Dalmatian islands are some of the most perfect vacation spots you'll ever find. When vacationing in Makarska Riviera, make sure you take at least one tour of the islands during your stay. You will not regret it.
The closest one to Makarska is the island of Brac. Right across the sea, around an hour away via ferry. Brac is famous for its Golden Horn beach (Croatian: Zlatni Rat), for top-quality extra virgin olive oil, and for the snow-white limestone that built the lobby of the United Nations building in New York, the Pope’s altar in Vatican, Diocletian’s palace in Split and allegedly even the White House in Washington.
The next one is Hvar. We know, it's difficult to pronounce (sounds something like 'Quaar') but it's much worth the trip. Island Hvar is the sunniest island in Croatia, with 2718 hours of sunshine a year. That's more than 113 days a year! With God-given sun, sea, and salt, Hvar offers a perfect setting for growing lavander and producing wine. And the people make sure they do just that. In the eyes of tourists, Hvar is a popular and posh vacation hotspot, and many guests who visit are celebrities and royalty.
But you don't have to be a celeb to visit Hvar and enjoy the same perks that they do – many coves and tiny islands offer all the luxury and privacy you will need. If you're staying on Makarska Riviera, Hvar is most easily accessed from Drvenik ferry harbour. From there, you're in Sucuraj on Hvar in merely half and hour. Enjoy it! #islands #hvar #brac
