If you are intrigued by this, all you have to do is book your appointment, fill up your suitcases and decide on the type of transportation to Dalmatia. An airplane is always the best option because it offers you a pleasant trip and quick arrival to your destination. And when you arrive at the Split airport, it would be best for you to choose a shuttle service to the island that will start your enjoyment of the sunshine holiday two hours from the departure from the Split airport.
To get to the Amfora Hotel you have two options. The first is to take a taxi to the ferry port, with which you will lose at least 45 minutes during the summer crowds. Arriving at the ferry port, you choose between the ferry and catamaran lines, and if you are lucky enough to arrive just before you set sail, then you will lose another two hours to the island of Hvar. If you are not so lucky, you will wait another half hour, up to an hour before boarding the ship. Of course, then the boat will take you to the Old Town, so you will still have to drive up to 25 kilometers of Hvar and your destination of the Hotel Amfora. Once you’ve calculated everything, it will take you at least four hours to get to the hotel, which is four hours less to lie on the beach and enjoy the sun.
Another option is to rent a water taxi speedboat, a comfortable, organized shuttle service to the dock in front of the Amfora Hotel itself. After leaving the plane, train or boat, you will be greeted by the driver and taken to the dock for the water speed taxi boat, located just minutes away from the airport. Rest assured that your transfer will be safe, comfortable and fast with speedboat service, and during the trip you will be able to enjoy the scenes, sounds and scents of the Adriatic from the moment you arrive in Split.
After only 60 minutes of pleasant ride, the speedboat will take you to Hvar where the skipper will drop you off at the dock near your hotel. During the drive to Hvar you will have a wonderful panoramic drive between the islands of Brac and Solta, and before entering Hvar you will pass by the most famous archipelago of the Pakleni islands.
Water taxi offers you a fast, comfortable and safe ride and allows you to start your vacation as soon as possible from the arrival of the plane to the Split airport and to the storage of your suitcase in your hotel room.
