Characterized by its sunny climate and fertile landscape, Croatia’s Peljesac peninsula is one of its largest, renowned for its Plavic Mali grapes and wine production. Jutting out into the Peljesac channel and rubbing shoulders with Korcula Island, the scenic peninsula benefits from its strategic location, at the center of southern Dalmatia and is a popular day trip from nearby Dubrovnik.
Starting at the coastal town of Ston, home to the Great Wall of Croatia and famed for its local oysters, the Peljesac Peninsula stretches for 70km, dotted with family-run wineries and some of the region’s best swimming beaches. Much of the action on Peljesac centers around Orebic, the largest town, which is famous for its sandy Trstenica Beach, but additional highlights include Viganj, one of Croatia’s prime windsurfing spots, the picturesque fishing village of Trpanj and the wine-growing villages of Postup and Dingač.
