MARINA ACI Marina Palmižana

ACI Marina Palmižana is situated on the NE side of Sveti Klement Island, 2.4 nautical miles south from Hvar. The island is part of the Pakleni Islands archipelago, which is a beautiful group of islands with many hidden coves, isolated beaches and lagoons waiting to be discovered. There are no roads and cars on this island, so the best way to explore the pristine beauty of the island is by foot or by boat. The marina boasts the title of being one of the safest marinas in the Adriatic. While providing a safe shelter most of the time, strong south and south-west winds can sometimes cause swells. ACI Marina Palmižana is a seasonal marina, open from the 1st of April to the 31st of October. The busiest time of the tourist season is in July and August when people from all over Croatia and nearby countries flock to the coast. So if you want to avoid crowds, plan your trip accordingly.


Marina Palmižana offers 180 wet berths for boats up to 30 metres in length. All berths are equipped with water and electricity; however, note that daily consumption of water is limited to 100 litres. Water depth in the marina ranges from 3 to 10 m.

Useful Information

There are beach bars, restaurants and private accommodation nearby, all reachable by boat or by foot since there are no roads on the island. For other facilities, such as an ambulance, pharmacy, dentist, banks, post office, police station, market, butcher’s, fish market, supermarkets and more restaurants, head over to the town of Hvar on Hvar Island, 2.5 nautical miles NW from Palmižana.

Fuel and repair services are also available in Hvar (Križna luka).

During the months of July and August, ACI Marina Palmižana is connected to Hvar via taxi boats, which cost around 7 Euros. A ferry connects Hvar with the mainland cities of Split and Dubrovnik and other island destinations nearby, such Brač, Vis, Lastovo and Korčula. Local bus lines connect all towns on Hvar Island. Nearest port of entry during the summer season is in Stari Grad, and nearest year-round ports of entry are in Split and Korčula.

When approaching Palmižana Bay from the north, steer clear of the rocky reef, Baba Rock (Hrid Baba), 500 m NNW of the marina entrance, which is marked with a black-and-red column with two spheres. The reef is marked by a lighthouse, so it is visible by night. If approaching the marina from the direction of Hvar town, be careful not to sail too close to the islet of Gojca. In the approach from the south, the course leads between the islands of Borovac and Sv. Klement, where the sea is approximately 7 m deep.
