Located in this region of Croatia is the beautiful coastal town of Makarska, which is certainly recommended as a holiday destination! Resort towns Brela and Baska Voda (the former a smaller resort, the latter larger and more busy) are also lovely. Omis is the first town you come to as you travel from Split down the coast; Tucepi and Podgora are two small but lovely resorts. (The first is famous for a long stretch of beaches.) As it’s a popular part of the Croatian coast for a holiday destination, there’s a very good selection of accommodation in Central Dalmatia.
