A marvelous boat ride that cuts the heat of the day and then chair rentals (helpful if you are "getting on in years") and an even more fantastic restaurant just up the stairs from one of the beaches (Zori). Doesn't get much better than that. We were fortunate to get a table at Zori. I didn't realize you needed to... More

These islands are like the diamonds of the Adriatic. The two that we visited were Milna and Palmizana and both offer clear water, amazing beaches and great restaurants and cafes. Highly recommended!

We've been to a couple of beaches on it. Nice indeed but way over-touristy, especially Plamazana (did i get it right?).

Its possible to hire a "self drive" motor boat in Hvar and spend the day touring the islands. The best deals are from the people standing on the harbour quay and they offer a variety of boats of different sizes. I do have a skippers licence but have never been asked for it and this is a great way to... More

Our group of nine had a small private boat, which took us on a tour of the Pakleni islands. We dropped in to Stipanska, Mlini and Palmizana, where we swam in crystal clear water. We had a sensational lunch on Palmizana at Meneghello restaurant. Perched high above the beach, the restaurant sits in the midst of botanic-like gardens. Our table... More

This is a nice place for swimming in the coves and the nude beach is another nice option. The water is quite cold. Travel here by the cheapest means from the Hvar harbor. The islands do not warrant a private expedition.

We hired a small boat and took ourselves around the stunning islands. The whole thing was exquisite! The islands are stunning and around every corner is a secluded spot where you can anchor and swim alone, away from other tourists. It wasn't at all crowded, although we stayed away from the busy main beaches and restaurant areas as we packed... More

We loved spending the day here and we went to Laganini Beach. Amazing service, comfy beds, great food and drink and chilled vibe! More pricey than other islands but I felt it was totally worth every penny! Get there early e.g. on first boat from Hvar, if not before if you can!!
