Holidays in
Orebic

A little Mediterranean paradise

Orebic holidays offer versatile landscapes that reward exploration. On Croatia’s beautiful Peljesac peninsula, Orebic’s waterfront is lined with stone houses with exotic gardens planted by seafarers in the 18th century, and the town is surrounded by pine and cypress trees, wild beaches and dazzling blue skies. Many visitors come for the beaches, and although most are composed of fine shingle, you’ll discover the odd sandy cove or slab of rock that seems like it was designed for sunbathing.

This is also the heart of Southern Dalmatia’s wine country, and sun-dappled vineyards dot the whole peninsula. Pair a bottle of silky red Dingac with some fresh grilled seafood and you’ll find yourself nearing gastronomic heaven. Nothing much happens here, making holidays to Orebic ideal for languorous, sun-soaked days on the beach, where the only thing you have to worry about is when to reapply your sunscreen.

Best things to do in Orebic

Get in the swim

The sea is stunningly clear, and it’s Orebic’s greatest asset – so dive in and enjoy the cooling Adriatic water. The coastline is also a paradise for snorkellers.

Savour the shellfish

A former fishing village, Orebic is the perfect place to sample fresher-than-fresh seafood and fish. In particular, look out for oysters from the Peljesac peninsula.

Grab a glass

The peninsula is known as a fantastic wine-growing region. You can walk from one vineyard to another, sampling the wine, before taking home a bottle or two.
