Peljesac is the second largest peninsula in Croatia right after Istria. Although it is a peninsula, it has all the characteristics of Croatian islands that surround it. It is located south of the island of Brac, Hvar and Makarska Riviera and north of Dubrovnik (50 km). Korcula Island looks like an extension of Peljesac, and only a narrow strait separates them, so that the ferry from Orebic to Korcula drives just 15 minutes. Peljesac is about 65 km long, so you will need about an hour to come to the top end of the peninsula, to Orebic. People on the peninsula are engaged in viticulture, livestock, fishing, tourism and they are particularly known for the cultivation of shellfish. The most famous tourist place is, Orebic, a place with a long maritime tradition, now a tourist center on the peninsula of Peljesac. Orebic with surrounding towns, Kucisce and Viganj, has numerous private apartments and rooms. Accommodation can be found in many camps, boarding houses and hotels. There are 5 of them. Threre are nice sandy beaches in Orebic and the place is known as wind surf center. In addition, there are courts available for other sports and it is interesting that you can hike to the highest peak of Peljesac which is 961 meters high. Of course, Orebic has numerous restaurants and cafes where you can eat well and taste famous dingac, postup, plavac or Peljesac, famous wines of the region. There are many small places on the peninsula where you can stay in private apartments. We will allocate Trpanj, Viganj, Podobuce, Loviste, Trstenik and Drace. At the entrance to the peninsula Peljesac Ston and Mali Ston are located, towns famous for the cultivation of shellfish and salt. There are long defensive walls around Ston built by the citizens of Dubrovnik to defend themselves from the invaders. From Peljesac and from Orebic you can easily visit Korcula and Vela Luka.
