A lot of questions about Makarska, Dubrovnik, Split ...
My husband and I are visiting Makarska from 17 June till 1 July.
We want to visit Dubrovnik and Split by public transport, en walk through the city by ourselves, no guided tour. Is this recommended?
Is it easy to reach Dubrovnik and Split by public transport from Makarska?
Are there quiet beaches around Makarska, which are easy to reach on foot? We like walking a lot, so 5 km to a beach is no problem!!
We want to walk in de Biokovo Mountains, what do you recommend?
Does anyone has more tips, while we are visiting Makarska? We won't hire a car, so we need to do things on foot, by bike or by public transport...

Biokovo has very "moody" climate, even during the summer. Be sure to follow marked hiking tracks.
Here you can find some ideas for escapes from Makarska:
Getting around between Makarska and surrounding places is easy by local Promet buses.
Re: A lot of questions about Makarska, Dubrovnik, Split ...
We went to Dubrovnik and then along the coast as far as Omis by public transport and fully agree with the comments from croisbeauty and CyberCroat. We stayed at a few different places along the coast including Ston which I think is definitely worth a stop over. Please take a look at my Makarska and Ston pages for tips. A beautiful country - you will enjoy.
Travel Tips for Makarska
Ralphie in Makarska #3
My cousin and "Ralph Lauren" climbed back up the gangplank, "Ralph" helping my cousin along as he was collapsing with laughter.
He bought the paper the next day. A little note in the right hand corner of the front page about "Ralph in Makarska". The center spread had all of the details, including a short bio of Mr. Lauren. And there were the pictures of my cousin standing next to Ronaldo, the Italian radiologist, aka "Ralph Lauren".
People in the cafes sipped their espressos or spooned their cappucinos and sighed as they paged through the morning paper.
"Here I am in paradise and I have proof that it is. Ralph Lauren came here yesterday."
A pause to stir a spoon.
"How did I miss seeing him?"
"Why didn't he stop by my table?"
They stared out into the harbor with greater interest. The waiter had mentioned a rumour that John Malkovich was sailing up the coast from his hotel in Dubrovnik.
A visit was in order, they concluded.
One of Dalmatia's Most Popular Mainland Resorts.
This resort town only a few hours drive from Dubrovnik is located on a long streatch of coast with the Biokovo massif rising rapidly behind the town. The approach to the town is impressive as there is the blue ocean on one side and the massive , rocky and barren hills only a few kilometres behind the town. On a clear day with blue sky the landscape looks fantastic. We only stopped for one and a half hours , enough time to have a light lunch and walk around the town before we were back on our coach heading to our destination, Split. I think Makarska is worth at least an overnight stay.
