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.

"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
