    The image of the coast is the same as in Croatia (it couldn't be otherwise). With Peljesac peninsula facing it, the coastal views are enhanced by the calm waters and life around it.

    It seems very suitable and used for seafood production.

    In a very strange arrangement, Bosnia- Herzegovina cuts Croatia in two, with a stripe of land less then 8 km large, to... reach the sea.

    In this short coast, the only relevant town is Neum. In a quick crossing I saw nothing special to add to the naturally beautiful landscape. Just a curiosity.

    To be honest there's not that much going on in Neum but it's a good place for a person who likes peace and quiet and doesn't like to be around too many people.

    Buses between Dubrovnik and Split usualy stop between 30 minutes and 1 hour in Neum, enough time for food and some shopping.

    What to buy: Cigarettes and alkohol, since Bosnia and Herzegovina is not in the EU these are quite a bit cheaper.

    I always wondered why when the Croats and Bosnians had spent much of the war knocking the crap out of each other , the Croats allowed the Dalmatian coast to be bisected by Neum ( Bosnian territory ). This was answered by the way that when the bus stopped in Neum , we gained several computers and vatious other taped up boxes which sneakily avoided Croatian V.A.T but no passengers before scooting back into Croatia.

    I spent a couple of days here and it was pretty cool. It's not a big beach though, but it's the only Bosnian beach.

    Favorite thing: We passed this area of Bosnia and Herzegovina for a bit on our way to Dubrovnik. It's the only seaside town. This area has a special agreement so no visa is needed to go through. We stopped here to get something to drink and use the toilet for an hour or so. You can use both Croatian Kuna and Euros to buy stuff here.
