Makarska - CROATIA

Makarska is a popular seaside town on Croatia's coast located in between the cities of Split and Dubrovnik. It the main town amongst many on the "Makarska Rivera".

Makarska has one of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic and the town itself has both a historic centre and a number of modern hotel complexes.

This is by far, one of my most favourite places on the Croatia coast. Enjoy!

Croatia - Makarska

Makarska is the largest city along the 60-km long Makarska Riviera, an attractive summer vacation spot which draws a number of tourists because of its variety of tourist offers. The exceptional beauty of its pebble and sand beaches, coves and surrounding fern tree forests were previously noticed even by the historic Cretans. Located at the base of Biokova, the most attractive Karst Mountains, Makarska offers alpine adventures at the same time.

Population:
13,716

Distance to Zagreb:
420KM

One of my most favourite places on the coast. That beach on the western side is amazing and the water is so unbelievably clear.

Oh my!

They have some serious social problems there in Makarska. The city should do something about those beach bums

Brela are great! I was there working on reconstruction of some hotel three years ago and fell in love with this place. Really nice beaches. The only ones that I like like those in Seline.
