    I have been several times before at Mt Biokovo Nature Park, but this is my first visit after the Skywalk opened. It's well worth a visit, but too little is being done to make it more accessible for visitors. In summer, those with cars have to wait 3-4 hours or don't manage to get in at all. I was lucky to be on the motorbike. But, the road is in a very poor condition, full of potholes and with sand and gravel in the curves, so each day a few visitors with motorbikes and scooters fall, often with injuries

    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.

    It was really lovely here... A nice place for a short and easy walk, with plentiful parking and nice views. Well worth a stop.

    Plenty of parking by the harbour and then only a 15 minute walk to the end of the peninsula. Really lovely on the headland, next to the sea, amidst the trees.

    The park is a large stretch of woodland Lying between Makarska and Tucepi.The woods are beautiful and quite dense,thus affording welcome shade from the hot sun.There is a network of well-constructed but stony and rocky paths here,the best being the one to Nugal Beach due to its lovely sea views.If rest is needed,there are frequent benches on the tracks.Would have liked more chance to explore here.

    In Makarska's central square is situated the fine little Baroque Church whose construction started in 1700, before being consecrated more than fifty years later and which, right up until 1828 had its own Bishop, although it is now a 'collegiate church' as part of the Split/ Makarska diocese.

    Opening hours are extremely variable and, consequently, access is somewhat uncertain but, once inside, it has an impressive interior reflecting the efforts of early Makarskan Bishops to create a religious treasury with items created by craftsmen from Venice Italy, as well as local craftsmen. Badly damaged by the earthquake in 1962, and then rebuilt, which altered its original appearance, but still worth a visit if open.

    Picturesque Nugal Beach is considered a gem amongst the beaches along the Makarska Riviera.

    Surrounded by pine trees and accessible only by foot (a 20-minute hike) or by boat, it is also a popular nudist spot.

    Although legally recognised as a nudist sanctuary, there is no one there to force everyone to get naked.

    Visitors just need to be aware that the majority of people at the beach practise nudism, and therefore one should be respectful of the environment.

    Very kind and enthusiastic guide. You can see some beautiful planets and might learn some new stuff about our galaxy. :) Be prepared with cash (it is around 30 kuna for one person)!

    A small, but nice collection of sea shells, from around the world, as well as of the nearby ocean.The museum is located inside a franciskan monestry.
    We were met by an elderly woman who communicated fairly well in english.

    I had the place to myself. It is falling into delipidation a little. All the information boards had rotted and all were on the ground. However all plants are still labelled although a few especially those in crevices had died in September 2019. I followed the track that rises alongside the mountain for quite a way before it descended again. It was a bit overgrown and steep alongside the stream. Only fit people should use this route, there is an easier less steep one.

    The entrance ticket costs 10 kunas, but it was a well spent money - it's a lovely small museum rich with stories of Makarska, villages under Biokovo mountain range and a pearl of strings - all coastal villages and small towns of Makarska Riviera. The Museum also houses local archive, so it's a good starting point e.g. for visitors of Croatian origines who arrive in order to discover something about their ancestors. The collection is well presented, with textx in Croat and English language. It could also provide you with information for further exploration along the Riviera, e.g. to search for the Epitaph of Licinianus in Zivogosce
