Villa Tropicana enjoys a wonderful location very close to the sandy beach, restaurants, shops and mini market of Duca. This golden stretch of sand is 5km long! The fabulous attractions of Omis are just 2.5km away.
The scenic town of Omis, also known as the ‘Pirate Town’, is located at the mouth of the Cetina River. The Omis Riviera is often thought to be one of Croatia’s best kept secrets. The coastline is so dramatic with sharp, jagged mountains all around. This little town certainly packs a punch with sandy beaches, biking, kayaking, rafting, canyoning, rock-climbing, ziplining and, on top of those activities, it offers an incredible dining scene. Omis is brimming with ancient buildings and churches including the 13th century Fortress Mirabella and 15th century Fortress Starigrad, also known as Fortica Fortress. The Omis Summer Festival is great fun with capella singing in the churches and squares around the town. There are also pirate shows making it a great evening out. Omis has a number of beaches including Velika Plaza and Bacvice in the centre of the town and Slavinj and Brzet Beaches, roughly 10 minutes from the centre. The popular Camp Galeb Beach is on the way towards Split. Many posters and advertisements for Croatia show the amazing Zlatni Rat Beach, one of Croatia’s best. Many guests take a boat trip over to Brac to visit this sensational beach.
The stunning town of Split is only 25km away and has to be a must visit! The Diocletian’s Palace is a fantastic landmark built in the 4th century. It contains a military camp, the magnificent Golden Gate and a villa where the Roman emperor Diocletian retired. For the most fantastic view of the city you should climb the bell tower of Saint Domnius Cathedral which dates back to the 7th century. It is the most well-preserved temple in Europe. If you do not have much time in Split you may want to take a walking tour with a guide to make sure that you do not miss anything. Split’s Riva is the perfect place for an evening stroll. You can admire the wonderful boats and stop at the cute cafes and bars. Palm trees line the Riva and make it very attractive.
As well as wonderful cuisine, Croatia is known for its excellent wines. You can visit the Putalj Winery for an authentic wine tasting experience during your holiday. It is only 20 minutes from Split. If you book in advance, they may even be able to pick you up.
The beautiful Makarska Riviera is 38 miles long, running from Brela in the north to Gradac in the south. It offers stunning beaches including Punta Rata. The Riviera is popular for its ice cream parlours, nature park, nightlife, harbour, beach, shopping and dining. Kacic Square is overlooked by the majestic Baroque Church of St Mark and is brimming with buzzy restaurants, cafes and bars.
