The view of the Makarska Riviera is spectacular from every angle. If you look at the Makarska Riviera from the island of Brac, especially when the weather is clear and sunny, you will see a spectacular movie scene - the mighty Biokovo mountain rising directly from the sea. Something like the sunnier, prettier version of The Wall from Game of Thrones. If you swim ten meters from any beach on the Makarska Riviera towards Islands, and look behind you, again - you will be amazed with a view. This nature's masterpiece created by the mountain and the sea, with a thin line of both wild and humanized nature in between, is truly something that every nature lover wants to see. And every photographer. And enthusiast, artist, or instagram influencer...
Although Biokovo has been known as a tourist attraction for decades, and the part of this mountain that belongs to the protected Nature Park is an important part of all hiking and walking routes, new attraction in the area of Ravna Vlaška is another reason for visiting this mountain and Makarska Riviera.
