Visiting Sućuraj (Suchuray), Island Hvar: What Do You Need To Know?


Today I'm going to talk a bit about Suchuray (spelled Sućuraj in Croatian), a small touristic city and port located on island Hvar. I'm going to provide you with a bit of information about this place as well as some travel tips. Suchuray is so close to the mainland (5 km), that a ferry ride from Drvenik typically takes less than half an hour. I once vowed that I will swim this distance some day, but as I've just found out that swimming might not be good for scoliosis, so I'll need to rethink that. Anyhow, there are less than 400 inhabitants living in this town. The placement of this town is fantastic,it has a coast line on both sides of the island. Basically, the city is facing both the mainland and the the sea (since Croatia's coastline is island abundant, you can always expect the 'sea view' to include islands). Moreover, there is an abundance of sand, peddle or rocky beaches to choose from. The sea is crystal clear, so that's always nice. You can also do a one day thing, catch the ferry, and go back to the mainland the same day.

 I would definitely recommend the island experience (any island) to everyone visiting Croatia. It is up to you to decide whether or not you want to take the car with you. Like everywhere, a car will always give you more possibilities, and it is always good to consider renting a car. The ferry ticket from Drvenik to Suchuray is a lot more affordable it being, as I said, a short distance. Typically (and I'm sure this is the case everywhere) the price of the ferry ticket depends on the duration and the length of the ferry ride. You can check out my post about Drvenik here. We actually missed a ferry because there wasn't enough place, this is something to think about. If you are going with a car, make sure you park your car (get in the car line) ahead of time so that you have a guaranteed place in the ferry.

Suchuray is a town most visitors/tourist heading for this side of the island get to see, because it is one of the few ports where the ferry docks. Basically, if you want to take your car to island Hvar, you have two options. Either you catch a ferry docking at Split city and arrive to Starigrad city, or you take a ferry at Drvenik  port (check my last visit here) and arrive at Suchuray. There are catamaran rides to other cities on island Hvar, such as Hvar and Jelsa. Moreover, you can also catch a ferry from island Brach (Croatian spelling Brač) and some other places. There are a lot of ferry rides and you can also consider private charter lines. All the information should be easily available online, but if you have any questions, you can always ask me.  I'm not sure what is going on with flights to island Hvar, or whether they will be available this year. There were regular hydroplanes flights in the previous years, but I'm not sure whether that particular  company will continue providing air transport this year. Hvar island doesn't have an official airport like island Brach (Brač), but there is a small airport for smaller planes (in case you're a plane owner).

Suchuray was first inhabited by Illyrians, an ancient European tribe that has merged with the Slavic, Greek and Albanian tribes centuries ago and wasn't preserved as a separate ethnic identity and culture. In a way they are still with us, because we carry their gene code. Modern science and genetics figured that out. History being what it is, this island has often changed 'owners', that is, it belonged to different states and kingdoms, but that can be said for a lot of cities in Europe. Yes, European history is very dynamic. You know, I'm sometimes mistaken for a historian, but I actually studied languages and literature. The thing is that when you study languages and literature, you also study history. The two go hand in hand, so perhaps that is where I get my interest in history. Yes, it is quite possible that my studies increased my interest in history. Anyway, the history of this place is pretty interesting. The accommodation in Suchuray is mostly private accommodation, apartments, holiday boarding houses and so on. There are plenty of restaurants, taverns and shops to choose from. You won't find any five stars hotels though, so if there is what you're looking for, drive on until you get to Jelsa, Starigrad or Hvar city. Now, about the outfit. You have actually seen this outfit before here as I wore it for my (very) short visit to island Hvar (you can read that post here). These photographs were taken as we were waiting for the ferry. You can literally see the ferry in the background. In case you are considering visiting Croatia, do consider visiting one of Croatia's many island. I find that island experience is always something special .Let me know if you'd have found this post helpful or interesting. In case you're interested, I can prepare more posts about Suchuray and island Hvar in the future. Thank you for reading. Have a nice day!

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
