driving in Hvar

Hello - how far a drive across the island is it from Sucuraj to Hvar town? I realize it's only about 45k but how much time does it take as I hear the roads aren't great? Also, is there a place to leave a car if we want to travel to other islands for a few days?

Thank you!!

No, the distance is some 80km , as Hvar and Sućuraj are on the opposite sides of the island, and Hvar is the longest island.

If you are not used to narrow roads it could take more than1h 45mins.Actually the road between Jelsa and Hvar is much better, just don't go to the old road to Hvar as it would take even much longer.Btw.the old road Jelsa Hvar is very scenic.

You will always find some place to leave your car somewhere outside the town. In town centre there is an expensive parking.

Good to know. Questions:

1) How much (euros) is taking a car by ferry from Split to Hvar ?

2) How much Car in Ferry from Sucuraj to Drevnik ?

3) What time do these ferries leave ? Is it possible to enter Hvar (coming from Split) in the morning and leave by Sucuraj in the afternoon ?

Thanks

All the prices and timetables are on the www.jadrolinija.hr site, Drvenik much cheaper than Stari Grad. Click the Eng flag for Eng text.,

Yes,it is doable to take the early ferry to Stari Grad and the last from Suićuraj to Drvenik
