Well worth a visit, such a relaxed town with a beautiful harbour and an amazing backdrop of the Bikovo mountains. Some great places to eat and the people are really friendly.

A lovely place to wander around and see the boats come and go and marvel at the stunning scenery of both the old town and the imposing mountains behind. The whole town was accessible for anyone with mobility issues, impressive.

We went to Makarska at the end of September, and the beaches were still fairly crowded. Clear water, pebble beaches. Bring your snorkel gear and water shoes! Take a island boat tour, you won't be disappointed.

We visited a few towns and villages along this stretch of the Croatian coastline and thought this was the prettiest.

Lovely crystal clear water. Great for going for a stroll at any time of day or for hiring bikes for a cycle.

I am not sure what you are asking about here, but the city of Zivogosce is about 18-20 km away from Markaska. Take a buss and it will use 20 minutes for the ride between the two places.
