Hotel Osejava is named after the Osejava headland which forms the southern entrance to Makarska Harbour. The old town of Makarska is built along the shoreline around the curved bay, backed by the Biokovo Mountains. Guests at Hotel Osejava can enjoy lying in the sun on the quayside in the hotel's loungers or swimming in the clear Adriatic waters.
On the far side of the bay is Sv Petar headland, which protects the northern flank of the harbour. This is named after the 14th century Sv Petar Chapel which stands in the woods on it. On the tip of the headland overlooking the harbour is a large Sv Petar Statue, whilst on the northern end of the headland is Sv Petar Lighthouse, overlooking Donja luka bay, one of the fine beaches along the Makarska Riviera.
