Medjugorje Beach Travel Guide
An area synonymous with its Catholic pilgrimage site, Medjugorje has even more to offer the curious and excited traveller. A landlocked town in Bosnia and Herzegovina, bordering with Croatia, Medjugorje is not too far away from remote and unspoilt beach experiences.
Medjugorje Beach Hotels
In the centre of Medjugorje can be found a variety of hotels for individuals, couples, families and groups. Hotels in the city provide a great base for pilgrims and those looking to explore the surrounding area and wanting day trips to the coast.
Beach Activities in Medjugorje
Just over an hour away from Medjugorje is Makarska Riviera, an incredible stretch of beach that will have you feeling like you have stumbled upon a hidden gem. A lesser-known part of the Dalmatian coastline, Makarska Riviera is over 45 kilometres long and has some of the most gorgeous inlets and clearest crystal-clear waters to soak up. The Riviera is flanked by Mount Biokovo (5,770ft), which is a great protection against any strong winds whilst you lie in the sunshine. North of Makarska is the Blue Flag Nikolina and Punta Rata, two beaches that are well worth a visit.
The town of Makarska itself is a treat to walk through with its ancient square and historic architecture. Spend a few hours checking out the town and sampling one of its restaurants overlooking the water. The town’s beach is a massive draw and many locals spend their summers soaking it up.
There is also, of course, the remainder of the Dalmatian coast to experience when in Medjugorje. Makarska would be the closest beach spot to Medjugorje but there is nothing to stop you flying out of Dubrovnik or Split then visiting these impressive coastal cities along the way. What’s more, both Split and Dubrovnik have ferries leaving their ports to nearby islands if you are wanting a few days of absolute peace and quiet, away from the busy tourist-filled streets.
Beach Restaurants and Bars Medjugorje
Medjugorje has a good range of restaurants and cafes to eat out in, offering anything from pizza to more local cuisine. Along the coastline, sample delicious seafood including cuttlefish, octopus and sardines. In Makarska, Dubrovnik and Split are a plethora of hip bars and chilled out cafes to enjoy a cocktail or lighter drink, some with jaw-dropping views out over the ocean.
