The island of Hvar is located about 80km from Split and is one of the favorite spots of tourists visiting Croatia. Due to its popularity, the island is swarming with people between the summer months of July and September, but if you are lucky enough to come earlier, April is a great month and prices are lower. The island is known under the name of Pharos in Greek and Italian Lesina. It is part of the administrative region of Split. To get there, you take a ferry from Jadrolinja, there are faster ones only carry passengers, so you can do this and just walk back, but considering that the island is not small, it is wise for you to go with a car.
