Tempet Makarska Travel Agency CEO Welcome Note


About Town Makarska

Since the first mention of the name of Makarska in the year 533 at Salona Synod, many a traveller and a travel writer commended its gentle coves, olive-groves and vineyards, white strands and deep shade of pine groves, and above all the diligent and cordial hosts. In the meantime, Makarska grew up into an important tourist destination and sub-regional centre of the narrower region which includes the Makarska littoral, eastern parts of the islands of Hvar and Brač and the hinterland of the magnificent mountain of Biokovo.

The vicinity of Split, Dubrovnik, Međugorje, Mostar, and the Neretva and Cetina rivers, and good traffic connections make the Makarska an ideal place for vacation and recreation throughout the year.
This combination of sea and mountain, gentle climate with great number of sunny days offer the possibilities for practising a great variety of sports and to engage in many forms of sports recreation.

Sports facilities

The sea and the beaches of Makarska offer a space for various forms of recreation, but its real singularity is the Biokovo mountain with its numerous hiking and biking routes, and possibilities for practicing extreme sports and hunting (hill walking, mountain and rock-climbing, extreme skiing and similar). 

In addition to rich experience and tradition in organization of sports events and hosting of athletes, Makarska has also other advantages such as, among others, good traffic connections (airports at Split and Dubrovnik, Makarska – Zagreb highway, railway routes – Ploče and Split), an appropriate health care organization, good quality medical teams at Makarska and the nearby Split, a special medical rehabilitation Center «Biokovka», the vicinity of the world famous excursion destinations: the Plitvice Lakes and the River Krka Falls.
With the development of tourist facilities and the construction of the Sports Centres at Makarska, Tučepi and Baška Voda the possibilities were created for hosting international sports events and games of the highest level (1979 Mediterranean Games, European Under-20 Basketball Championship, Tennis Tournament, European Championship FIR, etc.).
