So untouchable natur, blue sky and so so blue sea. This part of Croatia is really like a heaven on the earth. Unexplored and everything is like a national park on the highest level.

As suggested, these island were a part of a larger organised trip that we went on. They are very nice islands and are maintained well in that the water is crystal clear and there's not much litter around.

Re-visited Croatia after many years absence – my, it's got busy! We sailed at the end of the season, and we were unlucky with the unexpectedly wet/windy weather, but everywhere was packed. No chance in mooring outside Hvar, so hopped across to Pakleni and opted...More

If you can afford the expense of renting a boat for the day, the Pakleni Islands (often translated as Hell's Islands) is a beautiful trip. The sea is crystal clear and beautifully warm. It wouldn't be difficult to find a more secluded beach where you...More
