Visit the Nature Park Biokovo

This list for your holiday in an apartment in Makarska wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the Biokovo Nature Park which features a mountain sheltering the town. Years ago, the mountain used to protect the city’s inhabitants from sea raids. At present, the mountain is a nature park featuring an excursion site with a plethora of marked mountaineers’ paths, numerous animal species and unique plant life.

    “Makarska is a nice and cozy place. You will find everything for your vacation. The beach is narrow, but stretched out. Cozy bars and restaurants and many souvenir shops. It is also reasonably affordable, although the difference with the Netherlands is getting smaller and smaller. Within walking distance you can find a LIDL and there are also small supermarkets everywhere. In the evening there is enough entertainment in the city: different bands in the square, a nice fish market. From Makarska we have made trips: 1.5 hour drive to KrKa. Dubrvonik was a lot of driving with 3 hours, but well worth it. We also participated in rafting. In short, a fantastic holiday resort for every taste.”
