Took the ferry across and enjoyed a few hours swimming. Probably wouldn't go again, Hvar has some fabulous beaches so no need to venture further afield.

I stopped off at these islands as part of a kayaking tour. Cute islands with pebbly beaches and excellent places to stop off for lunch if you own your own boat. That said, I think these islands are slightly over rated. You get similar pebbly beaches and restaurants across the Croatia coastline.

Take a kayak tour to these islands if you can. Beautiful with the best swimming in the clearest waters.

Great place to navigate your boat around - or to take a taxi boat from town to. Got it all, from your own little bay to be for yourself, nudist beach, Carpe Diem party place to an surprising little cafe put in a place looking like the one in Thailand called "The Beach". Rocky beaches, not sand.

If borried or tired by the lively atmosphere of the Hvar city this is the place to go, just couple of minutes in the water taxi that can be picked next to the main square and you can bath in a splendid bay filled with clean blue-green water and surrounded by pinias

It doesn't matter what part you go to you have to get out here for a swim in the most gorgeous sea ever. Take some sea shoes so the rocks don't hurt.

Took a cave tour today, and had a stop on some of the islands. Beautiful place for friends, solo travelers, and family. Do it!

Rented a boat from Hvar harbour and spent the day pootling around the Pakleni islands, including snorkelling at our own private beach, eating wonderful food at Mlini beach and enjoying great cocktails at Toto's. A fab day out.

Hire a small boat yourself and take it to the islands where you can moor up. The scenery is arguably even more beautiful than Hvar itself and many of the islands are very quiet and a great way to have a peaceful relaxing day. Some of the islands have restaurants where you can stop for lunch.
