Pakleni Otoci, Hvar

(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Must go, if you are visiting Hvar. I recommend Palmizana island, very nice beaches.
  • Pretty little island. Basically a yacht club, mooring point. Crazy vegetation, smallish beach but plenty of swim points.
  • Rent a boat and take it out to the islands. Keep going past the Carpe Diem crowds and rental yachts until you find your own private cove for relaxing and swimming. The fish are plentiful and water is so clear you can always see the bottom. The sea gulls may not like your presence, but there is no better place to relax.
  • I have visited the island with our rent catamaran. Peaceful place.
  • Beautiful island.
