You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Dubovica Beach and Pokonji Dol Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Mlini Beach and Franciscan Monastery. And it doesn't end there: step off the mainland to explore Jerolim, learn about winemaking at Tomic Winery, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and take some stellar pictures from Spanjola.

You can plan Hvar trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Sacramento, USA to Hvar is an approximately 20.5-hour combination of car and flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Sacramento to Hvar due to the time zone difference.
