The island of Hvar is located in the Adriatic Sea, off the Dalmatian coast. To the north, the island of Brac lies across the Hvar Channel (Hvarski kanal), to the west is Vis, separated by the Vis Channel, and to the south Korcula lies across the Korcula Channel, while the Peljesac Peninsula is across the Neretva Channel.
The island has a typical Mediterranean vegetation, mostly bare with woody scrub at higher, steeper elevations, turning to pine forests on the lower slopes with Holm oak (Orno-Quercetum ilicis), Aleppo pines (Pinus halapensis Mill) and Black pines (Pinus nigra dalmatica). The islet of Šcedro is especially rich in various Mediterranean trees and plants.
