Makarska lies at the heart of the Makarska Riviera on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. The Old Town is built on a gracefully curved bay protected by two headlands, the Osejava and St Petar. Traditionally a fishing port, the town is now a popular tourist destination, both with those who come here for beach holidays and small cruise / sailing ships that moor overnight here in the summer months.
Just to the north of Makarska is Donja luka, whose curved bay and narrow beach is lined with various hotels and resorts. All of this is set against the stunning backdrop of the Biokovo Mountains. All this combined with a relaxing atmosphere and good restaurants make Makarska an ideal resting point of any trip along the Croatian coastline, whether for a single night or a whole week.
