There is a famous saying: There is no such a thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. If your sunny vacation is briefly interrupted by a summer storm and a downpour drives you off the beach, keep this in mind.

The promenade along the sea stretches along the entire Brela. More precisely, from the Berulia Hotel near Baška Voda to Jakiruša. It is 7 kilometers long and ideal for leisurely walks and sightseeing. Also, the promenade is very suitable for sports activities such as cycling and Nordic walking. The path continues from Brela through Baška Voda so that you can continue your walk. Along the promenade, there are numerous benches and places to relax and beach bars and restaurants with a rich offer, so there is no fear if you get tired.

It seems logical that they use the day to go to another destination and see something new in case of bad weather. Destinations like Dubrovnik, Split, or Makarska seem like a good idea to spend the day sightseeing and walking. The slight catch is that almost everyone comes up with the idea and, at the same time, heads for the roads. Due to bad weather, slower driving, and road congestion, traffic jams often occur on the approaches to known destinations, kilometer columns, and waiting. That doesn’t sound like something you want on vacation. We advise you to check the road conditions and congestion when choosing a destination and the time when you will leave.
However, even if you are on holiday in your car, we advise you to look at our offer of private tours and if you find any of the destinations interesting, contact us. Our experienced drivers know how to avoid crowds and which destinations and how to get there quickly. They will be happy to advise on where to go and together we can create a trip according to your wishes
