Croatia //

The southern Dalmatian coast


The coast south of Split is perhaps the most dramatic in the country, with some of the Adriatic’s finest pebble beaches sheltering beneath the papier-mâché heights of the karst mountains, all easily accessible on the frequent coastal bus service.

Some 25km south of Split, the historical town of Omiš makes the ideal base from which to visit the rugged Cetina gorge and the strange and wonderful lakes at Imotski just inland. North of the gorge lies the Marian pilgrimage centre of Sinj, while south from Omiš stretch the celebrated beaches of the Makarska Riviera – which runs from Brela to Gradac – dramatically perched at the base of the Biokovo mountains. Beyond Makarska, the Neretva delta comprises a fascinating landscape of canals and mandarin groves, and contains at least one major archeological site in the shape of Roman Narona.
