Even though some beautiful Orebic pebble beaches and public hotel beaches with pools are just 3 min walk from the house, hillside and valleys on Peljesac are also something worth exploring. That is also because this is one of the best wine regions in Croatia. Driving through the peninsula you’ll discover vast wineyards in the inner part or those maybe a bit more impressive wineyards on the hill banks along the southern shoreline. Wine tasting at the local wineries is of course a must.
From the mountaintops above Orebic to the hidden villages inside Peljesac there are many monuments of human presence in this area. Do not miss to climb the city walls of Ston (second largest in the world) or to visit the charming house Mimbeli in Orebic. Orebic is also famous for its long maritime tradition – the Maritime Museum is full of sailors’ stories from voyages all around the world, Orebic shipping industry and various objects related to the life on the sea. But, with many sites and picturesque villages scattered around the peninsula, there is also so much more to explore.
