The Mediterranean as it once was
Makarska is a picturesque town of impressive beauty which lives off tourism and for tourism; a town of youth, culture, sports and entertainment. It was built around a natural port protected by the charming peninsula of Saint Peter and cape Osejava, and it is the biggest and only such port between the Cetina and Neretva estuaries. The town’s history is best discovered in the Franciscan Monastery as well as through the works of art kept in the sacral buildings of the Makarska Littoral and whose authors are famous Croatian painters originating from this region.

The Biokovo Mountain, a majestic gift of nature, emerges from the pearly sea. If you are craving for adventure and attractive sports challenges, Makarska offers an abundance of sports facilities (paragliding, mountain biking, descending into caves and water sports). The beautiful pebble beach stretches for 2 km along the entire town.

Numerous accommodation facilities with indoor and outdoor pools, including the medical rehabilitation centre “Biokovka” with the most up-to-date fitness centre and complete physical therapy, make Makarska the favourite tourist destination.
This imposing mountain is by far the greatest sight of the Central Dalmatian coastline, and its only nature park. There are few places in the Mediterranean where peaks of over 1,500 metres high come so close to the sea and where mountains rise so steeply as they do here. It is the forbidding and inhospitable peaks of Biokovo that bestow an ever so welcome freshness during the heat of summer upon the coast, as well as proffering a whole range of nature’s gifts to its true lovers. Apart from fresh air and the atmosphere of unsullied nature, Biokovo has beautiful hiking and cycling trails, pleasant resting places and interesting historical remains dating from the times when many shepherds roamed this difficult terrain. Today, the nature park and its highest peak, the 1,758 metre high Sveti Jure, can be reached by road, either from the shores of the Makarska Riviera or from Dalmatian hinterland.
