Experience Croatia

BAŠKA VODA If you are a fan of "Game of Thrones", visit Greben near the village of Topići and the ruins of the fortress above Krvavica where scenes for this popular show were shot.

For a total summer experience There are very few places at the seaside where you will experience such a contrast between the sea and mountains, and the mix of salty and mountain air will benefit your health while you relax on the beaches of Baška Voda.

T

he foot of Biokovo is rich with long, white stone beaches that become the center of fun and relaxation in the warmer part of the year. Many say that the ones in Baška Voda are the most attractive, which was also confirmed by the British newspaper, the Daily Mail, which placed Baška Voda's most popular beach, Nikolina, amongst the top ten most beautiful in the Mediterranean. Not only does it bear a blue flag, but Nikolina beach has also won many national awards, including the Tourism Flower last year for being amongst the top three in Croatia, while in 2008 it was awarded the Blue Flower for the best beach in the Adriatic. Two years ago, the view from a live stream camera of Nikolina beach thrilled the judges at the EarthCam site, which named it third best in the world.

However, Nikolina isn't the only beach in Baška Voda that will leave you breathless. Children can enjoy the playground at Podluka beach, and if you're looking for peace and quiet, choose the beach beneath Ćoca, pets can have a great time beneath Stazica, and fun can be had at Oseka and Ikovac with bars that are open until the wee hours of the morning. The quality of hospitality services in the town was confirmed by last year's survey, conducted with a mystery guest, where Baška Voda got the highest total score in Central Dalmatia.

Nautical bait The Dalmatian archipelago and crystal clear sea are bait for sailors who can find two harbors in this area: Baška Voda with 200 and Ramova-Krvavica
