Absolutely fabulous islands. Nature there is made for pure hedonism. Full of clear lagoons for swimming and with traditional restaurants with amazingly tasty traditional sea food.

From the Hvar pier you can flag down any pilot for a 15 min boat ride (10 euro) direct to Pakleni Islands. These are truly unbelievable. The water is so clear you can make out fish swimming near the bottom (~8m below). At the Tri Grede Restaurant choose one of the vibrant colour cushions and lay down over the white... More

great food, great location, great service and great value. Best meal of our holiday. We also visited some of the bars in the bay during the day. This is where the beautiful people hang out. The cocktails are outstanding, the music pumping but great and the atmosphere vibrant!

Hvar is the touristy area but if you want to get away from the crowds and big island you definitely need to rent a boat (which is really affordable) and go island hopping. If you leave from hvar's harbor and go all the way around to the other side of the island there's a cove called like "palmesana" or something... More

From the Hvar pier, any pilot will take you, in a 15 minutes boat ride (10 euro) direct to Pakleni Island. Unbelievable, paradisiac. At the Tri Grede Restaurant choose one of the vibrant colour cushions and lay down over the white gravel beach. Ask your favorite drink and enjoy the most limpid water in the world and the indescriptible landscape.... More

Hvar was our most favorite spot on a vacation to Croatia in 9/13. We had fabulous accommodations with a magnificent view of the sea and the Pakieni Islands. We enjoyed the walkability, shopping and the proximity of boats for hire. Definitely an island to include in a plan to visit the Dalmatian Islands.

This is great way to spend a day. Rent your own boat (from 350kn a day, fits 6people) and go to cruise around these islands. Palmizana is definitely the most popular bay with great beach and couple of good lounge bars!

We rose early for our day of adventure round the Pakleni Islands, quickly making our way to the Hvar harbour to hire our luxury charter..........or tin boat with a small outboard motor which for the equivalent of £40 for the day was an absolute bargain! As we made our way through the beautiful turquoise waters, dodging in and out of... More
