Pelješac is the largest peninsula in Dalmatia and its architecture will show you traces of history left by a variety of cultures. The Ston walls connect Mali Ston and Ston, which are known for their rich history and historical stone nucleus, while the walls were built to protect Peljesac by separating it from the mainland. Ston is famous for its salt quarry that dates back to the Dubrovnik Republic Ston and is still in operation today. However it is also known for its oyster beds of various shells which you can taste in restaurants in Ston.
The town of Orebic, the cradle of seafaring captains and sailors, is a place where the tradition of sailors is maintained even today. Trpanj is a small fishing town known for its small, pebble beaches, medicinal mud in Blacu and medicinal Dalmatian plants.
Viganj is a place alongside Bol on the island of Brac and is the favored destination for surfing and kite surfing on the Adriatic.
The people of Peljesac have been involved with viticulture and wine-making, olive growing and have cultivated fruits and vegetables for centuries as a result of its fertile soil and plenty of sunshine. Should you decide to visit Peljesac you will always see dried figs and top quality olive oil on the table. The gastro offer will impress even the pickiest guest and you simply must try the oysters and clams from the Peljesac oyster beds and well-known wines such as Dingac and Postup. Oysters are shells that are eaten raw and it is no secret that they are also considered as being a powerful aphrodisiac. Is there any truth to this theory? We suggest you find out for yourself.
