Marina Palmižana is located at the most stunning bay in the largest of the Pakleni Islands, just 2.5 nm from Hvar town. This popular boating destination offers a relaxed and carefree vacation in a unique environment in harmony with nature.
Palmižana offers a variety of activities for an exciting vacation, ranging from swimming and hiking to kayaking, diving, and surfing. From Palmižana, you can go to explore numerous hidden coves and isolated beaches that will leave you breathless. If you're looking for an exciting nightlife you can take a short taxi boat ride to the center of Hvar and enjoy the nightlife and glamour that only Hvar can provide. Marina is open from April to the end of October.
It is well protected from Jugo and northwest winds, but not against Bora. The northeastern berths can be rocky.
The distance between the Palmižana marina on the island of Sv. Klement (in the Pakleni Islands) and the island of Hvar is 2.4 nautical miles. Although there is a chance of a tidal wave in case of heavy west or southwest winds, most of the time the cove provides safe shelter from the waves and wind. To the north, in front of the entrance to the marina, lies Baba Rock, marked with a black-and-red column with two spheres. It is only visible during low tide and at night is marked by lighthouse (Fl(2) W 10s 7m 4M) the exact position of which is 43° 10.1’ N 16° 23.8’ E. As the rock is wide, it is recommended to steer clear of it, especially on its northern side. The entrance to the marina is marked with an “ACI” signboard. When approaching from Cape Pelegrin, it is safe to steer toward Baba Rock, and when approaching from the direction of the town of Hvar the same landmark should be used, taking care, however, not to sail too close to the islet of Gojca. If approaching ACI Marina Palmižana from the south, the course leads between the islands of Borovac and Sv. Klement, where the sea is less than 5 m deep. This passage is not lighted.
