Komarna was originally a small fisherman’s village on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. The village, although now more of a luxury resort with spectacular views across the cliffs, reefs and islands of the Dalmatian Coastline, isn’t a bustling tourist resort but a picturesque, remote spot from which discerning travellers can enjoy both the glorious Croatian summer and the attractions of the larges cities of Dubrovnik from their own little haven of peace. Local culture and cuisine will always play a large part of your Komarna holiday, and the welcome you receive will be truly heart warming.
Komarna is a very peaceful village where children can play safely and you can always guarantee a smile from the locals. Every self catering Komarna villa affords visitors a beautiful view and easy access to the quaint little pebble beaches which line the coast. Snorkelling, particularly towards the northern end of the beach is great fun, especially if you manage to find the hidden caves which were created to house submarines during the war. Although derelict, the caves are well hidden, and the hunt provides endless hours of exciting entertainment! You can rent boats from a holiday rental in Komarna with ease, allowing you to pack up a picnic and head along the coast to find your own personal beach for the day.
The hills and mountains that surround Komarna are perfect for both walking and mountain biking holidays. There are a huge range of paths which dissect the countryside, clearly marked and taking you to some of the most picturesque and interesting spots along the Dalmatian Coast. Walking or cycling to the Kravica Waterfalls is relatively easy from a Komarna villa, and when you get there, you will be in no doubt the journey was worth it. The crystal clear waters are ideal for a refreshing swim, and you can climb the rocks and dive into the pool, fish or simple absorb the scenery.
If you would prefer a little more adventure, the Neretva River provides plenty of adventure. There are weekly white water rafting trips along the upper reaches, arranged from Mostar, and you can easily rent a kayak or canoe to gently float down the more gentle reaches of the river, giving an unprecedented view of the Croatian countryside.
Dubrovnik is well worth exploring from a Komarna apartment. The city has a staggeringly ancient atmosphere, helped by the wealth of 13th century buildings that still make up the centre. There are stunning views in every direction, with more attractions than you could see in a single holiday. The café culture in Dubrovnik is blissfully relaxing, and if you have a few hours before your flight home, it is defiantly worth nipping into Dubrovnik for a coffee to watch the world drift by.
There is a wonderfully mild climate along the Dalmatian Coast. During the summer months, daily temperatures soar to around 34˚C on the majority of days from June until the end of August. Water temperatures remain easily warm enough to swim in for many months throughout the summer, certainly warm enough from May until November. Even in winter, temperatures average over 10˚C monthly.
The proximity of Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) to a Komarna property rental makes Komarna holidays really easy from the UK. ThomsonFly and British Airways both provide regular flights from Manchester (MAN) and London, and upon your arrival at Dubrovnik, it is recommended that you take a hire car in order to really get the most out of your Komarna holiday.
