Makarska – Lighthouse St. Peter, a luxury tourist oasis
St. Peter lighthouse overlooking the beach in Makarska and Biokovo should soon become an oasis of rest for tourists looking for luxury. The Makarska lighthouse, which offers an amazing view of Makarska with a kilometer long pebble beach and Biokovo mountain in the background, as well as the islands on the south side, is extremely interesting to tourists. Therefore, this summer, investors plan to reconstruct the building which was already available for renting and was one of the record breakers by occupancy.

St. Peter lighthouse was built in 1884 on the peninsula of the same name which is located in the center of Makarska, near one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic. It consists of a small four-sided stone tower and a ground-level building, covering a total area of 90 square meters, surrounded by a stone terrace. The lighthouse is automated and included in the remote control supervising system, with no lighthouse crew. Its distance from the sea is about a dozen meters. The lighthouse is surrounded by natural beaches with flat rocks suitable for sunbathing.

About a hundred meters to the north begins one of the most beautiful beaches of the Adriatic marked with blue flags, the Makarska town beach, abundant in numerous catering and recreational facilities.

The lighthouse can be reached by a paved road from the city center after a 10-minute walk. Makarska is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Adriatic, which apart from the beach offers numerous sporting and cultural facilities. The rich nightlife makes this property an exclusive resort.

It is not known when and who named the lighthouse after a saint, the first apostle and martyr who holds the key to the gates of Heaven. However, this wonderful peninsula and the lighthouse on it in the full sense of the word look like a gateway to heaven. Beautiful beaches, crystal clear sea and Biokovo Mountain in the background leave the impression of something that might remind you of paradise.

For guests who arrive by car, an excursion to the mountain Biokovo is recommended to the highest peak of St. Jure from where unforgettable sunrises and sunsets can be enjoyed.

There are 45 lighthouses on the Adriatic, 13 of which can accommodate tourists. The interest in these unique, historical heritage buildings is very large so it is often necessary to book them a year in advance.
