Makarska is one of the most popular Croatian coastline destinations and with amazing beaches, warm weather and fascinating history, Makarska offers something for everyone all year round in Central Dalmatia.Thanks to the nearby Biokovo Mountain which overlooks the town, Makarska excapes the Eastern European chills and gains an extended Summer period. Somewhere between Italy and Greece in terms of the surroundings, Makarska is a great place to rent a Holiday Villa for your stay in Croatia.
One of Makarska’s main attractions is its 2km long sandy beach. Regarded as one of Croatia’s most well kept beaches and certainly one of the best in Europe, it is easy to spend a whole day at this lovely seafront with its iridescent waters shimmering different shades of deep and light blues and the water every bit as perfect as it appears give that it usually sits at a refreshing 20 degrees. Keeping with the water theme, the Krka national park slightly further on the coastline at Šibenik has crystal clear rivers which you can swim in and many paths through the forests to explore.
Discover the rich history of Makarska
Makarska has passed through many hands in its history, from the Romans, to the Venetians and the Austrians and Turks but has still managed to retain a distinctive identity despite having had so many different rulers in the past. The Franciscan Monastery is the best place to learn about the history of the City , as are the other various churches and museums. You will be able to find artefacts and information from all of the different periods of rule, which will help you to appreciate this place even more. St Mark’s Cathedral in the centre dedicated to the patron saint of Venice is another site worthwhile visiting too.
If you enjoy hiking and want a challenge, follow the route up to the Vosac peak and here at 1762m you can see all over the surrounding area and even across the Adriatic over into Italy.
