If you are looking for something spectacular Pakleni Islands is not your place. Reading the reviews from TripAdvisor I was expecting the islands to be little jewels in the middle of the sea. However, they are just a bunch of rocks with some pines. If you are looking for fun, calm and something new, then this may be your place.... More

There are several destinations you can go to on the Pakleni Islands. We took an afternoon trip from Hvar to Palmižana Beach on the island of Sveti Klement. Though it was a pretty island, it wasn't any more beautiful than the beaches you can find on Hvar and the beach itself was not as nice. Also, the restaurants would not... More

Our budget conscious party of 3 rented out a 5 hp boat for the day for 400 kuna. We set out at 2 p.m. and traversed the northern coast of the archipelago for 4+ hours. We should have rented the boat earlier in the day! Crystal clear waters and with a boat, no matter how modest, we could lay anchor... More

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!
