The beaches are always quiet so it’s a fantastic place to relax and soak up some sun.

If we head to the pretty harbour town of Trstenik, then you can expect to see beautiful coves and unspoiled beaches. This quaint fishing village is located on the tip of the stunning Peljesac Peninsula and there are plenty of waterfront bars and restaurants for you to relax in.
