Makarska

Makarska is a lovely Mediterranean tourist town and the centre of the famous Makarska Riviera. It is a known starting point for boat rentals in Croatia, as the sailing grounds close by are considered ideal.


Located on a horseshoe-shaped bay, the Biokovo Mountains form an impressive backdrop. The Makarska Riviera is made up of the towns of Makarska, Brela, Baska Voda, Krvavica and Tucepi. A buzzing tourist destination, it is famous for its palm trees and long promenade on the Adriatic Sea


Besides sailing, there are plenty of other activities offered, such as hiking, windsurfing, climbing, paragliding and mountain biking. The old centre of Makarska is a charming place with its cobble stone alleys and beautiful church square.


Chartering a boat is simple as there are three marinas in the area of Makarska: Baska Voda Marina, Ramova Marina in Krvavica and Tucepi Marina. The proximity of the southern and central Adriatic islands makes this region an excellent base to charter a boat from.


Makarska Riviera is reachable by car, on the Adriatic coastal road or by highway. The highway exit/entrance is 20 kilometers from Makarska.


Regular bus lines run from Split and Dubrovnik and the main bus terminals and the train station are located in Split and Dubrovnik. Domestic and international ferry lines come into Split. There is a ferry line from Makarska to Sumartin on Brac Island.


Split Airport is 60 kilometers away, while the Dubrovnik airport is 165 kilometers from Makarska.


Similar to the rest of the Adriatic with Force 2-5 being the norm, it’s sometimes a little stronger when the Bora or Sirocco blows. Seas can be choppier, especially in late afternoon and early evening when a combination of opposing winds and currents can cause a buildup. Recommended for sailors from novice to some experience.
