Baška Voda is one of the most attractive tourist destinations on the Makarska Riviera.
It is famous for its long pebble beaches and crystal clear sea. It is about ten kilometres northwest of the town of Makarska, a cultural, economic and tourist centre in the heart of Central Dalmatia, at the foot of the mighty Biokovo Mountain. The mix of Mediterranean and mountain climate in this region provides visitors with a special atmosphere of freshness. Good traffic connections provide easy access to all guests who come here by land, air or sea, and a wide range of possibilities to those who want to get acquainted with the surroundings. Dalmatian towns of Šibenik, Trogir, Split and Dubrovnik, as well as Krka waterfalls, one of the Croatian national parks, can be explored every day independently or with organized tours on day excursions. Boat trips are also organized on the neighbouring islands of Brač, Hvar, Korčula and Mljet as well as the world famous Marian shrine - Međugorje.
The town of Makarska will provide its guests with the opportunity to explore the old parts of the town by foot. The town which has emerged from the village Makar nestled at the foot of Biokovo Mountain, mentioned as far back as the year 533, has borne its present name since the 16 th century. The Malacological Museum of the Franciscan Monastery in Makarska houses an attractive permanent exhibition of sea snails and shellfish which is the most famous collection of this species.
