Having read the previous reviews I was confident that this would be a great hike before going to the beach one morning. My wife and I are both fit and regularly do a 10km hike, however for anyone with less than a good fitness level...More

Been up here a few times - it's a great short hike but make sure you have suitable shoes, a cap/hat and water as it is tough for unseasoned hikers with some sharp inclines. Take your time and all will be good! This said I...More

Was pretty hard to climb but when you are on the top you feel like a hero it! Amazing view and great feeling after all! Go there in the morning or evening time, and don’t forget to take water with you! Even 60-70 years old...More

Simply beautiful. Untouched, magnificent Croatian nature at its best. But of a beautiful hike but worth it. Views are breathtaking. I recommend for all ages. I can’t wait to go back and bring all my friends.
