About Pakleni islands

Archipelago of small islands reached by taxi boat from Hvar. Stay in cottages on Sveti Klement and eat at magical Meneghello restaurant

Tranquil and busy, natural and trendy. South west of Hvar Town and very close to it there are seventeen small islands called "Pakleni". They are full of beaches and covered in pine woods and tropical plants. The fresh scent of pine resin, which in Hvar dialect is called "paklina" permeates the air and that’s how the islands got their name - the pine scented islands. All islands are car free. The closest island is Jerolim where you can swim on a naturist beach and there is a small shop. On Galesnik, which is just 300 metres from Hvar you can relax in peace and have a romantic dinner of Dalmatian specialities. In 15 minutes from Hvar you can be in Stipanska bay on the nearby island of Marinkovac. It hosts the very popular Carpe Diem Beach Club which attracts the younger crowd. Zdrilica and Mlini beach are pretty pebbly coves on Marinkovac.
