Gata village is only a 10-minute drive to a sandy and pebble beach, the magnificent Cetina River and the charming town of Omis. Gata offers a completely unspoiled setting where you have complete privacy. The nearest mini-market is within walking distance. Larger shops and an outstanding dining scene can be found in Omis. Omis is known as the ‘Pirate Town’ due to its location at the Cetina River's mouth and its history of pirates. The Omis Riviera is often thought to be one of Croatia’s best-kept secrets. The scenery is incredibly dramatic, with sharp, jagged mountains all around, contrasting beautifully with the turquoise sea. For a small town, Omis certainly packs a punch with ancient buildings and churches such as the 13th-century Fortress Mirabella and 15th-century Fortress Starigrad, also known as Fortica Fortress, the Omis Summer Festival, gastronomic delights and charming streets where you can wander and enjoy it all. 

The incredible Cetina River is very close to Villa Byron. The river offers an intoxicating, action-packed adventure with an awesome zipline, canyoning, river tubing, rafting, canoeing and paragliding. Just north of the village of Kucice, you can ride in giant inflatable doughnuts and descend the small river rapids or further north, and you can enjoy a family adventure of white water rafting. The bravest can buckle up and fly across the river on the ziplines. You can rent see-through kayaks to explore flora and fauna. Paragliding and canyoning are also popular with expert guides. You can certainly have an exhilarating and unforgettable experience on the Cetina River! 

The stunning town of Split boasts incredible architecture, fantastic shopping and delicious food. The Diocletian’s Palace is a notable landmark built in the 4th century containing a military camp, the magnificent Golden Gate and a villa where the Roman emperor Diocletian retired. You can climb the bell tower of 7th century Saint Domnius Cathedral for an incredible view. Contrasting with the intricate historic buildings is the fabulous Riva, the town’s pedestrian walkway lined with restaurants, bars and palm trees.  

Zlatni Rat Beach on the island of Brac is one of Croatia’s best beaches and adorns many Croatia posters. The island is blessed with stunning scenery and is famous for its very attractive white stone. The White House in Washington is made from Brac stone. Brac is also famous for its  ‘buhavica’ olive oil, cheese, wine, honey and wine. The Stina Winery on the waterfront at Bol is delightful. You should try the Prosec, a little like Australian muscat. It is delicious!

Region

The Dalmatian coast is a veritable treasure trove of stunning landscapes and historic towns, and Omis, situated halfway between the famous port city of Split and the energetic town of Maksarka, is no exception. With its rich history, scenic backdrop, and a plethora of attractions, Omis stands out as a unique and captivating destination for those seeking to explore the charm of Croatia. The town's history is deeply intertwined with its dramatic geographical setting, which is dominated by the imposing Cetina River Canyon and the Mosor Mountain Range.

The old town of Omis, with its narrow cobblestone streets and stone houses, is a place where history and culture converge. It’s a charming place to explore on foot and soak up the local way of life. There are a number of historic churches that you’ll come across while exploring - the Church of St. Michael, the Church of St. Peter, and the Church of St. Rocco, which all showcase intricate architectural details and a sense of reverence. The old town is also home to an abundance of restaurants, cafes, and local shops, it’s an excellent spot to savour authentic Croatian dishes and find unique souvenirs.

One of the most prominent historical attractions in the town is the Mirabella Fortress, often called Peovica. Perched high on a rocky outcrop, this fortress was built during the 13th century and was used as a hideout by the notorious Omis pirates who terrorised the Adriatic Sea. Today, visitors can climb up the steep path to the fortress and enjoy panoramic views of the town, the coast, and the surrounding landscapes.

Omis boasts a pristine stretch of coastline with a variety of beaches, each catering to different tastes. One of the most popular is the sandy beach at the mouth of the Cetina River, offering calm waters perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Adventurous spirits may prefer the pebbly beach of Brzet, known for its perfect conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Just a short drive from Omis, there's the small village of Stanici, which is renowned for its unspoiled beaches and crystal-clear waters. It's a serene place to relax and escape the crowds often found in more touristy locations.

The Cetina River is a defining feature of Omis, and one of the most exhilarating activities here is to take a rafting excursion along its emerald waters. The river cuts through the impressive Cetina Canyon, creating a thrilling white-water rafting experience that appeals to adventure seekers and nature lovers alike. The journey offers panoramic views of the rugged cliffs, lush forests, and the charming villages that dot the landscape.

The nearby Biokovo Nature Park is an outstanding natural attraction. The Biokovo Mountain Range, part of the Dinaric Alps, offers incredible hiking opportunities, with well-marked trails leading to panoramic viewpoints where you can marvel at the Adriatic Sea and the islands scattered along the coast. The juxtaposition of the rugged mountain terrain and the azure waters is simply stunning and will leave a lasting impression.

The history, natural beauty, and cultural vitality of Omis combine to create a destination that is rich in character and charm. Whether you're seeking adventure on the Cetina River, exploring the medieval fortresses, or simply savouring the local cuisine, Omis has something to offer every traveller who ventures to this utterly enchanting corner of the Dalmatian coast.

There is also a leisure park at Split’s Bacvice Beach, and you will find the local game Picigin being played in the shallow water. Participants pass a ball around by hitting it with the palm of their hand without it going into the sea. 

Families enjoy visiting the sensational Plitvice Lakes, National Park. It was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. A series of waterfalls interconnect the park’s sixteen stunning lakes. You can jump in and enjoy the refreshing water. The park is incredibly beautiful.
