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!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ BY L.FRANK BAUM (BOOK REVIEW)

Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…
