A little bit about Podstrana – this charming town is only 7km from Split and is referred to as the little Mediterranean under a mountain called Perun which is made up of slopes and peaks uniquely located on the coast of the sea that also connects to the mouth of the bank of the Zrnovicia river, creating a remarkable piece of landscape. Here in Podstrana you can enjoy more than 6km of beaches ideal for swimming and snorkelling, enjoy walks alongside the Zrnovicia river and explore the Perun mountain you can hike and cycle its trials, be sure to ask our team about our “buggy and quad tour” this adventurous tour gives the opportunity to explore the mountain Perun.
