If you can afford the expense of renting a boat for the day, the Pakleni Islands (often translated as Hell's Islands) is a beautiful trip. The sea is crystal clear and beautifully warm. It wouldn't be difficult to find a more secluded beach where you...More

We took a taxi boat over to the islands was dropped off then had a lovely walk through some woods to a fantastic sandy beach. Reasturants and bars are available but can be a little pricey.

We had a boat trip to the blue cave and finished the day in the Pakleni island. The sea was transparent, excellent for swimming and there were good restaurants; pricy but excellent food.

We visited many of the Pakleni islands and loved every one of them. They are a paradise and the crystal clear waters are perfectly clean and aqua blue. After traveling all over the world they surely must be the most naturally beautiful in all Europe
