Pokonji Dol is an islet in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea, which is situated 500 meters south from Hvar. Pokonji Dol is one of the Paklinski islands. The lighthouse in the middle of the islet was built in 1872.[1] Because Pokonji Dol is the eastern-most island of the Paklinski otoci (Hell Islands) archipelago, the lighthouse ensures the safe navigation of vessels coming from the open sea.
