Excellent! We rented the Brig Eagle 650 - very nice boat! Parking close to the harbour! Borko gave valuable hints where to go (avoiding the typically crowded places)! Easy check-in and -out process!

Overview of Makarska  

 

Makarska is a port town in Croatia, located on the Dalmatian coast. It is a well-developed city, located below Mount Biokovo. The city is a must-see destination.

From serene views, a beautiful beach, perfect weather, attractive sites to extremely lovable people; Makarska is a place you’d surely want to visit. 

 

Although the city has urbanized, it still has a rather pleasingly wild untouched feel to it. Most of the settlements here are small and almost village-like, except for the main square. The main square of the city is overlooked by the Baroque Church of St.Mark and by several different palazzi that were built in the 18th century. In the summers, the main square is filled with cafes and open-air restaurants. 

 

Meanwhile, behind the church, there is a daily open-air market where you can purchase fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables. Overlooked by a string of cafés and pizzeria along with the harbor, there are wooden excursion boats that offer one-day trips to Jelsa and Zlatni Rat beach, one of the world’s renowned party beaches! Not far, you can always take your motorboat to Split and experience a different part of Croatia. Also, not far from both Makarska and Split is, Hvar, a city that has the perfect mix of the old Croatian history and that of a new modern city. You can take your yacht rental to Hvar and explore this beautiful area. 

 

Between Makarska and Hvar, you'll find the city of Bol. Bol is known to be one of the most charming villages in the Croatia coast. Be sure to sail to Bol and experience the beauty. Keep in mind that the main source of attraction here is the sandy beaches. The walkways are lined with fragrant pinewoods that overlook the glistening turquoise sea. Meanwhile, the trees are surrounded by luxurious hotels, cafes and restaurants, and other tourist facilities. You can hire peddle-boats, jet-skis and banana rides and can enjoy your time with your friends and family.
