Palmizana marina on St. Klement Island (Pakleni
Islands) is approx. 2.4 Nm from Hvar. The bay is mostly well protected from winds and
waves. In strong southwestern to western wind a considerable tide may occur in the bay. To
the north, in front of the entrance is the rock called Baba, which is visible only during
|The rock is marked by a lighthouse (Fl(2) 10s 7m 4M)
fixed on a black-red-black stand with two globes. The latitude and longitude of the
lighthouse are 43°10,1' N 16°23,8' E. Because of the width of the rock one should keep
clear of it. The very entrance to the marina is marked by an "ACI" sign board.
When approaching from Cape Pelegrin, one should steer towards Baba rock. The same can also
be used as a way point when approaching from the town of Hvar, but on that route one
should keep clear of the islet of Gojca. ACI marina Palmizana can be entered from the west
as well, through the passage between the islands of Borovac and St. Klement where the sea
depth is less than 5m. The latter passage is not lighted.
