Yuck. If you want to go to a marine jam packed with yachts and crappy euro music, go here. It can be convenient to get to Hvar town, there are boats every half hour. But during the day you can wait 2 hours for a boat, as everyone is sleeping off hangovers until late in the afternoon.

The Pakelin islands, the largest of which is St Klement are a small group of islands only a short boat trip from Hvar with several good safe anchorages suitable for almost any weather conditions. We sailed all round these islands stopping off for a swim/snorkel in several places & picked up a buoy overnight in O.Vinogradse (anchoring no longer allowed).... More

We didn't have time to visit any of the other Pakleni Islands besides Sveti Klement/Palmizana. However, the beaches, relative peacefulness and nature beauty here is definitely worth a visit if you are spending any time on Hvar. It was one of the highlights of our 3 day visit to Hvar.

Good thing is that no one can build on thee small islands. They are great for day trip by boat. St Clement is my favorite, although it is a bit further from town Hvar, so boat with stronger engine is needed. Island is in shape of 8, and near most narrow part is a good place to leave a boat....

Croatia in particular is highly underrated place to visit in Europe. I was lucky enough to visit Croatia and i really enjoyed exploring the country. Hvar Islands and the Pakleni islands is a must visit. You get to Hvar from Split through the ferry and then you can travel to Pakleni using the Speed Boat. It was just an awesome... More

Make sure you rent a boat in Hvar (500-600kn), join with your friends and visit all of the island in just one day. This was recommended by our hostel staff and was our best day in Croatia! Gorgeous :)

We rented a small 8hp boat from the port in Hvar to explore the islands. We paid about 400kuna for the boat all day which was good (10:30am to about 5:30pm) and it was very easy to use. In peak season I guess the islands are much busier but it was lovely to just weave between them and we stopped... More
