Biokovo Mountain
Suitable for walking and hiking, with Vosac peak (142m) only 1.8 miles from Makarska city centre (a well signposted route). From Vosac, it takes two hours along another well marked path to Sveti Jure (St. George), the highest peak in the area at 1,762 metres.

The mountain has a profusion of wild flowers and plants. One of the better known types of geranium (called Biokovo) comes from here.

The mountain is also well known for its caves.

Hvar is the fourth largest island at 182 square miles (300 square km). It is even sunnier than Brac, with almost 2,800 hours of sunshine per year. However, there is enough rain to keep the island green and to maintain the beautiful fields of lavender, rosemary, sage, marjoram and thyme and the carefully cultivated vineyards. Many people remark that in the spring, Hvar smells like a herbalist shop! When in Hvar, you must purchase some lavender oil, which is the major export of the island.

The hoteliers on the island pride themselves on consistently good weather - if there is more than four hours of rain per day, they give a reduction on your stay and if snow falls (which happens once a year, on average) your stay is free!

The main resorts are Hvar Town, Stari Grad, Vrboska, Jelsa and Sucuraj.

As some of you may have read, many people have left comments on our message board saying how much they enjoyed their stay on the island. So it comes highly recommended!

One of the most accessible islands in the Croatian Adriatic - ferries run almost every hour from Split to Supetar (with bus connections on to other resorts). There is also a small airport near the resort of Bol, with several flights a week from Zagreb in the summer. This island is the largest in Central Dalmatia at 150 square miles (394 square km), the third largest in the Adriatic, and is one of the sunniest with 2,700 hours annually. The island is known for its agricultural products and the locals produce good wine, olive oil, figs, nectarines and other fruits. But the main export is, and has been from ancient times, the famous Brac stone from which many buildings in the world have been built, including the White House in Washington D.C. The main resorts are Supetar, Bol - with the most beautiful beach in the Adriatic, the Golden Horn (Zlatni Rat), Sutivan, Milna and Sumartin.
