Pelješac, located in Croatia's far south, is a half island that stretches over 70 km along the Adriatic coast. It is an ideal destination for tourists looking to escape and experience Croatia's diverse nature. In addition to its rugged coastline, multiple coves, beaches, and bays, Pelješac is home to majestic stone villages and unique traditional architecture, particularly focused on wine-making. The island is known for producing high-quality Croatian wines, such as Dingač and Postup, which are made using old-fashioned methods and grapes exclusively from Pelješac. The island's warm subtropical climate, clear ocean waters, typical Mediterranean vegetation, and local seafood dishes make it a great place for sailing and beach holidays.
One popular destination on the island is the coastal town of Ston, known for its salt production, shellfish farms, and the second-longest wall in Europe, which was reportedly built in the 1430s. Ston is also the only place in Europe where mussels are farmed.
Overall, Pelješac is a beautiful haven for those seeking a laid-back Mediterranean holiday or opportunities to sail on its many bays, marinas, and jetties. It offers a range of stunning coastal scenery, an interesting history through its traditional architecture, and some of the best local wines. With something for everyone, it is truly an island to be enjoyed.
