Inevitably to get the views you need the height so there are a lot of steps from the beach but so worth it! We only used a taxi to get our luggage to the apartment and after that walked up and down to Hvar and the beach. No hesitation in strongly recommending.

Our kids had been backpacking for weeks so enjoyed having some space downstairs to call their own. We would stroll down to get our morning pastries and then spent a lot of time on the balcony soaking up the surroundings and enjoying the clear skies and warm weather. We loved getting our fresh vegetables and figs from a small doorway just down the road, the fresh figs yum. We did the coastal walk to Vrboska (it is 5km) with lots of beautiful areas to stop and swim along the way. This is a beautiful village that has an amazing Wine Festival the last weekend of August, which we were lucky enough to arrive in the midst of, Saturday evening.The street food was incredible, water polo games, music and finished with an amazing fire works display. We would definitely recommend staying here to our friends and hope we can return one day.
