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!

VISITING HVAR TOWN IN WINTER PART TWO

Hello dear readers and/or fellow bloggers. Today I'm back with the part two of my visit to Hvar city. Today I'll show you a bit more of this city. This time I'm taking you a bit further away, to fully explore the beautiful promenade this town has to offer. If you take a close look, you'll be able to spot all the historical attractions, such as the fortress of Hvar, the city cathedral and so on in the background. The walking areas on both sides of the city are simply stunning, with lots of tropic and Mediterranean greenery among which you will notice palm trees, giant agava plants and cacti.  How's life treating you? I've been feeling under the weather. I have a nasty throat infection (hard thing to recover from when you talk for a living) and I've been down with fever for the last few days but I haven't missed a single day at work because this is such a busy period for me and I don't see how I can take any days off. I'm drinking ginger tea by t…

READING UPDATE: R. ZELANZY, K. HOSSEINI AND ARTO PAASILINA

It has been a while since my last reading update, hasn't it? I love writing book reviews and you seem to like reading them so I'm back with a new reading update. Today I'll share book reviews for three very different novels with you. The first one is a science fiction novel written by two North American writers. This novel doesn't take itself too seriously and is a fun read. The second book recommendation is a bestseller: an emotional novel  by an Afghan-American writer and doctor.  The third novel I reviewed a dark comedy novel by a Finish author. I'm also going to show you a few ways to wear a cherry print dress in winter. Scroll down to see and read more!


IF AT FAUST YOU DON'T SUCCEED BY ROGER ZELANZY AND ROBERT SHECKLEY 4/5 If at Faust You Don't Succeed is a religious satire of sorts, so it might be offensive to some who are easily offended. That being said, I think it's a great novel. I do like how Roger can make fun of religious concepts but at the …

VISIT BAY PRAPATNA ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME!

Exploring island Hvar is turning into a new hobby of mine. I love discovering new destinations on this island and sharing them with you. Today I'm taking you to bay Prapatna. Located about 10 kilometers from Jelsa, this beautiful bay has it all: a stunning beach, wonderful views, lots of greenery and crystal clear water. There are two main ways to get to this bay: one is by car (just take a turn from a main road) and the other is by boat. 
HR Istraživanje otoka Hvara se pretvara u novi hobby za mene. Volim otkrivati nove destinacije na ovom otoku i dijeliti ih sa vama. Danas vam vodim u uvalu Prapatnu. Ova prekrasna uvala smještena je oko deset kilometara od Jelse, a čini mi se da ima sve: predivnu plažu, divan pogled, puno zelenila i kristalno čisto more. Postoje dva glavna načina na koji možete doći do nje: jedan je autom (samo skrenite kada vidite znak na glavnoj cesti), a drugi je brodom.
