Right on the sea bank, at the bottom of St Ilia’s Mountian /altitude 961 meters/ - Orebic, the cardle of sea captains and seafarers is the pearl of the Peljesa Riviera. It is located at the south-west point of 70 kilometers long Peljesac Peninsula, which has been connected with the mainland by Ston resort causeway. Orebic is virtually a large pebble beach. Owing to the exceptionally convenient geographical location it has been protected from unpleasant north wind blows.

Though it is daily exposed to the sun, the light refreshing mistral wind will make your stay very pleasant. In prehistoric times this region was inhabited by Illyric tribes. Peljesac peninsula was purchased by Dubrovnik Republic in the 14th century, which generated the prosperity of sea trade. Homes of sea captains are small museums, each for itself, even today.
An attraction of Orebic is the Franciscan Monastery and the Church of Our Angels Madonna. The view from 150 meters high Monastery loge on Peljesac Channel and Korcula, Mljet and Lastovo islands is unforgettable.
History and tradition say that OrebiÊ sea captains and seafarers regularly saluted Our Angels Madonna by ship sirens when leaving or returning to OrebiÊ, as a sing of a high respect and thanks for her protection. Franciscans would then reciprocate from the bell tower.

Your stay in Orebic and in this part of Peljesac Riviea will not be boring. Mountaineers will e happy because there are clearly noticeable tracks to the top of Saint Ilia’s Mountain. Bicycle sport enthusiasts will have exceptional conditions to enjoy bicycle riding through beautiful natural surroundings. Wind surfing /Viganj resort/ and snorkeling can also be a part of an active holiday.
When visiting second largest Croatian peninsula, the Peljesac Peninsula, it would be a great pity not to see it’s vineyards, and not to taste it’s vineyards, and not to taste it’s high quality wines. Wines produced on Peljesac Peninsula have made this region known in the world.
