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.

  • Nothing like the Adriatic for the ultimate plunge pool. A bit of a current running so noodles & rope with float well used but didn't detract from such a magical experience. The views all around when.....  more »
  • There are several islands you can visit by boat, which leaves the town harbour every couple of hours. Beautiful wild beaches and turquoise waters. There is a cafe and/or restaurant on each island.  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
