Beaches in Croatia are perhaps the number one reason why so many tourists visit this beautiful country. Other reasons to visit Croatia include historical towns (Croatia has 7 UNESCO Heritage Sites), yummy food, great wines, outdoor activities, summer festivals, and still a good value for money.
Peljesac peninsula has some of the best beaches in all Croatia. And the best part is that they are, for the most part of a year, not crowded.
I've meant to write about Ficovic restaurant in Hodilje near Ston for some time, but for some reason I've never done it. It's time to fix this. Located in Hodilje, a small coastal village just few kilometers north of Ston, on the Peljesac peninsula, Ficovic is a no-frills eatery by the sea, and with its own small beach.
If you've been around this blog, then you perhaps already know how much we love Peljesac Peninsula. We visit the peninsula whenever we can; sometimes only for a scenic drive and gorgeous views; other times for serious reasons like wine tasting.
Peljesac peninsula is the second largest peninsula in Croatia (after Istria), and it's one of my favorite parts of Croatia (again, after Istria). Peljesac peninsula is famed for its rugged coast, pebble beaches, salt pans, fortification walls, sleepy villages, red wine – Plavac mali, and delicious oysters and other seafood.
