Clustered at the foot of a green slope backed by dramatic peaks, it's not hard to see how
Podgora got its name,
which means under the mountain. With a long history as a fishing village and a tourist tradition dating back to
the 1920s, Podgora is a sleepy place of 1,500 souls which swells more than fivefold in the summer - it's second only
to Makarska when it comes to tourist numbers. It's not hard to see why: the combination of white shingle, green
pine and rocky grey mountain are a tourist's holy trinity.
This is a laid-back resort enlivened by almost nightly performances from mid-June to the end of August: classical
music, heart-stirring Dalmatian klapa groups, rock and folk dance performances bring drama and culture to warm
evenings. As elsewhere, Podgora's inhabitants for centuries relied on the hinterland for protection and sustenance.
The attractive old inland settlement of Gornja Podgora is worth looking round and serves as an entrance point to
the Biokovo Nature Park.
Makarska Riviera on the mainland coast, between Split and Dubrovnik, is home to some of the country’s loveliest stretches of beach.
Running from Brela in the north to Gradac in the south, the Riviera is about 60 kilometres long and centres on Makarska. Town
is built around a deep sheltered bay, and backed by the rocky heights of Mount Biokovo (1762m), which acts as a buffer from the harsher
inland climate. Biokovo’s sea-facing slopes are criss-crossed by well-marked trails, so besides swimming in the deep turquoise Adriatic.
Without Biokovo mountain, great grey mauntainrising steeply from the coast. Biokovo is not a single mountain but a rang of mountains
that stretches from just above Brela almost to Igrane in the south, about 25km, about half of the Makarska Riviera.
It’s also popular destination for the great climate and facilities.
Podgora has more than 2750 hours
of sun each year and the air temperature above 20°C from July to September. During these same months, the crystal-clear sea also averages
a temperature of above 20°C.
If you’re interested in hanging around beach bars and generally lounging about with beach bodies,
you’ll like Podgora. Outside the high season, things are pretty quiet.
