Best Diving Spots On The Island

 

 

 

Stambedar on Pakleni

 

There are more then 15 beautiful diving spots within only 10-60 minutes boat drive from the town of Hvar.

Most of them are around divine archipelago of Pakleni (Paklinski) Islands (Hell Islands). The wrong translation

 of Croatian word "paklina" (resin) turned them into Hell's Islands, in fact they are real Paradise.

You'll find pleasure in discovering colored walls, caves, wracks,as well as rich flora and fauna of transparently

 clear Adriatic sea.

  This archipelago is the most beautiful part of the Hvar riviera and beside the most popular beaches it is a place

 where you can find very interesting diving spots.


Stambedar is a small island of the Pakleni otoci archipelago. Stambedar is interesting for divers due to the

 fabulous underwater cliffs that begin at the depth of 5 m and drop to the depth of 45 m.

  You will discover a rich marine world, many fish, algae, snails, sera-urchins and other sea creatures, 

and in the deeper part of the wall there is a forest of red and violet gorgons.

Location is suitable for both beginners and advanced divers.

Some say that the best things in life are taken slowly to enjoy the most pleasure and serenity.

Hvar invites those with meandering souls to hike through its lush hills and across its rocky shores. 

Our expert guides will help you experience Hvar?s subtle nuances and savour its incredible scents with other like-minded hikers. 

It is good to know that it doesn?t take much to experience a lot, and a day with nature will leave you feeling pleasantly tired and fulfilled.

The island of Hvar has many gravel and hiking paths. Not so long ago some of these old paths were the only connection between the south and north part of the island.


    Pathways lead us through the olive trees and lavender fields, through vineyards, forests and inlets. A visit to the old island villages, of which some are abandoned (Humac, Malo Groblje...), will give you an insight

into the past and the old way of life on the island.


    Hiking to the highest peak called St. Nicholas (626m), from where you can see all islands of central Adriatic and the mountains of hinterland, is also part of this tour.


    Apart from the sightseeing of the inner part of the island, we offer you a hiking tours along the coastal southern part of the island and a visit to the Pakleni Islands.

 

 

                   

 

 

 

     

Speed boat tours

 

 

Paklinski Islands Getaways


The Paklinski Islands are our most popular speedboat tours.

Choose from two terrific tours:

 

Snorkeling the Paklinski Islands


 Legend says that the Paklinski Islands came into existence as a result of a secret love between the sea god Poseidon and a nymph.

Even today it's easy to see why this lovely necklace of little islands that surrounds the town of Hvar is so special.

Spend a day away from the crowded beaches, enjoy the sun in the serenity of hidden coves, swim in a clear-blue sea and relax in the untouched nature of the Paklinski Islands.

This trip includes a guide, snorkeling gear, and if you wish, enjoy a tasty picnic lunch on the boat for a small additional fee. The sights, sounds, and scents of this spectacular trip will be truly memorable.
