Top 10 things to do in Makarska

On the foothills of the mountain Biokovo from one side, and the beautiful Adriatic Sea from the other, the city of Makarska is one of the most significant cities in the region, and actually the whole region is named after this city: Makarska rivijera, which includes about 10 towns across 20 km. This city is famous for a great nightlife and beautiful beaches, so during the summer season, the city is crawling with tourists. While you are staying in Makarska, we strongly suggest taking trips to nearby places as its location allows for many different day trips and activities, and the surrounding nature is just amazing.

Here we picked our favorite activities to do while you are staying in Makarska.

Visit the National Park Krka

1. Visit the National Park Krka


The National Park Krka is situated approximately 2 hours’ drive north from Makarska and it offers a magnificent spectacle of nature. Krka is a river which in the lower part cascades into beautiful waterfalls and leaves any visitor breathless. The whole park can be experienced by foot, walking on wooden pathways that give you very close views of the waterfalls and this makes our most recommended tour to take from Makarska. View all tours to Krka waterfalls from Makarska.

Explore the ancient city of Dubrovnik

2. Explore the ancient city of Dubrovnik


Dubrovnik is the ancient city situated about 2 and a half hours drive south of Makarska and its one of the greatest historical heritage sites in Croatia. The whole city center is under the UNESCO protection and apart from the rich historical significance, the architecture is just amazing especially the ancient city walls that surround the whole city and you can take a walk on them. Highly recommended! View all tours to Dubrovnik from Makarska.


Visit the Biokovo Mountain

3. Visit the Biokovo Mountain


As the city is located at the foothill of the Biokovo Mountain, it would be a shame not to take a walk on the mountain and see a great panoramic view of the area. The mountain in itself is a beautiful park of nature and it is suitable for everyone regardless of the stamina. View all tours to Biokovo from Makarska.

Take a boat tour

4. Take a boat tour


One of the best ways to experience the sea is to take a boat tour. Whether it's just a short ride or a full day tour visiting several islands, we highly recommend enjoying this experience. Apart from being able to stop and swim on some amazing places, the boat ride give you an opportunity to view the beautiful Croatian coastline. Here is the list of all available boat trips from Makarska



Visit Imotski

5. Visit Imotski


Imotski is city in Croatia popular for the Red and Blue Lakes. The Blue lake is famous for having very high water level oscillations and in some dry years completely drys out and then a traditional football game is played. The red lake is one of the deepest lakes in Europe with a depth about 260 meters, and surrounded by cliffs high about 240 m. Both lakes are a marvel of nature. Imotski is also famous for it fantastic wines. View all tours to Imotski from Makarska

Visit the National Park Plitvice Lakes

6. Visit the National Park Plitvice Lakes


Plitvice is a must see when you visit Croatia. The 16 lakes connected by cascades are truly a miracle of nature and the most visited national park in Croatia. If you have the will take the drive of about 3 hours from Makarska, we highly suggest going to visit this amazing place on a day tour. View all tours to Plitvice lakes from Makarska

Explore the cities Split and Trogir

7. Explore the cities Split and Trogir


After Dubrovnik, we highly recommend visiting Split (and Trogir while you are there). Split was founded by the roman emperor Diocletian more than 1700 years ago, when he decided to build his palace on the sight. The palace is now called Diocletian’s Palace and it’s actually very big, but it’s not its size that is fascinating, it’s actually the fact that people are still living in the palace, you can walk through its narrow streets and have a coffee where once roman soldiers walked.

Visit Mostar

8. Visit Mostar


Mostar is an old city in Bosnia and Hercegovina and is a very important historical point on the map. It is cultural pot, mainly Catholics and Muslims, and the city is divided in two parts, connected by the old bridge (the city got its name by this bridge: “Most” means “bridge” and “star” means “old”). It’s a good opportunity to visit this city when you are in Makarska as it is only a 2-hour drive. View all tours from Mostar to Makarska.

Go Rafting on the river Cetina

9. Go Rafting on the river Cetina


An adventure not to be missed! Cetina River and the Cetina canyon offers a great time for adventurers that are willing to sail on a small boat on its fast currents. The organization of this rafting adventure is great and it takes only a little bit of courage, no stamina required! View all rafting tours from Makarska.

Explore the surrounding nature

10. Explore the surrounding nature


As Makarska is a relatively small city on the Mediterranean coast, it has a lot of unattached nature in the surrounding, so if you are in good fitness, we highly recommend taking an outdoor adventure, like driving a mountain bike, trekking or horse riding.

Makarska

5 star rating:Very Good (4.8/5 based on 38 reviews)
Five star

This trip was very nice and I would recommend it for people who don't want to spend whole day in Krka. The online booking was easy and the pick-up point was easy to find (Osejava bus station). We had a nice mini bus and the driver was very kind. We had enough time in both places and the price for the trip was the best we could find in Makarska (and also worth it)!!

I found booking the trip with Happytovisit very easy. They sent me reminders before the trip and the information I received regarding the trip was accurate. We were picked up at the location on time and our driver was very friendly and helpful. The journey to Mostar was very scenic and Mostar was well worth a visit even though it was busy. We had a brief stop in Pocitelj which was worth seeing. I would definitely recommend this trip I personally would have liked more time in Mostar maybe an overnight stay on my next visit. Being able to book my day trip before my holiday was great and will use Happytovisit again when I visit Croatia.

The booking process (on line) was very easy and we can change the day by a simple phone call. The van was very clean and comfortable and the driver very friendly. I recommend it!

We had an excellent day out in Dubrovnik. Although we booked via Happytovisit, the whole of the trip was still with the rest of our hotel party, which was nice as it gave us some familiar faces to see alongside beautiful scenery and the city itself. All of the Gulliver staff (the coach driver, guide and the city tour guide) were friendly and helpful. Mr Dark, the city tour guide, made the tour of the Old Town particularly enjoyable. All-in-all a great day out and well worth the money!
