The Pakleni or Paklinski islands are located off the southwest coast of the island of Hvar, Croatia, opposite the entrance to the Hvar harbour. The name is popularly translated as Hells’ islands, but it originally derives from paklina, an archaic word, from which pakleni too is derived, that means “tar”, and in this case refers to the pine resin once used to coat ships that was harvested on these islands. For a diferent perspective you must see panorama photographs from Hvar.
