1. Kacic Square

Whether you want to enjoy a mid-afternoon bite to eat, look around the stalls of the daily market, or partake in a bit of people watching, you simply must spend some time in Makarska’s marvell0ous Kacic Square. Vibrant and bustling, the atmosphere here is sure to stay with you for a long time.

2. St Mark’s Church

The simplicity of the architecture of St Mark’s Church is a notable juxtaposition to the untamed mountainous landscape behind. This calm and tranquil retreat on the edge of Makarska’s main square is more than worth visiting during your time here.

3. The Shell Museum

This small museum houses a vast array of shells that have been collected from various locations across the world. The half an hour or so you’ll spend learning about the collection will be a pure delight and many visitors describe this museum as an unexpected treasure.

4. Kotisina Botanical Garden

This free park has myriad of trails and paths, many of which are fairly steep and rocky, but the views of the verdant landscape and sparkling waters are simply spectacular.

5. The Town Beach

The palm-tree promenade of this beach is incredibly beautiful, framing the curved pebble beach and shimmering turquoise waters so perfectly it looks like a place of fiction. Spend some time lounging seaside, swim in turquoise waters, hop on a peddle boat, or tuck into to a gelato from one of the local parlours.

6. Explore Makarska Harbour on your Yacht Getaway

When dining at one of the stunning restaurants here, ask for a table overlooking the harbour, especially for a magical sunset dinner. A post-dinner stroll along the surrounding boardwalks is an ideal way to reflect on your day before making your way back to your yacht for an evening cocktail under the stars.
