Absolutely "must seen" in Makarska. But only for people without fear of heights ;) Entrance 50 kuna. A ride up top lasts about hour and requires good driving skills. On a top a little bit colder then in the city.
I think the Biokovo Mountain is incredible. They are stunning & take my breath away everytime I gaze at them. You can climb them too, but if you want a serious climb, I'd probably recommend a guided climb to start with.
To the peak Sveti Jure you can walk directly from "ground zero", you have two options and you can make a "giro" route. For cyclists you go to Biokovo national park (pay entrance fee) and then you cycle to the top. From Makarska-riva 32 km, avg.grade 6-7%. Expect winds and cold weather so take something warm with you for downhill + something to drink&eat, because on top there is nothing!!except one shelter, but I do not know opening hours. There is one mini hut beside road, it may be open on weekends.
This was the highlight of our trip to Croatia. We went with Off road Biokovo, the yellow Land Rover you may have see on the streets in Makarska. Dario showed us the most beautiful way up the mountain and his driving was excellent!
Wow what a mountain. We hiked up 396m approx as only had trainers - would need proper hiking boots to go above the tree line It was still a great hike and challenging if you like that sort of thing. The views are spectacular. There is nothing in the way of cafe or place for drinks on the way. I believe there is a mountain hut that opens in high season for drinks/snacks etc. Bring sunscreen and lots of water. There are snakes also, they were not evident when I was there. Advised long trouser in summer season. Totally worth doing.
You HAVE to take the Safari ride! Amazing 3 hours ride in jeep (and some of the time on the roof) to the mountain. Beautifullu view and nice driver who made us lunch on the top and showed all the amazing views from the mountain up to 750m high. Cost only 30e
Apartment was just perfect; very modern and spatial, located on the top floor, with a stunning views of the surrounding Biokovo Mountains and Adriatic Sea. Kitchen was very well equipped. Additionally terrace with a small table. The whole stay was very comfortable and pleasant. Cleanliness was spotless. Perfect location - close to Main Bus Station and to the Center. Hosts were really friendly and helpful. Thank you for a nice stay. Highly recommended!
Beautiful and modern apartment overlooking the Biokovo Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. A wonderful owner who welcomed us 1.5 hours ahead of time. We will return to Makarska and to the apartment. We felt at home. And to this wonderful, huge balcony, on which we basically ate all meals. I honestly recommend. For now the best of our apartment that we rented through Boocking.
The position is really good and convenient for us to go hiking around Biokovo mountain (we had our car) and to reach the centre on foot it just takes 5 min. The place is quiet even in August because it is not in the central part of the city, so, if like us, you wake up very early in the morning and you need a good night sleep, this is perfect.
We had a lovely stay at Lux Apartments. They were very clean and stylish, with excellent facilities. The location is fantastic, very central - and with a great view of the Biokovo mountains. Sergej was a great host, with excellent communication and hospitality. We highly recommend staying at Lux Apartments if you visit Makarska!
- the host was very friendly - the apartment is near to the beach (4 min. walk) - big balcony with view to the biokovo mountain - own parking place - dishwasher in the kitchen - air condition - everything was clean
Take the 23km drive to the top of the Biokovo National Park, it is stunning.
