Getting There -- It’s a 90-minute drive from Split to Makarska along the Adriatic Coastal Highway, a route which is also served by regular regional buses. From Makarska, local buses also cover the smaller towns along the Makarska Riviera. Makarska is connected to Sumartin on the island of Bra─Ź by a Jadronlinija ferry (www.jadrolinija.hr).

Getting Around -- Makarska’s waterfront has a palm-lined, pedestrian-only promenade, but the rest of the town is open to traffic, which can become very heavy during July and August. From Makarska, a 14km (8 1/2-mile) path leads along the coast all the way to Brela, passing through Baška Voda (9km; 5 1/2 miles) en-route. It makes a lovely walk or bike ride, passing lots of small beaches along the way, some clothing-optional.
