The Makarska Riviera is a part of the Croatian coast of the Adriatic Sea, about 60 kilometers long.
Makarska Riviera is one of the most beautiful and spectacular areas of Croatia, exposing its long gravel beaches, fig & orange trees, olive groves and pine forests, delicious cuisine in nice restaurants overlooking the sea.
In the center of the Makarska Riviera, there is the Makarska city, situated in a romantic bay surrounded by outstanding mountain scenery. Makarska attractions consist of San Mark Cathedral, the Franciscan monastery with a history of 500 years, which has a rich library, archive and pinacotheque and Shell Museum, which organizes every year the Jazz Festival.
The town of Makarska is an old Roman settlement, which houses ancient ruins and monuments of the middle Ages. The city is extremely well developed in terms of tourism and the prices here are more affordable than the rest of the Dalmatian coast.
Makarska is a tourist center, located on a horseshoe shaped bay between the Biokovo Mountain and the Adriatic Sea. The city is famous for its palm-fringed promenade, where you’ll find fashionable cafes, bars and boutiques overlook the pretty harbor. You should try traditional almond cake with a few drops of lemon juice
Hiking on Mount Biokovo (from here you can admire breathtaking views of the Croatian coast and islands), take a ferry to Sumratin (for those who want to visit the island of Brac), trips to the spectacular canyon of the river Cetina (where you can practice rafting and other sports), or Krka waterfalls, are among the most excellent options, when you visit Makarska Riviera.
