The Pakleni (pronounced [pǎklɛniː]) or Paklinski ([pâkliːnskiː]) islands are located off the southwest coast of the island of Hvar, Croatia, opposite the entrance to the Hvar (city) harbour. The name is popularly translated as Hells' islands (pakleni: hellish), but it originally derives from paklina, an archaic word, from which pakleni too is derived, that means "tar", and in this case refers to the pine resin once used to coat ships that was harvested on these islands.


Swim in the crystal clear waters, cruise on the secluded cloves, admire the beauty of this little paradise as you slurp on your favourite drink by the beach. Possibilities are endless!
