Trstenik

The region around Trstenik is ideal for relaxing beach holidays in southern Croatia. The town is located in an idyllic cove on the southern coast of the Peljesac Peninsula, which extends to the Island of Korcula lying in the Adriatic Sea. The small town is well-known for its surrounding vineyards, which are some of the most important in Croatia. The vines here thrive particularly well due to the steep slopes surrounding Trstenik and the high number of sunshine hours. Those who visit this area must try a glass of Dingac red wine- one of the most popular wines in the region and the most famous wine in Dalmatia.

The trip here is worth it not only for the fruits growing in the surrounding vineyards, but also for the picturesque, densely wooded hills. For those who desire a trip through the vineyards and the pine forests, accompanied by the continuous chants of crickets and chirps of birds, should hop on a mountain bike. The route through the steep slopes can be very challenging sometimes. Alternatively, there are beautiful hiking and walking paths that every tourist should explore.

The original Church of St. Michael lies in the hills making it the perfect spot for the residents who once sought protection from pirates here. Only in the 19th century did the settlement begin to develop around the coast. The town provides tourists with a small selection of cafés and restaurants that invite you to take a break on the promenade, with the local beach stretching below.
