Description

This island has two shrub-covered peaks and a light is shown from its SW extremity.

There is an historic wreck, located E of the island near Otocic Parzanj.

It is surrounded by several dive points. The top one is also known as "Campanile" or "Turm", as it has a shape of a church tower, only without the peak. The tower is arising from "nowhere" up to some 10m under the surface.

The most interesting part is the canyon with red gorgons from 15-40m depth, and a 5m long tunnel on 35m. [http://www.viking-diving.com/upload/Vodnjak2r.jpg]

Sur l'extrémité ouest de l'archipel de l'île de Hvar (Croatie), il y a une petite île, Vodnjak Veli, qui est la plus à l'W et externe des îles du groupe des Pakleni.

Cette île a deux pics couverts d'arbustes et un feu à son extrémité SW.

Il y a une épave historique, située à l'E de l'île, près d'O. Parzanj.

Elle est entourée de plusieurs points de plongée. Le plus célèbre est également connu sous le nom de "Campanile"ou "Turm", car il a la forme d'une tour d'église, sans  le pic. La tour semble sortir de "nulle part" sur une hauteur de 10m sous la surface.

La partie la plus intéressante est le canyon de gorgones rouges à une profondeur de 15-40m, et un tunnel de 5 m de long sur 35m.
