Pristine Islands

Hvar is Croatia’s top summer resort for many good reasons. The sunniest island in Croatia’s archipelago is sometimes referred to as the ‘island of lavender’, due to its abundance of the fragrant plant. Whilst Hvar Town is a hive of activity, it’s possible to escape the crowds by making your way to the northern coastal towns of Stari Grad and Jelsa. On the southern coast there are gorgeous isolated coves where you can relax and swim in crystal clear waters.

From Hvar, you can easily access the pristine islands of Pakleni on a day trip. Hop aboard a taxi boat and sail to the tiny island of Palmizana (also known as St Clement), part of the Pakleni Islands archipelago.
