Orebic, Croatia – This tiny little village on the Peljasec Peninsula could possibly rate as my most favourite place in Croatia.
On arrival, we headed straight for the beach – and a sand one at that – where we bumped into a Serbian / Swiss couple we’d previously met in Premanatura (Cape Kamenjak). Tai met 3 local boys of the same age and was having a ball and I got to have some adult conversation. It was a fabulous afternoon.
There was a walking/cycle path hugging the entire coastline, with numerous bays for swimming and enjoying the crystal clear water. The next morning, we put on our costumes and headed for the beach. It was time for a day off from driving, working, researching and sightseeing, in fact, I was long overdue for some downtime and couldn’t wait to bask in the sun with my book. In the afternoon we did a long bike ride, stopping for the obligatory gelatos of course!
There were hardly any other tourists in this little paradise and if my visa had allowed, this is where I would have stayed for a good few days. Orebic, we loved you!
