Information and Clubs

Everything mentioned so far would be incomplete without mentioning Biokovo, mountain that shelters the town and under which lies Makarska. During history it protected the inhabitants from sea raids and it raised its peaks as an obstacle to the attacks from the land. Today the mountain is the park of nature, excursion site with many marked mountaineers paths, unique plant life and numerous animal species. It presents a unique contrast from 2000m high snow peaks to the peaceful coastline. It only takes a half an hour drive through the nature park to reach the peaks with an unforgettable view of the city and the surrounding islands.
