Restaurant Zori is situated on St Klement island, 10 minutes boat drive from the city of Hvar and 5 minutes of walk from ACI Marina Palmizana, one of the safest marinas on the Adriatic. 

Paklinski Islands are located off the southwest coast of the island Hvar also known as Hells’ islands. The name originally derives from ‘Paklina’ means ‘tar’, and in this case refers to the pine resin once used to coat ships. The main island of Saint Klement, sometimes called ‘Big island’ has 3 settlements – Palmizana, Momica Polje and Vlaka. This very indented coastline formed of the most popular carbonate sedimentary rock limestone is approximately 10 kilometers long. It is an area of untouched natural beauty enriched with low pine forest with black pine and aleppo pine. With all this natural beauty overlooking amazing Adriatic sea it is no wonder that the Islands are so popular for visitors with boats and yachts. Numerous peaceful coves for diving, underwater fishing, swimming, water sports and so much more for comming back to this magical, peacefull place. Palmizana, where Zori is situated is also called ‘The Island of the Rosemary’ because it blooms several times a year on every slope of an island filling the air with its heady scent.
