Brijesta is a small, quiet village located in the bay of the peninsula. The village is surrounded by several small islands. Ideal for families with children and friends who are looking for rest and relaxation. The place is not as crowded and ensures your own peace of mind.

The activities you can engage into are diving, boating and fishing. Besides fishing, inhabitants are mostly engaged in agriculture. As for the cuisine, the settlement has no restaurants and cafes so you can go straight into some of the neighboring towns like Ston. There you can sample some of the best local specialties. We strongly recommend that you do so at the restaurant "Kapetanova kuća". If you want to go on a trip, except for Ston, you can visit Lumbarda and Janjina.
