Podgora has over 5.5km of crystal-clear coastline and there’s a spot to suit every beach lover. Beaches line the town’s seafront centre, flanked by buzzy bars and restaurants. North of the centre find the less-crowded Plišivac beach, surrounded by pine forests and showcasing some of the clearest waters in the Adriatic. If you spot urchins, that’s a sign the water is clear (and that you should don some sea-friendly footwear). Further north (still only a 25-minute walk from the centre), the peaceful Garma beach doubles as a hidden cove. Lay your towel on its pebbles and take in the soothing sounds of the waves.
On the Makarska riviera, between the Adriatic sea and Biokovo mountain range, sits the small town of Podgora. The former fishermen’s village has transformed into a modern tourist destination brimming with history, culture and outdoor activities – cycling, scuba diving and everything in between. Read on for our expert selection of the top 10 things to do and see in Podgora.
