Trip Planner: Europe / Croatia / Dalmatia / Split-Dalmatia County / Hvar Island / Hvar / Pakleni Otoci
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.

Pakleni Otoci reviews
We took a tour and saw several of the islands. Really cool rocks, interesting landscape and fantastic restaurants, clubs and beach bars. Was fun! more »
Take a taxi boat from Hvar and enjoy an entire day at Jerolin which offers a relaxed environment with crystal clear water. Next stop Carpe diem for food and drinks. more »
Many great places ideal for swimming
We had a great onward speed boat ride (Blue Shark company). The blue water caves were wonderful. The return boat ride was too bumpy and the skipper would not reduce speed hoping it would make the ride enjoyable
