There are 2 ways to transfer from Split to Dubrovnik: 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, fresh seafood, small towns…

Why should I go by car?

a) Distance between Split and Dubrovnik 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 Dubrovnik, 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 snacks: cheese, extra virgin olive-oil, bread.

c) When you cross Croatian-Bosnian border (twice), soon there’s charming small town of Ston, founded by Dubrovnik Republic in 14th century. It’s a must see place, because of its saltpans (dates back to Roman Empire, still harvesting salt), stone houses, long defensive wall…
