Where is Makarska: at the eastern Adriatic coast, a small town of about 15,000 inhabitants, about 60 km southeast of Split and 140 km northwest of Dubrovnik.

About Makarska: Makarska is situated below the mountain of Biokovo (1762 m), which protects it from the continental climate and is favorable for its rich Mediterranean vegetation, moderate winters, warm, long summers refreshed by a cool breeze called maestral.

Makarska is abundant with more than 2.750 hours of sun every year, temperature of air is above 25 C from July to September, and the crystal-clear sea averages a temperature of above 22 C.

Makarska evolved around a horseshoe shaped bay, natural harbor protected by peninsula of St. Peter and the cape Osejava, between the Biokovo mountain and the Adriatic Sea. Harbour protect during volatile weather for sailing boats, yachts and tourist ships.

The center is an old town with narrow stone-paved streets, a main church square where there is a fruit and flower market, and a Franciscan monastery that houses an world wide sea shell collection featuring a giant clam shell.

Makarska riva is palm-fringed promenade, where fashionable bars, cafes and boutiques overlook the pretty harbour where many pleasure craft are moored. Adjacent to the main beach are several large hotels as well as a camping ground.
