Is Hvar Right for Your Group?

Hvar is the perfect blend of relaxation and celebration.

You can chill during the day on one of the many beaches, take on a range of activities, or hit up a beach club before the big nights out.

And when we say big night out, we mean BIG night out - from bar crawls to VIP club nights, you can get the full stag do experience here.

The only reason Hvar might not be a great option is if you're looking for somewhere on a budget.

Whilst there's value to be had here, the cost of getting there can be more expensive than other European destinations, so bear that in mind.

The Best Time to Go

StagWeb's 2023 statistics show that 58% of stags visited between May and July.

And this adds up...

Hvar's weather is outrageous during these months, meaning it's prime time for beach parties and boat cruises.

Also, if you go before the schools break up in late July, you'll save yourselves an absolute fortune.

You can visit outside of these months, but we'd recommend going between May and September as this is when all the best activities run.

How Long Do People Go For?

60% of our stags stayed for 4 days (3 nights).

This allows for two days without travelling, which gives you plenty of time to explore all the island's bars and awesome stag activities.

If you're flying somewhere, you're not going to want to stay somewhere for less than 3 days anyway.

How Soon Do People Book?

One average, guys heading to Hvar with StagWeb book four months before they're due to go.

That gives them enough time to get things in order, however, we'd advise anyone to book as early as possible.


Well, it's simple maths, really:

The earlier you book, the less likely you are to miss out on the best activities, nights out, accommodation, etc.

How to Get to Hvar...

What Airport to Fly To...

Hvar doesn't have its own airport, so you're going to need to fly to Split Airport and make your way over to the island.

A lot of airports in the UK fly here but be sure to check well in advance.

How Long is the Flight from the UK

Depending on where you're flying from in the UK, it takes roughly 2.5-3 hours to fly to Split Airport.

Not bad for the tasty beer, a bouncing nightlife, and stunning scenery.

Getting from the Airport to Hvar

Once you've landed, take a taxi to Split's Ferry Port (24.4km away), which costs around €35-€45 and takes just under half an hour.

You'll then need to hop on the ferry which costs around €37 a ticket and takes up to 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Tips On Getting Around Hvar

Walking - Hvar Town is most definitely walkable, but if you want to go further afield then you may need to consider your options.

Bus - The buses are not frequent, so don't think you can rely on this (unless you plan in advance).

Boat Trips & Water Taxis - Down by the harbour, you'll find a load of boat trips and water taxis that can take you to various points on the island and beyond.

Common Hvar FAQs

Is Hvar good for a stag do?

Hvar is an awesome place for a stag do. It's the perfect mixture of relaxation and celebration with loads of beaches to chill on during the day and loads of bars to hit up at night. It also boasts a great blend of on-land and water-based stag activities. The complete package.

Is Hvar busy in October?

October is a lot quieter than the summer months. We actually wouldn't recommend going outside of the months of May-September as the activities will be stopping for the season and the parties won't be as lively.

Is Hvar cheap?

Hvar is cheap compared to many stag do locations, however, getting there may bump the cost up. Be sure to do some budget planning and have a scout around for cheap flights, plus transfers to Hvar.

Can you drink in public in Hvar?

In Hvar, it is against the law to drink on the streets outside of a bar, restaurant, or club. You may be fined up to €700 (£620), so respect the rules and keep the drinks to licenced establishments only.

What alcohol is popular in Hvar?

The local drink, Rakija, is a fruit brandy. It's pretty strong, so brace yourselves. Many local restaurants brew Rakija themselves, so always ask when you stop off for some food. Also, Croatia makes many tasty beers, so give the local brews a taste, too!
