Biokovo Nature Park


As a natural shield against unpleasant fresh north winds, Biokovo mountain is rising from the sea to embrace Makarska, forming a picturesque and recognizable skyline over the town.

Due to its numerous natural phenomenona, such as solution pans, sinkholes, karren and pits, Biokovo mountain has been officially recognized as a nature park since the early 80's.
The mountain hides one of the deepest pits in the world, Amfora pit, nearly 800 metres deep.

Beside the geomorphological features, Biokovo Nature Park boasts more than 40 endemic plant species. There is no other place in the world where you can see the vivid blooms of "Biokovo bell" or "sneaking bell".

Take a relaxing walk through black Dalmatian pine reserve or explore the beauty of beech and fir forests, and let the fresh and rejuvenating smells fill your lungs and wake up your spirit.

Visit the Kotisina Biokovo Botanical Garden and get acquainted with some unique wild plants of the Biokovo vegetation.
