    Love watching the sun set
    When not at the beach, this is the most beautiful place to await the sunset in Makarska: I watched it setting behind St Peter's peninsula, feeling like I haven't got a worry in the world. It's such an amazing sense of tranquility which this place gives. Seat yourself in front of Hotel Osejava, at its terrace, and enjoy life.

    A magnificent boat cruise
    We went on the Makarski Jadran boat cruise which took us to Jesla (Hvar) & Bol (Brac). This was honestly one of our favourite days of our trip in Croatia. The crew are so friendly and it is certainly value for money we paid €50 each and this gets you a cruise to Hvar & Brac with food and drinks included. The trip started at 0830am and took us to Jesla (Hvar) where we explored for an hour or so and then took the boat over to Bol (Brac) and walked to the Zlatni Rat/ Golden Horn beach which is approx 20-25 mins from where you get off the boat or a water taxi is optional. We stayed there for approx 3 hours. Both towns are beautiful and I would definitely recommend visiting them. The captain of the boat is very knowledgeable and allows photos/ will speak to passengers about anything they need to know. We really enjoyed this cruise and would 100% recommend this excursion.

    Makarski Jadrab
    The boat ride was cozy and nice. We got food and drinks during lunch time and the music they played matched where the guest were from. Most importantly Toni is the man. We loved talking with him on the beach and while getting on the boat. He was very cultured and we learned him about the country sri lanka. Hope to see him there soon:) // Four swedish girls

Super harbour area. Very pretty and all lit up at night. We found a couple of bars and restaurants to sit in and watch the world go by. We had glorious weather and had plenty of cold beers and gelato ………which was divine. It’s nice for a wander in the evenings….. very chilled.

Makarska is very pretty with two bays, one is a beach, the other a harbour. They are almost back to back with each other so you easily get from one to the other.

We went in October and I have to say it was beautiful weather but everything is ‘out of season’ - so expect your chosen drink to not be available, that restaurant closed, the trip only runs on Tuesday etc. It was almost comic how frequently we were told something advertised was not available. All aqua parks - closed.

Having said that, it was a relaxing trip - but if you’re going in October then choose a hotel with everything you need. Our hotel was full but even here not all cocktails available, smoothie ingredients out of stock.

I honestly think it’s a great place to go in October- lovely and warm. They’re missing a trick - or maybe they are just happy to say goodbye to the tourists!

I have been to Makarska many times, from my childhood, and always liked this great small harbour. Small by size, great by what is going on there. It was also a heart of Makarska, a place around which everything turns. Ferries leaving, fishermen selling their catch, people sitting in cafes watching the world passing by... And that going on for centuries!

We visited here and then booked a trip up the nearby mountain which offers spectacular views of the harbour and the coastal area generally, We used Mountain Summit Adventures who you can book by WhatsApp on +385 91 519 4514 - I can't praise this company and our guide highly enough, the walk was tailored to our wishes and abilities and was very informative and enjoyable. A must if you're staying in the area.
