Hvar Island (unesco heritage)

Hvar lying between the islands of Brac, Vis and Korcula. Approximately 68 km long, with a high east-west ridge of Mesozoic limestone and dolomite. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The climate is characterized by mild winters, and warm summers with many hours of sunshine. Hvar has a typical karst landscape, which means limited or no surface water, despite adequate rainfall, which disappears quickly into crevices in the ground. The southern coast of Hvar near Sveta Nedjelja The island has a typical Mediterranean vegetation, mostly bare with woody scrub at higher, steeper elevations, turning to pine forests on the lower slopes with Holm oak (Orno-Quercetum ilicis), Aleppo pines (Pinus halapensis Mill) and Black pines (Pinus nigra dalmatica). The highest peak is Sv. Nikola, at 628 meters (2,060 ft).

The view there reaches till Biokovo, the islands of Brac, Vis, Korcula and peninsula of Pelješac.
