“Nice Views”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This route connects most of the coastal cities in Croatia from Sibenik down to Durbrovnik and to Montenegro. The views are spectacular at some parts and only ok at others. The road is well maintained and not too narrow. It is curvey, but the drivers seem ok, we didn't have any problems with the driving itself.
When you come close to Dubrovnik, there are some nice lookout points where one can stop the car and look down on Dubrovnik's landscape and get some good pictures given it's not a hazy day.
Be prepared to be harassed at this spot with people offering you rooms in their B&B's.

“Nice views but not fantastic”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We drove from Dubrovnik to Sibenik in one day, much of it on this coastal highway. There are many nice views, and a lot of curves, ups and downs. We expected it to be more scenic and spectacular than it was, although perhaps the cloudy and rainy weather made it much less interesting. The roads were excellent and the traffic was not heavy (late May) so the drive was pleasant. Certainly much more enjoyable than taking an autoroute. However, it does not rate that highly among long drives I have made.

“One of the most beautiful and scenic drives you will ever see anywhere in the world and I live in California!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We took a bus from Dubrovnik to Split (well worth it b/c we didn't have to drive/rent a car and were able to enjoy the views). The bridge out of Dubrovnik onto this scenic highway alone is breathtaking, not to mention the vast coastline dotted with tiny, picturesque towns along the way. A definite must-see experience.

“A bit harrowing on FOOT...”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

You can take a #17 (i think) bus out of Dubrovnik up this highway to look back at the breathtaking view of the city, the harbor, the cruise boats, below. Stay close to the shoulder and about mid-way down from the first bus stop they'll let you out at there are STEPS that cut across the windy road down (these traverse alongside peoples' homes, but definitely cut off some of the snaky route). For 3 Euro or so, it's an enjoyable perspective of the city and gets you away from the CROWDS!

“A regular trip for me”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

this is a wonderfully scenic route that I take a lot on my travels but you have to stay alert, its a small windy road with lots of beautiful distractions and some good places to eat with their own little beaches for a good travelling break
