|About these ratings|
Some of the Pakleni Islands -- like Sveti Klement (St. Clement) -- will have small shops, homes and the occasional man-made structure. But most are simply untouched terrain -- quiet pebble beaches, isolated coves, lush pine forests. All in all, this chain lends itself to outdoors activities like swimming, scuba diving, kayaking and sunbathing. A TripAdvisor user remarks: "We spent day on sea kayaking trip to Pakleni Islands. Although we had never kayaked before, the trip was great. We absolutely loved our adventure." And if you are with children, be careful: many of the beaches here are clothing-optional.
Of course, the best way to get to the Pakleni Islands is on your own yacht. But, in case you don't have one (we don't either), there are daily ferries that leave from Hvar Town and stop at the major spots on this archipelago. The frequency of the ferries increases and decreases with the high and low tourism seasons. Prices vary greatly, so check with the Hvar Tourism Board office when you arrive to plan a day trip.
