As suggested, these island were a part of a larger organised trip that we went on. They are very nice islands and are maintained well in that the water is crystal clear and there's not much litter around.

Re-visited Croatia after many years absence – my, it's got busy! We sailed at the end of the season, and we were unlucky with the unexpectedly wet/windy weather, but everywhere was packed. No chance in mooring outside Hvar, so hopped across to Pakleni and opted...More
