Pakleni Islands Tours

Pakleni Islands
Just minutes offshore from fashionable Hvar Island along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast lies the Pakleni archipelago (Pakleni Otoci). It’s the perfect destination for an island-hopping tour with 17 beautiful islands fringed by pebble beaches and lush pine forests.

The Basics
The Pakleni Islands can be explored on a speedboat tour from Split or Trojir and an all-day excursion often includes a visit to Hvar Town, Brac Island, or the Blue Cave of Bisevo Island. For a more personalized experience, opt for a private or small-group sailing tour from Hvar, stopping at islands such as Vlaka, Sveti Klement, and Marinkovac, where you can swim and snorkel at hidden coves, or enjoy free time to relax at the beach resorts.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • All of the islands are car-free, and the only way to get around is on foot or by bicycle.
  • Be sure to bring your swimsuit, towel, and sun protection.
  • Some ferries and boat tours to the Pakleni Islands are wheelchair accessible, but it’s best to check with the tour operator in advance.

How to Get There
Located off the southwest coast of the island of Hvar, the Pakleni Islands are only reachable from the water. Passenger ferries connect Hvar to Jerolim, Stipanska, or Palmizana, and taxi boats will also run to many of the other islands in high season. 

When to Get There
The most popular time to visit the Pakleni Islands is during the summer months and boats can fill up quickly in July and August, so be sure to book ahead. It’s possible to visit in the winter months, although ferries and tours are less frequent and may be dependent on the weather. Visiting out of season means you’ll avoid the crowds and have the beaches to yourself, but be aware that the islands will be mostly deserted with few tourist amenities. 

What to See and Do on the Pakleni Islands
The crystal clear waters and pint-sized beaches are the Pakleni Islands’ main draws, and there are ample places to swim, snorkel, or spot dolphins and sea turtles. The main island of Sveti Klement is dotted with picturesque villages, including Palmizana and Vlaka, while the top destinations on neighboring Marinkovac are Stipanska, known for its lively beach club, and Zdrilica bay, which is home to some excellent seafood restaurants.
