Pakleni Otoci, Hvar

4.5
#1 of 9 in Parks in Hvar
Island Nature / Park
Pakleni Otoci offers many peaceful coves for diving, underwater fishing, swimming, and water sports. The name is popularly translated as Hells' islands, but it originally derives from "paklina," an archaic word, meaning "tar." The islands are especially popular with visitors who have smaller yachts. If you're such a visitor, moor your boat in the Palmizana marina and watch the waves wash onto the sandy cove surrounded by pine forests. Go scuba diving near Vodnjak--the island the mayor wanted to rename Facebook. For a lovely dinner, head to Galesnik, a former artillery fort-turned-eco-island. The islands are full of naturist beaches, which feature showers and charming shops. Use our Hvar vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Pakleni Otoci and other attractions in Hvar.

  • There are many bays, the water is clear, it's opposite the city of Hvar, a nice view of the whole of the islands of Hvar town

  • These islands are beautiful, the color of the sea is a beauty. It is worth renting a boat and go walking by each one of them, but remember, don't think I will find a beach with white sand, this doesn't exist, are all made of stone.

  • This island is a waste of time to visit. We were sold the tour as 20mins at a lagoon (spent 2 hours there), 3 hours at Palmizana with access to the 'wonderful sandy beach' of which we were shown a pho...  more »

  • A beautiful island. We arrived by boat so we had the opportunity to anchor in a small quite bay with only a few more boats. The water is crystal clear with fantastic surroundings. The main bay was very different, many young people with bars and restaurants.
  • Visited Palmizana, nice and quiet out of season. Not much to see or do here but a has a great vibe.
  • Amazing place! A bit pricey to eat but it attracts wealthy people anyway from the looks of it.
  • Took ages for our food to come. Had to ask for ketchup several times before anyone come. Portions of Pomme Frites was very small and the desert of apple strudel was not nice. When we complained the man who called himself the manager was very ignorant.
  • A little bit more overcrowded and over-developed than I would have liked.

Where to stay in Hvar

The island of Hvar caters to well-heeled travelers, so expect high prices and few bargain beds near the sea, especially at peak season. Stari Grad and Hvar Town draw the biggest crowds, though neither town offers budget-friendly hotels. Don't be put off by this, as you can find modestly priced accommodations in the form of private apartments rented by local families. If you've come to Hvar to splurge, check out the island's luxury hotels, with airy rooms, sea views, and access to private beaches.
