Paklinski Islands

Local name: Pakleni otoci

Paklinskie islands are a group of 16 small islets on the Adriatic, located south of the city and the island of Hvar. This place is famous for its amazing, pristine beauty and wonderful beaches. The largest of the islands is Sveti Klement, whose name comes from the fifteenth-century chapel dedicated to St. Clement. The island also has remains of Illyrian mounds and the ruins of Roman villas. Palmižana is the most famous beach on the island.

The gravelly-rocky Stipanska beach, designed for nudists, is also very popular. It is located on the island of Marinkovac. You can only get here by sea by private boat or by water taxi from Hvar.

Paklinskie Islands also attract tourists with their unusual name - in literal translation "Pakleni Otoczi" means "Hell's Islands". In fact, however, "pakleni" comes from the word paklin, which means pine resin in the local Croatian dialect. This raw material is commonly used here for sealing ship and boat hulls.
