How to get to the Makarska Riviera

Between Split and Dubrovnik, 60 kilometers away, we find a jewel called the Makarska Riviera. A perfect combination of sea, mountains and unique nature - a postcard of the Makarska Riviera.

Makarska Riviera

This coastal area is proud of the title "Dalmatian Cote d'Azur" for the reason that it will certainly not leave you indifferent when you see the combination of mountains and sea with a unique spectrum of colors. For a special atmosphere, simply go to the Jadranska magistrala and before sunrise or sunset you will be speechless when you see the landscape that this area creates at the beginning and end of the day. The sun, the sea, the mountains together with you create a scenario that is truly seen once in a lifetime and thus provide a unique and unrepeatable visual experience.
