Pakleni Islands Tour (Pakleni Otoci) – Jerolim beach, Mlini i Palmižana
09:00 AM (Check in is 20 minutes before departure time)
The Pakleni islands are the product of a rich history of ancient explorers and their desire to create an exotic escape from the rest of industrial Europe. The place is therefore a hive of elegant estates, huge colourful gardens and beautifully unspoilt rocky coastlines. The Pakleni Islands, the emerald jewels opposite Hvar Town, are a major attraction for sailors, beach and nature lovers. Often mistakenly called Hell’s Islands, the name Pakleni is taking from a type of resin used in ship building. While they may all look fairly similar from the air, there is incredible diversity
Named as CNN’s top naturist beach in the world in 2011, Jerolim is one of the most liberal islands in Dalmatia. Don’t hesitate to venture further into the lush, island forest of pine trees and reach other smaller bays dotted around the island. Kodovan bay is home to rustic, wooden sculptures created by local artists and offers a more traditional vibe compared to the glamour of many of Hvar’s other beaches.
Mlini beach is well-loved but only by the few people that know of it – it’s a hidden gem on an otherwise busy Pakleni island. We’ll reach a bay of extremely clear water, a traditional stone-built restaurant and a beautiful pebble coast line shaded by the pine forest that dominates the island.
Today, Palmizana stands as the most popular and the largest bay within the Pakleni islands allowing you to enjoy a combination of natural, unspoilt beaches and beautifully designed restaurants and bars. These beachside hideouts let you enjoy the freshest seafood possible alongside cocktails and wines – a great pick-me-up for when you’re feeling exhausted from travelling. There are endless restaurants and even an art gallery so Palmizana is well-equipped to look after you on your trip out from the main town.
