Makarska is one of the most beautiful stretches of the Croatian coast between historic Split and Dubrovnik.

Nestled around a perfect semi-circular small harbour, and set at the foot of Biovoko Mountain, Makarska more than lives up to its idyllic appearance, with the mountain forming a spectacular background to a string of white pebble beaches and peaceful bays.

A dynamic town with fashionable cafés, restaurants, bars, market stalls, boutiques, fun fairs and night clubs, Makarska’s narrow stone-paved streets have lost none of their character. Rich in history, its many historical monuments include the 16th Century Franciscan Monastery and St. Mark’s Cathedral in the main square.
