Really enjoyed the biokovo skywalk, in spite of choosing the only cloudy day of our holiday 😀😀
We found it a little bit confusing when we booked - you have to book in advance or you can’t go up the mountain. It is unclear when booking whether the time slot is entry to the mountain road, or entry to the skywalk.
We therefore arrived at the entry to the mountain 45 mins early: the time slot is actually entry to the mountain, so you really don’t need to arrive early. There is a barrier across the entrance which they lift on the hour, and only 20 cars are allowed up in each hour time slot.
Took about 40 mins to drive up to the skywalk: it is a narrow road, but there are lots of passing places and it never felt unsafe.
The skywalk itself is really impressive- great views in spite of the cloud.
You can only spend about 20 minutes on the skywalk, which we thought was long enough.
You can then go on to the top of the mountain or go back down: going down is much easier than the drive up, as all the cars coming up come together. We just parked in one of the bigger passing places and let them all go up past us.
Wish we had brought a picnic- there are various places on the mountain with picnic benches, and there is a restaurant as well, although we didn’t try it.
All in all, a really good trip out

We booked the last time in schedule on July 11 19:00. All skywalk was ok, quite many meople so a bit complicated to take pictures, but probably that’s natural for mid summer. View from the top perfect nothing to add.
However after closing the skywalk we slowly headed down the mountain and stopped in many spots for pictures or just short stops to walk arround. I think we spent more than 1,5 hour slowly moving and that was the best experience. We seen probably the best sunset in my life, also because we were in last group there were no traffic at all. No cars moving towards to mountain top so no stress - empty road.
Everybody recommends early morning as the best time, but due our visit in Makarska there were possibility to book only online so everybody came on schedule so no jams and waiting in queue. If there is possibily I recommend to choose evening times because sunset is something outstanding.

Magnificent landscapes all along the route. This very narrow road is not dangerous, you have to drive slowly and take your time ... Sometimes it may be necessary to reverse but there are always places to put the car.
To do absolutely and preferably in the morning, there are only 25 cars per hour that go up

Nice, sturdy construction. Walking on it it's an interesting experience especially for those afraid of heights. The view it's nice but far from spectacular, better view from Vosac cabin. Time spent on skywalk is limited. The spot is popular, luckily they have limited the number of cars that can go up in an hour. Road to the skywalk is pretty scary for unexperience drivers. Buy tickets online, in time, so you can choose exactly the time you want to enter the park.

I went to Biokovo mountain also in the period before Croatian war, with my parents, and now I keep comning back alone, always with my motorbike. It is one of the best locations for motorbikinig in Croatia, although the road leading to Sv Jure peak is in a poor condition and park generally overwhelmed with too many visitors. Hopefully they will soon complete the cable car from Makarska! Do visit the Vrata Biokova restaurant

We stayed in campsite Biokovo in Zagvozd and had a early morning tour to the mountain. Northern side of the mountain was perfect choice in summer hike. We were hiking under the shade of trees. We didn't go on top, but walked up to the first water wells and stayed there because it was perfect spot for us.

If you are scared of heights, go somewhere else! The narrow road up the mountainbike is one-file and with sparse if any railing. Horses, donkeys and cows wandered on the road as well. I was scared sh*tless, however it was all worth it. The view was breathtaking and the experience memorable.

Took a walk from Makarska and headed to the path from Makar. It took about 2hrs 20 minutes to reach the top, with quite a few short stops on the way. It's not too arduous a trek, but starting this at 10:30 in summer was not one of my best ideas as it was hot! The top is tree covered mostly, so not too bad, the first half would've been easier without the sun overhead, so I'd say start earlier. The views from the top are really worth the effort, you can see a lot of the islands and the coast looks awesome! There's a little hut at the top you can shelter behind if you need too, and benches too. Take plenty of water and some food!

We have visited Biokovo Nature park for a couple of times because it offers a perfect escape from the crowded beaches of Makarska. It is great for all - hikers, cyclists and also for families due to its newest addition, Biokovo skywalk. I have written a detailed review with some tips in my blog (link in bio), I hope it helps you to make the most of your visit.

I wanted to visit the Biokovo since I firstly saw it in 2007 from the Makarska city. Another inspiration was given by the article Biokovo on the webpage summitpost.org. ( http://www.summitpost.org/biokovo/151261#chapter_10 ).
We decided not to climb it by feet but rather by car. I will not write any details that can be found on the website mentioned above, but rather mention the most important facts.
The road to National park Biokovo may be tricky to find. After enterring Makarska from the south, on the first crossroad turn right to Vrgorac. At the entrance of the park each person must pay 40 kuna. It takes appr. hour and half to reach the top of Sv.Jure (it includes stops near a restaurant and Ravna vlaska, to see amazing views). The road is very narrow and twisty so you have to be very cautios to avoid other cars going downwards. On the top there are two ways how to reach the top. I recommend the continental way - on the left from the parking lot as it is much safer than the coastal way. The top offers amazing views either on the continental Croatia - Sestanovac, Imotski as well as the Dalmatian coast and further islands. On the top there is an old church, you can´t enter into. On the way back after 10 minutes I recommend turning right to Vosac and Strbina. Leave a car on the parking place and follow tourist marks. Getting to Strbina takes not more than 45 minutes and another 40 minutes takes reaching Vosac. Actually, views from the Strbina and Vosac are the most spectacular from the whole trip as these two places are the highest accessible to see the Dalmatian coast. On the whole, a 6 hour journey definitely worth it, because it offers huge adventure how to brighten ordinary vacation. Just do not forget a plenty of water and caution during ascend and descend.
