Makarska: Where the Mountains Meet the Sea

A slice of heaven in the middle of Dalmatia and one of the most beautiful destinations in Croatia, Makarska’s natural beauty has been attracting true lovers of authentic local experiences for decades.

This coastal town is sheltered by a beautiful mountain and Biokovo nature park on one side and the endless blue sea on the other. It’s a sight to take your breath away. Kilometres of the most beautiful pebble beaches in Croatia, rich cultural heritage, authentic, delicious local food, great nightlife, and the numerous surrounding smaller villages to discover in the surrounding area are reasons to come. 

Makarska is the sixth destination in Valamar’s portfolio in Croatia. You can choose from three of our facilities in Makarska: Valamar Meteor Hotel, Dalmacija Sunny Hotel by Valamar, and Rivijera Sunny Resort by Valamar. We offer rooms with fantastic views right on the water or amidst Mediterranean forest and olive groves, as well as various amenities such as wellness centres and sporting activities. 

Staying in this part of the Mediterranean also means you must try the award-winning, world-class local olive oil. Make sure to visit an olive oil tasting room near Makarska located in a three-hundred-year-old house, where you can learn all about the production, storage, and kinds of olive oil. 

This region is also known for top wines, which you can try on a wine tour of the Imotski region. In addition to famous varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon, or Merlot, try original local varieties like Žilavka or Trnjak. 

As you’re already there, make sure not to miss out on an excursion to the Blue Lake, a karst lake behind Biokovo mountain. The lake’s unusual shape and its unbelievable blue colour are among the most fascinating things you can experience.

Bloggers, journalists, tourist guides, artists, entertainers and all kinds of hospitality experts and enthusiasts have gathered under the ValamArtists handle to lovingly bring you the best out of the Croatian holiday experience. Enjoy the ride!
