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

(4.7/5 based on 315 reviews)
Five star

Trip was nice and safe with really adorable driver ☺️ Meeting was on time and we were travelling with comfortable bus. We recomend to go to Dubrownik with bus instead of own car, because the streets are very crowded and parking fees are high. We had stops and we could see new Pelješac Bridge. Route was directly via Croatia, so no passports were needed. Thank you! ☺

The bus driver picked us up on time. We payed the fee for the entrance to the park directly to the driver an he organized the tickets for us in the park (this is not included in this booking). On the way to the park we had an one hour stop in Sibenik, a very nice city worth a visit. All good, we can recommend it.

Booking process was very easy and the meeting point was only a 5 minute walk from our Hotel. The bus arrived at specified time and the driver was pleasant, but we then went on to pick up people from other locations for another 1hr 15mins. We then drove to the border with Bosnia, where we were told that as there were 3 buses ahead of us we would be waiting there for at least 45 mins. We were told we could get off and stretch our legs/ make use of the toilets There was only 1 toilet! it was in a porta cabin with holes in the floor, no toilet roll, a door that didnt lock properly and it was filthy and smelt disgusting. We re boarded and went on our way after about 35 minutes but went straight to Mostar. There was no mention of Pocitelj or why we did not go there. Mostar itself was worth going to - but very slippery underfoot. We were also warned on arrival to keep our belongings close as it was not a safe place to walk around, previously people had been robbed. There were also several women and children begging/ following and repeatedly asking for money. Tour description said it's a 2 hour drive with a stop elsewhere but it was actually 4 hours to get there with no other stop.
