Baška Voda

The seaside town of Baška Voda sits on the Makarska Riviera at the foot of Mount Biokovo. Between the pretty local beaches, adventuring on Croatia’s third highest mountain and plenty of potential for Adriatic island-hopping, it’s a perfect base for an active family holiday this summer. Split is just an hour’s drive west and has one of the most fascinating historic centres in Europe. And only 10km east of Baška Voda, charming Makarska town is another must-see and also where to catch a ferry for Brač – Dalmatia’s largest island and home to legendary Zlatni Rat beach.
