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.

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




#fashionblogger #travel

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 WEAR THE SCARF TREND FOR SPRING? 4 BASIC WAYS

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 




ACCESSORIZING WITH SCARVES
A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…

TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: TROGIR CITY (PART 1)

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…

LAYERING A RED MIDI DRESS WITH RUFFLED SLEEVES FOR SPRING

Good evening lovelies! I've got a couple outfit proposals to share we you. The 'star' of this post is a red midi dress with statement sleeves  I bought last summer. I typically don't do impulse buys, but when I tried on this dress I knew it had to be mine. Have you ever heard of that rule that you shouldn't buy an item if you can't think of at least five ways to wear it? Well, that's a great rule but I decided this dress was worth the buy even if it wasn't the most versatile item. However, now it seems I can think of a five ways to wear it.  Where there is a will there is a way. When I tried this dress on again, I realized that I'll be able to layer it for spring. It needn't be only a summer dress.
1. WITH A VINTAGE HAND PAINTED BLAZER Romantic soul that I am, I simply can't resist a dress that has ruffles. This one has statement sleeves with both ruffles and tassels. It is precisely because of its ruffled statement sleeves that I doubted t…
