Not a typical holiday resort

Omis Croatia

This feels like a real Croatian town in the way that places like Murcia and Calahorra in Spain feel Spanish. Tourists wander through but this is not holiday complex land, it’s a place where local traditions hold strong and where visitors are welcome. 

Unusually for Croatia, there is a long sandy beach with some shingle, located at the end of the dramatic Cetina gorge. Here it’s easy to enjoy river rafting on the Cetina River, take the local bus to Split, just 25 kms away or take a fish picnic out to the islands. 

Inpromptu singing

Omis is famous for its history connected to pirates (so you may often see the word “gusar”- pirate), for building the traditional wooden boats that take visitors on Adriatic cruises and for klapa - a capella form of male singing – formal and impromptu performances are frequent. It’s rather charming. 

Our chosen hotel, the four star Hotel Plaza is in an excellent location, directly on the beach and close to Omis’ bars, restaurants, shops and excellent local market. Our representative visits our featured hotel once a week.
