As if Hvar town was not already the perfect destination, a string of emerald jewels, called Pakleni islands, in front of the town offers to escape from the crowds, excellent beaches, great dining, and surprising diversity. On board of a sailing boat, choose to spend 6 hours of your day in the sun, discovering hidden coves, swimming in a clear blue sea and relaxing in the untouched nature of the Pakleni islands. The sights, the sounds, and the scents of this spectacular trip will be truly memorable.

Tour program of the Pakleni islands boat trip:

  • Meeting point in Hvar at Jurja Matijevića 20; here you will meet your skipper and board a comfortable sailing boat with a small group only 8 guests.
  • We set sail for the Pakleni islands and during the day, we will make several stops for swimming and snorkeling in the most beautiful bays and lagoons, always depending on the sea and weather conditions, and we will stop for lunch at one of the restaurants on Pakleni Islands.
Possible stops are:
  • Jerolim island, whose beach Kordovon has been named by Huffington Post as one of the top secret beaches in Europe, as well as CNN’s top naturist beach in the world. Kordovon beach is one of the most chilled places in Dalmatia and a combination of FKK, sun, sea and relax, where everything is organic, and almost anything goes.
  • Then, we continue for the nearby island of Marinkovac, stopping at the idyllic cove of Zdrilca: pristine water, pebble beaches, Dalmatian slow life typified by the excellent restaurant on the beach.
  • The next stop will be Palmižana bay. Located on Sveti Klement island, the largest of Pakleni islands, Palmižana bay is the favourite getaway for Hvar islanders. Here, azure waves lick a sandy cove surrounded by pine forests, heather fields and breezes scented by aromatic herbs. Scuba divers love Palmižana due to its vibrant underwater life.
  • Not far from Palmižana is the small fishing village of Vlaka on the northern shores of Sveti Klement. Home to vineyards, the remains of a Roman spa, and magical mud used by locals to heal their skin, Vlaka is the go-to for those looking to escape the busy crowds and blistering heat of Hvar town to instead relax in the quiet of a glistening bay.
  • We will start sailing back to Hvar town where the tour will end.
*Please keep in mind the route and time schedule can vary depending on the weather and sea conditions.

The price includes: English speaking skipper – Dry snacks – Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages – Equipment for snorkeling.

To know more about your boat trip...

The Pakleni islands (or Spalmadori islands in Italian) are a real natural paradise. It is a group of twenty islands with a total area of about 7 square kilometres and located opposite Hvar. The name “pakleni” comes from the word “paklini”, a pine resin that was used in shipbuilding. The Spalmadori islands are playfully distributed in the Hvar archipelago and are all wooded, some of them untouched and completely uninhabited. For this reason, the Spalmadori or Pakleni islands are a destination for lovers of the completely natural landscape who enjoy swimming and snorkelling and discovering secluded bays. During the boat tour to the Pakleni islands, you can admire gravel-covered islands, very wooded and rich in fauna.


The sailing tour to the Pakleni Islands takes about 6 hours. You will have enough time to swim, sunbathe and snorkel in the most beautiful bays of the Spalmadori Islands and have lunch in one of the many restaurants in thus delightful archipelago.

      Unforgettable experience

      At first I was a bit skeptical because I am not fond of boat trips but once I got on board I felt immediately at ease and the skipper gave me a lot of confidence: prepared and professional! Thank you very much.

      Nothing missing!!!

      The boat tour with our family was great. We made several stops between the islands to swim and explore the coves along the coast (the snorkeling equipment on board is very useful). From the sea to the beaches to the lunch break at the restaurant...nothing was really missing. I recommend it.

      Discover the Pakleni Islands

      Everything was perfect from start to finish! My friends and I departed from the port of Hvar on a wonderful sailboat equipped with every comfort to discover the beauty of the Pakleni Islands. We made several stops for swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters and finally we enjoyed a great lunch in a typical restaurant in the area! Very prepared and fun crew! Thanks to all.
