Hvar got sun news for you!


HVAR a gorgeous Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea.


It’s known as the sunniest spot in Europe and even though it’s pretty small it’s one of the busiest Dalmatian islands with hundreds of daytrippers and has the reputation of being the party island.


There’s no need to rush as the holiday never ends in Hvar as it basks in around 115 sunny days each year. In Spring temperatures are already 20C and can reach 30C+ in the summer.


Despite the intense heat, you should climb to the top of the fortress for the best views of the Old Town, across the harbour and neighbouring islands.


Loadsa celebs – Tom Cruise, Orson Welles (not any more) Prince Harry, Beyonce – have been there but most tend to stay on their yachts floating around the other 1,245 nearby islands. Only around 60 are inhabited.


Hvar is just a couple of hours away by boat from Split, Croatia’s second city after the capital Zagreb. Croatia is just a two-and-a-half-hour flight away from the UK.
