Perfectly located along the Dalmatian Coast, the town of Makarska is the perfect place to “base” yourself when traveling to Croatia. With accessibility to islands such as Hvar and Brac, you can rent a boat for the day to find private beaches and coves. Also, the towns of Dubrovnik and Split are also just a short drive away. Makarska is “embraced by nature” surrounded with parks, the sea, islands and Biokovo mountain. You’ll definitely want to hike to the top of the mountain, try local wines, explore the old town, hike through the parks and experience the local cuisine.
