Welcome to the website of Sućuraj
Sućuraj, a small picturesque tourist and fishermen's town and port, is the most eastern settlement on the island of Hvar (central Dalmatia, Croatia), and is also nearest to the mainland. The history of Sućuraj is very turbulent, of which there are many documents and monuments. Thanks to its position, the village has a coastline on both sides of the island. Everyone who finds themselves in Sućuraj and wants to spend the day swimming and sunbathing can choose one of the many sand, pebble or rocky beaches near the town. The sea is crystal clear and the temperature is pleasant for bathing from May all through October. Visitors can find accommodation in private apartments, holiday and boarding houses, rooms or a (motor)-campsite. There are several shops in the town and also restaurants and bars. There is also an elementary school, infirmary with the heliport for emergencies, a post office, hairdressing salon, currency exchange office, ATM, port authority office...

The Island of Hvar is one of a group of central Dalmatian islands and is the longest Croatian island, populated from early historic times.

This island is attractive for tourists because of its clean beaches and bays, unspoiled nature, lots of sun, olive oil and wine and especially for its hospitable hosts.
03 July 2014 ♦ New Sućuraj homepage
For the last few months we have been working on the project of "new Sućuraj homepage", in the aiming to modernise our work and present out Sućuraj with more quality. The project consists of changing the website structure, most of the text and the technology use in making the site. Many new photographs were added which fallow the text on most of the pages.
The work on the project isn't completely over. Some parts of the site still function on the old platform (accommodation), some are unfinished and there are probably some mistakes, so we ask our visitors to acknowledge that. If anyone should notice any mistakes, or has an objection we ask them to write to us on our e-mail or our Facebook page. We hope that you will all be happy with this project.
Remark: this site is made by Yoomle 3.3.0 so the site viewed from old versions of Internet Explorer (8 and older) which do not support css3 and html5 will look messed up. According to our statistics in the last month about 7% of our visitors still use the mentioned old versions of IE so we ask you, if you are in this group, to install newer versions of IE or some other browser. The site if flexible and adapts to devices of different resolution, so it should look neat even if viewed on tablets or smart phones, what wasn't the case before.
Authors of Sućuraj homepage salute you
