hour.
