Traveling to Hvar, Croatia’s sun-drenched island, is an exciting visitor experience in itself. Accessible only by sea, you can take a ferry (together with your rental car), catamaran, private boat or even an UberBoat, to reach its golden shores. The island is much more than the celebrity-spotting, party scene Croatia has become known for, and a visit outside the popular summer months will reveal this fact. Boasting four UNESCO heritage distinctions, Hvar is celebrating its 150th anniversary of organized tourism this year.
