Hit the beach
The resort’s greatest asset by far is its beautiful coastline – thick with uninhabited beaches, deserted islets and clear seas, it’s perfect for a Robinson Crusoe-style experience.
Go island hopping
If you head to nearby Makarska – about a 15-minute drive south – you can catch one of the regular ferries to the islands of Brac and Korcula.
Enjoy a seafood feast
This part of Dalmatia is well-known for its oysters, which thrive in the pure seawater. Get shucking and enjoy a dozen with a glass of local white wine.
