Things to do
-Beaches. Nearby you’ll find beautiful white pebble beaches, which tend to be long and narrow, and are served by waterfront cafés and restaurants. The shorefront is fringed by dense and unspoiled pine forest and the steep hills overlooking the coast are clad with olive groves and dotted with picturesque old villages.
-Boat trips. Excursions are organised from nearby Makarska to visit the islands of Brac and Hvar, which sit just off the coast of Tucepi. Hvar is especially worth seeing – it’s covered with vineyards and lavender, and is famed for its excellent sparkling wine and olives.
-Diving. This part of the Dalmatian coast is known for its calm and clear waters, with comfortable temperatures for much of the year. This makes it an ideal place for anyone trying diving for the first time. Exciting dives in the area take in wrecks, rich wildlife and underwater caves.
-Biokovo Mountain. Standing at more than 1700 metres, Biokovo is the highest peak in Dalmatia, and stands directly inland from Tucepi. It’s a challenging climb, but achievable for most walkers, and the views from the top are beautiful, encompassing the many islands that sit just off the coast.
-Day trips. There are a host of interesting places to visit close by – including countless beach resorts, all with clear, shallow waters. Omis, a half hour to the northwest, is a medieval town sitting in the shadow of an impressive canyon. Split is also well worth the trip and boasts the UNESCO Listed Diocletian’s Palace.
