The Makarska Riviera stretches for 60km between the towns of Brela and Gradac with the main town being, of course, Makarska. The Riviera is one of the most famous tourist locations along the Croatian coast and is also one of the most beautiful with a number of sandy beaches (rare for Croatia!), pine trees, sparkling water and peaceful bays. The area is also known for the impressive Biokovo Mountain, which overlooks the coastal area.
