Extraordinary scenery, crystal blue water and stunning beaches ... all part of the Pakleni Islands experience. Just ten minutes by boat from Hvar you can choose Jerolim or Carpe Diem beaches if you want to party or chill out with some good food, drinks and music. Or head over to the delightful Palmizana which has an amazing selection of restaurants... More

we got a taxi boat to Jerolim and never made it anywhere else. It was so amazing - quiet and peaceful. The beach is FKK, but there was plenty of space for finding your own little bit of rocks so swim from, so you don't really notice it so much. The restaurant there is also nice.

We took the 'pakleni islands full day private boat trip from hvar town' booked through viator (taxi-delmar / watertaxi-hvar.com) It was amazing, the best way to experience the islands if you're looking for a super chilled day. It's expensive and will set you back but amazing for a special occasion. The skipper Mate, knows everyone and we stopped off beside... More

I would not suggest this island for a relaxing cultural vacation as its all Americans and British and they send hundreds of people over on boats from hvar with a promise of sandy beaches to be disappointed and crowding the thin strip of water front in search of a rock to perch their towel on. Very disappointed in spending money... More

We visited different parts of Pakleni islands on 3 different days and they are worth having a look at if you want to escape the busy town. The water taxi's cost 40 Kuna return and take a maximum of 30 minutes to get to the furthest island. There are no sandy beaches and you will have to pay between 30-50... More

You can not visit Hvar, Croatia without either renting a boat of your own or hoping on a taxi boat or taking a boat tour of pakleni islands!! I personally recommend renting your own boat so you have more freedom. You can take your time & visit as many or as few islands/ beaches as you wish. Renting a boat... More

This Island has some beautiful coffee bars located right on the beach. This place is just a short water taxi ride from Havr. Highly recommended for evening coffee / drinks.

Pakleni islands are a must for any trip to hvar - from the relaxing beach club at Carpe Diem, the great bays to swim in and the great restaurants on Palmizana

When in Hvar, we rented a speedboat and spent the day exploring the islands. Many bays and coves to explore - from quiet, isolated ones to busy ones packed with sailboats and yachts. We enjoyed Pelna, a small cove with sandy beach just east of Palmiziana Bay. Good for swimming and snorkeling.

We managed to hike each island quite thoroughly. The largest island Saint Klement has Roman Villa Rustica from 1st - 6th century. Amazing wide open and unprotected, we found it by hiking from Palmizana to Vlaka and around the back of the vineyard. Be sure to pick up a Pakleni Islands map at the tourist information office in Hvar. Taxi... More
