Travel to Hvar
Ferry transport is very popular means of transport at the coastline. The Croatian coastal towns and cities are served by ferry and ship services. Islands that are inhabited are connected with the mainland and other islands by various ferry services. Off season traveling is restricted, but seasonal (summer) travel routes tend to be more frequent and some of fast hydrofoil/catamaran services are added too.
If you want to reach island Hvar (and don’t have your own boat) you should travel from Split (capital of Dalmatia), Drvenik (small town on Makarska Riviera), Ancona (Italy) or Pescara (Italy) by ferries or catamarans. This is the only way to come to the island. There are daily ferry lines from Split to Stari Grad and from Drvenik to Sucuraj, as well as catamaran lines from Split to Jelsa and from Split to the town of Hvar.
Out of season ferry from Split to Stari Grad sails 3-4 times a day and from Drvenik to Sucuraj 6-7 times. During summer season ferry from Split to Stari Grad sails 4-7 times a day and from Drvenik to Sucuraj 12-20 times. Ferries from Italy sail only during summer season.
