Hvar Island travel guide

Lookouts · Nightlife · Islands
Island of the Sun
Hvar Island, "the queen of the Dalmatian islands," draws visitors to its beaches lapped by the crystal blue sea. Croatia's sunniest and longest island offers a mild climate, secluded pebble coves, ancient olive trees, vast lavender fields, and pine-forested hills. An important strategic and nautical point since prehistoric times, the island has been building its unique identity ever since. Experience the flavor of Hvar Island in small inns serving homemade wines, as locals sing old island songs. In contrast, the cosmopolitan Hvar offers luxurious five-star hotels, which can attract celebrities (and drive prices up). For a true Hvar experience, try private accommodations like hostels and apartments at private houses, which can service more diverse crowd. The town is crisscrossed by cobbled streets lined with Venetian palaces and offers exciting nightlife.

Island of the Winds
Local tradition claims that Mykonos, the trendiest of the Cyclades group of islands, came into existence from the petrified bodies of giants killed by the mythological hero Hercules. Named after the grandson of the god Apollo, this cosmopolitan "Ibiza of Greece" offers modern tourists a blend of glamour and simplicity. Be prepared for hip and loud dance clubs along the coastline and quieter areas farther from the water. Avoid cruise ship crowds thronging the narrow streets by exploring the small villages located in the center of the island. The easiest way to discover the island's golden beaches is by guided boat tour, private car, or motorcycle.

Santorini travel guide

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.
