Orebic Things to Do

  • Landscape

    Being a peninsula, the long and narrow hill of Peljesac allows wide views in its western coast, dotted with several islands, and it seems a lagoon is its eastern side, with many fisheries. No matter where, the result is always spectacular, specially at sunset

  • Peljesac's Coast

    Maybe with the help of the light effects in sunset, maybe because it is really wonderful, the Peljesac coast provided us the most spectacular views of Dalmatian Coast. We passed there three times, and the sensation was always great.

  • Perna - Orebic Beach

    The beach in Orebic Perna is not the nicest. It's either cement blocks or small stones. No sand and rocky beaches here.

  • Winsurfing

    Once you are good at it, Orebic is a great place for windsurfing and there is a view of Korcula not to beat.

  • Windsurfing

    The main activity for people coming to Orebic is windsurfing as the winds between Korcula island and Peljecas can get pretty strong. Usually the best wind can be caught in the late afternoon and those who know how to eat it make a real show then. Other times of the day the wind is usually strong enough to learn how make a use of it. And once you...

  • Windsurfing school

    There is a windsurfing school in Orebic - Perna and few places renting out whole equipment. I payed 300 kn for the rent of the board and the sail for 5 hrs, which I could use any time.

Orebic Restaurants

  • Best octopus salad

    They serve absolutelly the greatest octopus salad and ligne na zaru (grilled squids) I have tried in Croatia. The waitress Snezana was always recommending the best plates and what made the octopus salad so tasty was the changes she made, I think they were preparing it without tomatoe for us..

  • madla's Restaurant Tip

    It is very strange but usually it pretty costy to have a generic fish. But there a lot of interesting seafood for a very good price. I preffer mussels which are usually server in very big quantity for very low price and are really great !

    Coastal road in Peljasac

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Peljesac is a long peninsula in the southern part of Croatia. Coming by car from the north you can either take the coastal path passing Bosnia and Hercegovina or shorten the way and take a ferry from Ploce to Trapanj. Then you can cross the mountains to get to Orebic which is on the other side of Peljesac.
    Other way of getting here is the ferry or catamaran from Split. There is a catamaran Krilo going from Split to Korcula (stopping in Hvar) which takes 3 hrs, costs 50 kn and it's a very nice ride. Then it's only 15 min boat ride from Korcula to Orebic.

    It seems to be more expensive to shop using credit cards, so if you carry cash, you can get by cheaper. Listed prices are usually for cash and they sometimes add 2-5% for credit cards.

    Getting cash is easy - there is a number of ATM (cash stations) in Orebic and my Bank One banking card from Chicago works in all of them and throughout Croatia just fine, so I stopped carrying Travellers Checks years ago.

Orebic Off The Beaten Path

  • Hiking to Sv.Ilija

    The mountain rises above the town of Orebić. It is the highest peak of Pelješac, in western end of the peninsula. The previously name was Perun hill (Perun the old god and ruler of lightning). Later the name was changed into St. Ilija and Italians called it Monte Viper ( Snake Mountain ). Some believe that the name originated from a large...

  • One day we did a break in...

    One day we did a break in water activities and we did a trip to mountain St. Ilja just behind our hotel. Its peak seemed near but after two hours we gave up. Anyway there was a beautiful view up there.

Orebic Favorites

  • A Town in Peljesac

    We really didn't visit Orebic - we just arrived there by boat, to our final travel inland towards Dubrovnick. It is the biggest town in the peninsula, and, for sure, a good start point to the marvelous views along it.

  • Podobuce

    Visit a small village of Podobuce if you'd like to spend a quiet day enjoing sea, sun and good food :)
