Makarska Riviera forms part of the coastal belt of central Dalmatia and its kilometres of pebble beaches extend beneath the foot of Biokovo Mountain, part of Biokovo Nature Park and a favourite destination of hikers and botanists.
Its excellent location in the heart of Dalmatia, its crystal clear, warm Adriatic water, its carefully tended environment and many cultural, entertainment and sports events, make Makarska Riviera one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia.
All the villages along Makarska Riviera hold «Fishermen's Nights» during the summer months and there are many folk festivals celebrating patron saints or marking important historical dates, accompanied by original Dalmatian food and wine. “Makarska Summer” unites many events, such as the “Summer Carnival”, “Kalelarga Night” and performances by well-known singers, klapa singing groups and folklore groups from Croatia and abroad, along with concerts of popular and classical music.
Makarska Riviera is a place to get closer to nature – to the sea, stone and centuries-old Biokovo pine forests. You can do this by walking through picturesque coastal villages or along the never-ending pebble shore, or you might feel challenged to try one of many sporting and recreational activities, with something for all generations.
