Ferries to Hvar Island

The Croatian island of Hvar is located to the south west of the country off the Dalmatian coast and is around six kilometres from the mainland at its closest point.

Like many destinations along the coast of Dalmatia, Hvar Island has become increasingly popular with international holidaymakers in recent years. No doubt attracted by the beautiful beaches and warm climate, Hvar regularly appears in lists of must see islands in travel magazines and websites

Hvar Island has four towns, namely Hvar (town), Sućuraj, Stari Grad and Jelsa. Hvar town, on the west side of the island is the largest town, the main tourist spot and also houses more than a third of the local population. Stari Grad, on the north west side is the second largest town and one of the oldest towns in Europe.

For those travelling by ferry to Hvar Island, connections are currently available across the Adriatic Sea from Italy with a choice of routes operated by a number of well-known ferry companies. The sailing schedule is built around high season meaning that ferries operate only in July and August.

Snav operate the most frequent and fastest crossing which travels between Pescara and Havr town, though this service is foot passenger only. If you want to take a vehicle, then you’ll need to travel from Ancona to Stari Grad.

  • "Excellent ferry journey from Croatia to Italy"

    Ferry check was open very early, easy to check in and fairly short queues. Boarding 1 hour and a half early meant ferry left on time. Easy to board. Staff very helpful on board, helped me to find my cabin. Cabin was comfortable and suited my needs at a very good price. Self service restaurant was used for breakfast - good varied menu and competative prices. Ferry arrived on time and disenbarking was easy. Would recommend to others

  • "Split to Ancona"

    We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of ship. The cabin was larger than we thought it would be. Although basic it had a toilet and shower and the bunks were comfortable with fresh clean sheets. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a lovely way to get to Italy without any hassle.
