www.TravelsWithSheila.com The Island of Hvar is often called "One of the world's most beautiful islands." With that kind of built-up along with Manager Josif's recommendations (Hotel Luxe), how could we miss seeing it? A one-hour catamaran over from Split, jam-packed with people schlepping luggage to stay at one of the resorts and enjoy Hvar's excellent beaches. Not day-tripping like us. Your first jaw-dropping sight from the boat is the imposing Fortress perched on a hill above old Hvar built for defense against the Turks. With Venetian symbols and architecture throughout small Hvar, it is a picture perfect destination.
