The Riviera

South of the town itself, along almost 20 km of the coast, the Riviera of Omiš stretches with its numerous small villages and fishermen’s ports,  situated only meters away from the sea. Although geographically not far apart, each of the villages has its own story to tell, and each offers its visitors something new and unique – from small fishermen’s ports with numerous cosy restaurants to secluded coastal villages where, even in peak season, you can find a peaceful cove just for yourself. Along the Riviera you’ll find dozens of grocery stores, restaurants, hotels and hundreds of private vacation rentals where you can put your feet up and relax on your sea-view balcony, which almost every house on the Riviera of Omiš boasts.

Omiš

Omiš

This small Dalmatian town at the mouth of the Cetina river, some 25 km south of Split, offers a unique blend of the river, the sea and mountains, its proud and fascinating history and rich cultural heritage.  First mentioned in ancient times, it was a medieval pirate stronghold and a venue of numerous pirate battles, during various periods of its history a part of the Republic of Venice, the Austrian Empire and Napoleon's Illyrian Provinces, and it continues to stand proudly today „upon the rock of Omiš“ ( i.e. „na omiškoj stini“ , as the famous klapa song says).      
 
While its numerous monuments, such as the forts Mirabela and Fortica, its Early Christian churches and Renaissance details, bear witness of the town's glorious history, the impressive nature of its surroundings speaks for itself. Such diversity and multitude of opposites, brought together in perfect harmony on such as small territory, is rarely to be found elsewhere and continues to attract and impress thousands of visitors each year. It is therefore no wonder that the tradition of summer vacations in this area goes back more than a century.

Nemira

Nemira

Closest to Omiš lies Nemira, a quiet coastal village situated in a bay, where you’ll be able to spend your vacation in peace and quiet, enjoying the clear sea in the shade of pine trees, away from the busy streets and crowds of the town. The town centre is, however, no more than a 20-minute walk away from the village of Nemira – and this along a beautiful waterfront promenade.

Stanići

Stanići

The village of Stanići is an old fishermen’s settlement, known for its long pebble beaches and the famous cove of Velika Luka where, thanks to its west-facing orientation with no mountains or hills blocking the sea view, you’ll experience one of the most beautiful sunsets on the Adriatic.

Čelina

Čelina

Right next to Stanići, you’ll find the village of Čelina – a typical Dalmatian coastal village, where people have for centuries lived from the sea and with the sea. The present-day Čelina is situated by the Adriatic Highway, and if you choose it as your holiday destination, be sure to leave an afternoon free to visit the 800 years old medieval village of Čelina, situated on the mountain above the today’s tourist resort.

Lokva Rogoznica

Lokva Rogoznica

The more than 700 years old village of Lokva Rogoznica was, as legend has it, founded by 7 noble families who used the land given to them by King Bela IV to plant grape vines and produce their widely known wine. In the old days, the inhabitants of Rogoznica were mostly land workers and their homes were situated high up on the slopes of the Dinara mountain. Many of the paths that the inhabitants of old Lokva Rogoznica used in order to reach the invaluable sources of fresh water on the coast are still in use today.

Mimice and Medići

Mimice and Medići

No more than 10 kilometres from Omiš and 25 kilometres from Makarska lie the villages of  Medići and Mimice, two typically Mediterranean places which complement one another perfectly. In Medići you will find peace and one of the most beautiful beaches of the Omiš Riviera. The fine gravel and –  due to favourable currents – always perfectly clear sea are what keeps a growing number of visitors returning to Medići each summer.
