Pakleni Otoci – “Hell’s Islands“ are the prettiest part of Hvar’s, if not of the whole Croatian Riviera. A playful chain of woody isles, dipped in a clear, azure sea, a few resorts and swimming areas, and a number of little, secluded beaches, sun-facing stone terraces, and beautiful deserted lagoons make, as someone said, “An Arcadia in grasp of the palm.”
The legend said that the Paklinski Islands came into existence as a result of a secret love between the sea god Poseidon and a nymph.
Hell's islands are located right across the channel of the Hvar city.
Spend a day away from the crowded beaches, enjoy the sun in the serenity of hidden coves, swim in a clear-blue sea and relax in the untouched nature of the Paklinski Islands. The resorts from the east to the west are: Jerolim, Stipanska, Palmizana, Vlaka. The bay of Palmizana, with its sandy beach, is the most popular spot to visit from Hvar. There are several guest houses and restaurants of superb quality.
