Going from Dubrovnik to Hvar THIS SATURDAY. Need help!

by kathryn82

I fly into Dubrovnik on Friday night and need to get to Hvar sometime Saturday. I am finding the ferry schedules quite confusing. What are my options this Saturday (excluding driving)?

Thank you for your help!!

If I am reading the schedule correctly the Ferry doesn't stop at Hvar (Stari Grad) this Saturday -- so you would have to take the 7:15 AM Bus from Dubrovnik which gets into Split at 11:20 AM. Then either take the 2:00 PM Catamaran to Hvar Town (arrives 2:45) or the 2:30 PM Ferry to Stari Grad (arrives 4:15).

The bus goes right to the port.

Bus site is www.croatia.hr/english

The schedule is confusing. You do save a lot of time by taking the bus to Split and it's very scenic.

Dino is right - the Dubrovnik -Hvar ferry does not sail on Saturday so you will need to take a bus to Split but the 7am bus isn't your only option - the 8am bus wil get you to Split at 12.25, the 9am bus at 13.30. The bus companies all keep very good time so the 8am bus will see you arrive in Split in time to catch the both the catamaran and the ferry and the 9am bus wil cetainly have you there in time for the 1430 ferry The bus station is right by the ferry port.

The Dubrovnik bus station is in the port area of Gruz, a 15-20 minute bus ride out of the centre of the city. It might be a good idea to go there on Friday evening to buy your ticket - the buses are very popular and can be sold out.

If you change departure from DU to Sunday, there is ferry at 7 am arriving to Stari Grad in the afternoon at 4pm.

Travel Tips for Hvar

Drink for free

by poisons

It's used in the local pubs, to give the barman a little money everytime you take something, for you only or for all your friends. The first time you pay. The second time you pay. The third time the barman offers the drink to you.

Vis Island

by mvtouring

Still largely tourist free, the main settlements on the island is Vis town and Komiza which is connected by the asphalt road. Fishing is the main source of income on the island.
Vis is the most westerly of the larger Croatian islands, at 24 miles from the mainland, and its area is 56 square miles (90 square km). The island is quite easily reachable with a fast boat service from Split. Vis is the oldest established town in Dalmatia, founded in 397 B.C. by the ruler of Sicily, Dionysius - the Latin name for the island is Issa. In World War II, the island was major base for British troops stationed there and there is a British military cemetery on the island. After 1945, Vis was closed to tourism by the Yugoslav army and only reopened when Croatia declared its independence in 1990. Some of the most exclusive wines in Croatia are produced there, such as Plavac and Vugava.

H'var can you go?

by TheWanderingCamel

To the end of the island, where the little town of Sucuraj sits on either side of a small harbour, cafes and konobas facing each other across the quaysides and a church on each bank. Hvar is 52 km long, the road from Hvar Grad to Jelsa is good but from Jelsa to Sucuraj it becomes narrow, winding and not all that well-maintained but it offers some wonderful views of the coast, the beaches and the island of Brac on the other side of the Hvar Channel as it makes its way up and down the hills and around the bays before straightening out a little to continue on through the villages strung out along its length. The abandoned village of Humac is just a few hundred yards off the road and worth a stop. Along the way you'll find stallholders offering local produce, wine and lavender products. Travel this way on a Sunday and the village churches will be busy.

Once you reach Sucuraj there's only one way back - along the road you came by - or you could take the ferry across to the mainland, a handy option if you're driving and heading south towards Dubrovnik.

Don't miss the fresh seafood

by Venturingnow about Paradies Garten (I think)

A good location in the old town, up on the pathway leading towards the castle. This place was recommended in my guidebook for it's unique white wine and garlic sauce seafood and pasta dish. All I know is that it had a heck of a lot of octopus, snails, mussels, clams, and shrimp, all of which were really good. My suggestion is that you get this and a cheesy baked potatoe, it's all good.

perfect sunset view...

by marktynernyc about Two Fisherman

Great view of the town and harbor - try a get a table during sunset. Ordered a plate of dalmation ham, locally made cheese and a liter of house white.
Decide to try the lamb which was okay - maybe a little over cooked. But the view is great. The lemon ice cream was a nice a finish.
