If you are planning on spending some time on the exotic resort-island Hvar here is the list of all the possible ways to get there depending on your location.
The best way to get to the island is of course to fly to Croatia. There are two international airports in Croatia: in Split and in Dubrovnik. Here is an explanation how to get to Hvar from both of these locations.
The easiest way to get to Hvar is from Split, the city in the South of Croatia on the Adriatic coast. There are ferries that run from Split harbor to Stari Grad or fast catamarans from Split to the other side of the island, Hvar Port.
In a low season (like winter) there are usually three trips a day from Split to Hvar. In the high season (June – August) there can be up to six trips every day.
If you travel with your car you will have to take a ferry to Stari Grad. In high season make sure to secure a car spot for yourself. For those who travel without a car you have options to get to Stari Grad or Hvar Town. There are usually no problems with boarding a ferry or a catamaran.
In case you want to have a day trip to this island it is better to get there by the fast catamaran. There are a few other islands (Brac, Vis) that you can hop on using a catamaran.
You can buy tickets in a local sales point at the Split harbor.
Drevnik is a perfect location for those who want to get to Hvar and are coming from Makarska or Dubrovnik. Currently the route from Drevnik to Sucuraj (Hvar) is served by one company (Jadrolinija) that has 11 journeys (Drevnik – Sucuraj) per day and 6 journeys a day in the low season.
The journey time is just 35 minutes and it is another way to get to Hvar with your own vehicle.

There are some international ferries that come to Hvar from Italy. The ferry from Ancona to Stari Grad (Hvar) runs once a week in high season in the low season the route doesn’t run. Journey time is 14 hours and ticket costs for foot passengers range from 278 Kn to 323 Kn. On this ferry you are allowed to board with cars, bikes, and pets. Although the ferry stops at Stari Grad on the way to Split, you need to know that there is no border control on the island just in Split.
