Sailing along Pakleni islands

The Pakleni Islands are a chain of rocky islets just off the coast of Hvar. This beautiful archipelago is a popular trip as it offers some of the most breathtaking beaches and the best snorkeling in Croatia.

The Pakleni Islands Archipelago is about 10 km (6.2 mi) long and consists of 14 islands or islets. The 3 most popular and interesting of these islands are Sveti Klement, Marinkovac, and Jerolim.

Across the Hvar Strait, on the Pakleni Islands Archipelago, you’ll find picturesque coves, stunning beaches, hip bars, and beautiful nature. The Pakleni Islands, also referred to as Paklinski Islands, are the perfect place to bask in the Mediterranean sun, swim in the clear Adriatic waters, and have what many believe is very good time. These islands are, after all one of the most popular day trips from Hvar!

The name Paklinski Otoci is often translated as Hell or Hells’ island, but it is actually derived from paklina, an archaic name for a kind of a pine resin used to waterproof boats that was once harvested on the Pakleni archipelago.

If you feel ready to set sail, a trip to the Pakleni Islands may be just what you’ve been searching for.
