Traffic Information

Makarska is easy to reach by road when you hire a car. It is close to the 76 Highway, which quickly turns into the E65 Highway. The E65 connects Makarska and the surrounding area to Split, the location of the nearest airport. From Makarska, it's a simple 90-minute drive north-west to Split, although it's also possible to take the more scenic coastal road to take in the beautiful shoreline. The coastal road can also be followed south where you'll find traditional fishing villages that provide boat trips to nearby islands.
