Makarska & Tucepi Holidays

Welcome to Makarska & Tucepi

This sheltered coastline of clear waters and attractive beaches, with a backdrop of the impressive Biokovo Mountain range, is a popular spot for relaxed beach holidays.

The Makarska Riviera is a hidden gem, popular with locals for its excellent climate, beautiful scenery and charming beaches. The town of Makarska is at the centre of the region and boasts a long sand and shingle beach and pine-fringed promenades. The town grew up around a natural harbour, protected by the peninsula of Sveti Petar, (Saint Peter). Once it harboured pirates; now it welcomes upmarket yachts.

Keen hikers will enjoy walking in the Biokovo Mountain range, the highest peak of which is the magnificent Sveti Jure (Saint George) at 1762 metres. For the less active, it is possible to drive to the peak to enjoy spectacular views from what is the highest peak on the Mediterranean. The mountain is protected as a National Park area.


Tucepi is a popular holiday spot with its 4km long pebble beach lined with shady pine trees. A seaside promenade extends along the beach and plenty of water sports are on offer - a popular diving school is situated here. It is a laid-back resort town offering a good choice of restaurants and bars. Over the summer there is a festival of entertainment and cultural performances which take place in the harbour and surrounding villages, including traditional klapa singing groups.

Meanwhile, just 45km away is Brela Beach, generally known to be Croatia’s best beach, 6km of coarse, pale sand, spread over pine-fringed bays stretching along the coast.

Transfers and Distances

Transfer time by road from Split Airport is 1.5 hours but can take up to twice as long in busy high season traffic. The Makarska Riviera is conveniently located between Split (around 1.5 hours drive away) and Dubrovnik (3 hours drive away), making it an ideal stop-off point for those exploring on tailor-made holidays.

"I wanted to send you an e-mail now that we are back from our wonderful holiday. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the team at Diamond Star for arranging a truly unique style of holiday that we are still talking about to friends and family two weeks after we came home. The places we have visited, and the things we have seen were truly amazing, it will take a month or more to sort through our photos"  Andrew and June Welch - 24 Oct 2022

"Back from our holiday to Istanbul/Cappadocia what an awesome holiday. The hot air balloon was out of this world. Thank you Diamond Star for making it all possible special thanks to Nazan. I recommend this company to make your dreams come true."  Mrs Angela Bailey - 6 Oct 2022

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
