About Makarska

Protected by peninsulas of Sveti Petar and Osejava, residents of Makarska safely dwell on the slopes of giant Biokovo Mountain. A small harbor became an impressive Dalmatian city and a prime tourist destination which gathers thousands of visitors during hot Croatian summers.

With the beach of over two kilometers in length, featuring both pebble and sand terrain, Makarska is indeed a place of clever vacationer’s choice. The city has numerous sport terrains which offer recreation and leisure, and diverse cultural program will entertain guests of all generations. Makarska is also known for its Catholic sanctuary of Vepric, located in a forest cave, and two museums dedicated to underwater life. Couples visiting this Dalmatian city have a tradition of leaving a small padlock on the fence of Sveti Petar Peninsula. These are just some of the reasons why you should walk its stone-paved streets and promenades.
