There are 2 ways to transfer from Dubrovnik to Split: 1) by car; 2) by ferry. Each one has its pro and cons. We recommend doing it by car, if you like scenic drive along the coastline and you’re looking for great wines, small towns, fresh seafood…

Why should I go by car?

a) Distance between Dubrovnik and Split is circa 230km (145 miles) and coastal road in-between is one of the most scenic drive you can enjoy in Croatia. One part of this drive is high-way because we don’t want you to stuck in traffic around Omiš town. Check Google maps below for detailed route.

b) On the way to Split, there’s boutique winery with ‘million dollar view’ from its terrace. Winery itself is part of youngest wine regions (appellation) in Croatia – ‘Komarna wine region’. Although there’s no heritage in wine-making here, there’s a lot of wine-science, therefore their wines are premium quality, constantly awarded at the wine exhibitions. It’s kind of miracle to grow vines on such inhospitable terrain (karst rocks). Here you’ll taste native wines of Croatia: Pošip (white) & Plavac mali (red) paired with finger-food: prosciutto, cheese, anchovies, extra virgin olive-oil, bread.

c) When you cross Croatian-Bosnian border (twice), there’s charming picturesque Makarska town. It’s capital of Makarska Riviera, known for its scenery, pristine beaches, Biokovo mountain (nature park), slow-motion life…  It would be pity not to stop here and wander around. Close to Makarska it’s Brela town with fresh seafood restaurant.

Itinerary:

  • Leaving Dubrovnik @ 9:30am (hotel pick-up) | Vehicle: upper-class sedan car or luxury Mercedes mini-van

  • From Makarska you’ll go to Brela town (30 min drive), another picturesque coastal town with seafood restaurant serving honest food (local ingredients) | Lunch in seafood restaurant is optional and it’s not included in tour price | Seafood restaurant – “Konoba Feral“; This restaurant always offers fresh fish (seabass, seabream, dentex, red scorpion fish…), shrimps, prawns, lobster, mussels, cuttlefish, local vegetables.
