1. Scale Vidova gora
The highest point of all the islands in the Croatian Adriatic, Vidova gora is a satisfying and signposted walk from Bol on the south coast of the island. Setting out from Donje Podbarje at the north-western edge of the town centre, hikers make the steady, sturdy trek up to the peak of 778 metres (2,552 feet), a three-hour jaunt, the views becoming more and more impressive. From the top you can see Hvar and the Croatian mainland, best observed with a beer from the summer-only bar, equipped with a handy picnic table.
