I was thinking what to write about, and here it is a short guide of things to see and do in Baska Voda.
When you finally come to this little town on Makarska Riviera coast, you have plenty things to see. For start let me teach you how to pronounce properly the city name, it is Baska (pronounced Bashka) Voda – a small village and port only 9 km north of Makarska and just south of Brela. It’s an easy day trip from Split but it’s also a wonderful holiday destination in its own.
It was once known as humble fishing village, and now tourists come because of pebble beaches, pine woods and amazing wonderful sunset walks along the sea. (my favorite ‘to do list‘)
As you can assume no one usually comes here for museums, galleries and churches; it’s mostly family holiday place. Most people want to hang out on the beach drinking cocktails and just ‘chilling’, but if you are adventure seeker you can also do some pleasant hikes mostly to nearby Biokovo Mountain. Visit the nearby villages of Bast and Topići, known for their traditional cousine (cheese, prosciutto, bread, and ‘”peka” –> google that). Take an easy walk to Promajna and the little fishermen’s village of Bratus.
But if you really want to explore some of the hidden bays, my advice to you is to try –> KAYAKING. I discover that three years ago and it is really great sport if you want to stay active and do some environmental exploring. And you really do have a lot of bays to explore…(here is one photo of me and my boy exploring the bay around Brela stone).
Worried about renting a kayak? No worries, in Baška Voda you can rent a kayak on almost every beach and some of the local agencies even offer kayaking tours to Brela and back.
Before you take this water adventure make sure you bring a sunblock, a hat, bottle of water, some fruit … and a good camera to capture all this amazing photos.
Book your accommodation on time and start planning your adventure!!! 🙂
