Kuciste, Croatia - holiday information

Kuciste Peljesac, Croatia – visitor information

A beautiful resort that stretches along the coast of the Peljesac Peninsula, 6 km west of Orebic. The coastal part of Kuciste is decorated with magnificent captain's houses and stone docks. Traditionally, the inhabitants were engaged in fishing, sailing, and more recently tourism, therefore the apartment offer is excellent. Captain's houses and berths are a special attraction because they provide insight into the lifestyle of the famed former captains of this region. Unspoiled nature, crystal clear sea and fertile land covered with vines make this tiny village a paradise on earth. The beaches are mostly gravely, and because of its location near the Peljesac channel and the wind circulation, sailing and surfing are very popular. In the background of the settlement, settlements Zukovac and Bilopolje can be reached by a hiking path. If you're in the mood for a leisure walk, you can go to a local restaurant on foot to taste some of the local specialties. It is an ideal place for a family vacation.
