Pakleni Otoci, Hvar

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.

  • We visited the island by renting a boat with friends. It was a great and very relaxing day. The boat is not fast, but it is easy to conduct. You can discover small hidden places of the island according to your desires. We brought diving masks to look at the many fish and underwater life! The boat can accommodate up to 5 people for 450 kn.

  • You can take a taxi boat from hvar. They are very nice islands, although we could not enjoy them much because it did not make very good weather. The landscapes are beautiful. It is important to bring escarpines because part of the beaches are of stones!! It's worth going.
