Better than the city, Hvar is a must visit if you are in Split. Doable in a day-trip, we left in the morning and took the two-hour ferry to Stari Grad. Our goal, however, was Hvar town. We took a quick bus and then immediately headed for one of the many beaches. The water is crystal-clear and amazingly refreshing. These days are getting hotter and hotter, and hitting the beach is practically a necessity.
After a couple of hours of swimming, we explored Hvar town. Idyllic.
