Hire a boat or book a tour to navigate around the clear waters and forest lined coast. Depending on your disability type and level, snorkeling and swimming are options here though the scenery from land is also impressive and a great place to sit and relax in the sun. Then, after a day out on the beach stop at one of the many fine seafood restaurants that get their stock right from the water! Taking a cruise will allow you to see the most features of the island from the comfort of a wheelchair friendly boat. The tours are leisurely and will give you time to take pictures and enjoy the scenery.

Not only is Hvar fortress an example of must-see architecture, it also offers some of the most spectacular views of the island. Go up to the first lookout to see much of the island, or, if you’re up for it, you can also go all the way to the top for an even better view. Disabled access is possible because you can drive to the top. From here, you will get a spectacular view though some parts of the fortress itself may not be accessible for wheelchair users.
Sip and Savor the Island of Wine
Hvar’s winemaking history dates all the way back to the ancient Greeks so they’ve perfected a few things, to say the least! Tour one of their lush vineyards and sample both reds and whites that are only produced on the island. Hvartours offers half-day and full day wine tours which are considered to have accessibility for disabled persons and wheelchair users and will provide a welcoming and inclusive experience for all wine lovers.
