Pelješac is, after Istria, the second largest peninsula in Croatia. The most remarkable town on Pelješac is Ston, distinctive for the 5.5 km long walls that were erected around it in the 14th, giving it the name the "European Wall of China". Ston is well-known for its oyster farms, which produce the tastiest and best oysters on the Adriatic, so we highly recommend to visit one of the local restaurants if you are passing nearby and taste this famous delicacy with a drop of the famous Pelješac wine. Pelješac’s steep and sunbathed slopes are ideal for growing vines whose grapes are turned into premium wines, such as Dingač and Postup. Great places to taste them are the numerous taverns and wineries along Pelješac's wine roads. By exploring the peninsula’s interior, you will discover numerous medieval churches and monasteries, small picturesque villages that are trapped in past times and the pristine beauty of wildlife.
The southern coast of Pelješac shelters small charming villages like Viganj and Kučište that are known for excellent winds and a paradise for sailors and surfers. The beaches in the bays of Žuljana and Prapratno as well as beach Divna are considered to be the most beautiful beaches on the peninsula. The rich maritime history of the seaside town Orebić is displayed in the Maritime Museum, where you can discover romantic love stories of the many famous seafarers this town has produced over the centuries, eventually giving Orebić the nickname the "Cradle of Sea Captains".
